Christmas Cookie Tin...

I love to bake lots of Christmas cookies and hand them out to friends and family during the holiday season. So when I saw these cute little tins at the dollar store I could not resist decorating them up for the festive season!


I have a stamp set from Sunshine Designs that has 4 different images of houses, so I stamped some houses in row and coloured them with copics, added lots of liquid applique for snow, then cut them out and glued them to the cookie container!
Stamptacular Sunday's challenge is A Time for Giving.
Have a wonderful day and thank-you so much for coming and having a visit.I know it can get so busy this time of year!

What a neat idea. The tin looks fantastic with a matching card. Did you stamp on card or paper, and what sort of glue do you use to stick them on.Is there poly on top to protect them? GREAT idea.Love it.
