Easter Tin

I have to say that I love the dollar section at Target!! I picked up these tins and a few little goodies to put inside. My kids really liked the Reeses Pieces carrot, and my husband kept trying to steal the Cadbury eggs!! I guess I will have to make more of these for my family!


I used Plantin Schoolbook to cut the oval at 3 1/2 inches.
I cut 3 ovals and stamped Happy Easter on one  and Happy Spring on another. My stamps were both from Robyn's Happiest Moments stamp set.
 I glued two of the ovals together and then put a craft stick on the pack and then I glued the last oval on. Now I have a double sided egg.
I used a chalk ink pad to ink around the edges of the ovals.

Very cute baskets! I LOVE the dollar bins as well. The only problem is they can add up really fast :)

I had the same idea. I picked up two of the yellow ones. After Easter I plan to use them to hold my Copic and watercolor pencils.
