Chocolate Snowmen

When I was at Michael's I bought another one of those adorable snowman tins with the intention of altering it too. The last one I only altered it slightly. I mean, how much can you alter this? It's just too darn cute mess with. I like the organza bow on here. I think it gave the tin a more delicate touch!!

I bought some Nuggets and decorated them up. I stamped the snowman from "Very Merry" on mailing labels. I colored them in with markers and wrapped them around the Nuggets. This tin held 10. A PERFECT amount for gift giving.

This is a very quick and easy gift to make. I was surprised at how quick and easy it was to stamp, color and affix the labels. These tins are the way to go for those gifts you need to make in a hurry. Most people like chocolate. I happen to be one of those people who don't care a whole lot for chocolate. I have to be in the mood for it. My idea of the perfect chocolate chip cookie is one with 3 chocolate chips in it!!! That is the ideal chocolate chip cookie!!! It's not that I don't like chocolate, I just don't like that much chocolate in my mouth at one time.

I think these would make wonderful teacher gifts, something for the paper carrier, the mail carrier, the coach, a little extra gift for the kiddies, etc. Plus once the candy is gone the ribbon can be removed from the tin and they can reuse it! Or they can keep the ribbon on and still use it!!!

I thank you SO much for stopping by,
Wanda

Too Darn Cute. Of course I could never make one. I would eat all the chocolate before it got into is holder.

What a neat idea. I am in several groups in which I would like to give a small gift to each of them. This would be fantastic.
Thank you for the idea.
