Happy Halloween Surprise!

I don't often have a reason to make anything besides cards, but I really wanted to do something nice for both my home health aide and nurse to let them know I appreciate how much they spoil me. Since it's Halloween time and I have both tins and Hershey's nuggets, I decided to put them all together and make a small box of chocolates for each of them.

Close-up of the tag:

I had such fun coloring the jars and pumpkins with my Spectrum Noir pens, which I don't use nearly enough. I found the designer series paper around the nuggets and on the belly bands behind the main images in my stash. Really, there's not much more to say, it's such an easy project! The hardest part was staying under my aide's radar since she's everywhere and notices everything. Oh, and not saying "neener neener, I have a secret" to either of them, as that would only have ended in me spoiling the surprise.

At any rate, they both loved their gifts and were duly surprised. Since they both have kids, the hard part for them will be to enjoy the chocolate for themselves!

To those of you who enjoy the holiday, Happy Halloween!

Spooky smiles,
Joyce Spear a.k.a. StamperJoyce

These are so adorable!!! What a great idea to do for them!! I have seen various ideas on Pinterest, etc that use little containers similar to these. My question is- where in the world do you get containers like these?? Especially with the open window on top; I prefer this one rather than a closed/no open window on the lid. I've heard to use Altoid candy containers. But I don't like these candies, nor know anyone who does. (Luv2stamp)

Thanks, Jennifer! To be honest, I acquired my tins in a bulk buy share several years ago, so I am not certain of the original source. Given how popular these Hershey's nuggets tins are, though, I'm pretty sure you can use an internet search engine to find them. Potential suppliers that come to mind offhand include Paper Mart, U-Line, and Specialty Bottle. Another possible way to find a source may be to talk to an active Stampin' Up demonstrator who has recently posted a Hershey's Tin project. Hope this helps!
