Creating Pretty And Food-Safe Containers For Christmas Baking

Happy November everyone!  Today is the first Sunday in November which means it's the beginning of another "Anything Goes (except a card) Mixed Media Challenge" over at STAMPlorations.  Link up any project of yours that uses a stencil, any stencil, for a chance to win some pretty great stuff, Go HERE for all the details.  
This month I am showcasing these lovely containers I created from some empty hot chocolate and nut tins which I will fill with baking to give away at Christmas.
I believe that pretty packaging makes a gift even better and it's an added bonus if I can re-purpose something that can be used over and over again.

I like to use empty food containers that have paper sides and metal rims and bottoms for this project They are food-safe, sturdy and the paper sides accept paint and pastes a lot better than metal tins.
Using only a few products you probably have on hand and some bling from my local dollar store, it was a pretty simple process.  Sand and paint the outside of the tin in what ever color you like.  Using a stencil, add a pretty pattern in a contrasting color.
Stamp, heat emboss and cut out co-ordinating images and glue to the tin.

Add some pretty fabric to the inside of the container and embellish using as much glitter and shiny stuff as you like.

I used Fabri-tac glue for this and it worked  beautifully, and it just looks so much prettier than an empty tin.
For some added sparkle on the outside, I added Stickles and Glossy Accents.
I just love how amazing this empty mixed nut tin looks now.
And here is photograph of all the things I used to alter these tins...
Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and please do leave me a comment if you like what  you are seeing!
