A few years back Stampin Up had some little metal tins in their clearance section and my friend Linda and I were so excited because we thought we could use them as tins for greeting cards. What we didn't realize was the corners were rounded and that made it impossible for A2 size cards to fit in their and we were stuck with the tins. I have used a few for different projects but this year I used 6 to make these nice little candy recipe tins as prizes for the party.

Ranger Alcohol Inks
Various Cricut Cartridges
Make The Cut Software (MTC)
Each tin had a total of 12 candy recipes, all of which I have tried and are my favorites. I did choose the easiest of recipes that I use since I know some folks aren't candy makers and like to keep things simple.
The biggest problem was making sure I had enough paper to complete a full set of 6 recipe sets that included 12 cards each! Somehow I was able to find enough paper in my stash to complete the task.
I think all the recipients of the candy tins really liked them. Carmen ended up with two somehow but she was nice enough to trade one with someone else. I am not sure what kinda of recipe things I might make for next year but it seems my guests do like those type of items for prizes so I guess I will have to come up with something!
