The Paper Variety: Challenge Week 11

Hello fellow bloggers! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! This week the challenge at the Paper Variety is super fun, I love all the entries so far! I can't wait to see which lucky blogger will win this time!

For my submission, I am sharing with you my Hershey's Nugget tins! I love these, they are the perfect little gift for a friend, co-worker, or teacher, and you can always alter the tins to whatever you like! For mine, I used patterned paper from the 'Tis the Season Stack from DCWV! I love this paper stack, everything coordinates and is so fun to use, did I mention I love it?!

Each tin holds 12 Hershey's Nuggets. For each tin, I used 2 or 3 different coordinating patterns. For the nuggets, each strip is cut 1" x 3". I tried using redline sticky tape, tape runner, and even glue dots to hold the nugget papers in place, but it did not want to hold! I eventually just ended up using Scotch tape to hold them in place, and hey, it worked! The paper wrapped around the tin is 3" x 9" and I used the scallop trim punch on each edge. I added some ribbon and a saying from the Tiny Treats Christmas Stamp Set and a tiny bell.

I made a total of 18 tins. I purchase my nugget tins here for a great price, they are a tinsy bit smaller than the ones from Papertrey Ink, but are less expensive and still fit 12 nuggets inside. I can't wait to give these out as gifts!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
