Snicky, Snacky Snoo!

Good Morning everyone!

Today I wanted to share this gift that I made for Joseph's Scool. They collect donations towards the snacks they have in the mornings and the box that they use was getting a bit tatty and torn.

I found an old coffee tin that was still in the cupboard and full of coffee. Unfortunately the coffee had gone out of date, so at least the tin didn't get wasted. I covered it with striped paper and cut a circle to cover the plastic lid. It was quite easy to cut a slit in the lid too. I was hoping that would be the case!

I stamped the orange panel with a gorgeous stamp from a Fancy Pants set (sorry, I'm not sure which one), and I was going to appply some adhesive stones, but I know they wouldn't last long in the hands of little ones! The lettering is Papermania; some old, some new.

I'm giving it to school today, so I really hope they like it!

Love, Clare x
