Christmas Gifts/Hot Chocolate Tins – Day 1

ETA: Well my friend and fellow SU demo called me this AM to tell me to use the slit punch and tie it on with ribbon, this was what I was going to do. One thing she said though: “you already used ALOT of ribbon”, I know, but, it looks good and at this point I don’t care!!! I just wanted them to look good and stay adhered to the tin, so they look slightly different now.

I have “frantically” been getting gifts together for my daughter and son’s teachers, my daughters Brownie leaders and my son’s speech therapist, so I have making 7 of everything, it’s alot of work in a short amount of time, but, I am having fun! These Tea tins which are found here at Papertrey Ink, I stocked up on them early, I will be putting a homemade Hot Chocolate Mix in it, stamps are from Papertrey Ink also and can be found here.

These “little tins” have actually quite ticked me off! The front label has 3 layers of cardstock, well originally I adhered it with double sided sticky strip, well, it started to come apart, than I tried Mono Multi Purpose Glue, nope, still didn’t work, than I used more double sided sticky strip (by this time they are starting to not look so good)…argh, still coming apart…what’s up? I have already invested enough time making these, so this picture was before I ripped off the first 2 layers to try using 3-D dots, nope not going to work than I tried using Glue Lines, still not WORKING! becoming slightly agitated now! Than I decided to rip the whole label off and start all over again, so they are sitting on my craft table with no label…back to the drawing board, I think I’m just going to create the label…AGAIN because of course the old one’s are completely ruined and than I’m just going to use some ribbon to “tie” it on.

Anyone else making these having any trouble keeping the label adhered? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I’m going to try posting daily for the next few days with all my Christmas Gift projects…assuming I’m going to get them done daily! and than I’ll end with the finished bags with all the goodies in them!
