I bought a few of these tins on SU! clearance rack and altered to make Thanksgiving gifts to thanks those special people in my kids' lives like piano teachers, school teachers, Sunday School teachers, etc. I think they were only $1.99
All I did was layer some paper, ribbon and embellish with a few stamps.....
Inside are the goodies..peppermint patties all decorated (but not by me...a customer's son. His name is Drew and he has his own busines..doesn't he do a super job!?) I apologize this photo would NOT flip. Anyway..I thought this would be a simple way to say thank to someone this season!

Today I attempted to make the project by LeAnn Greff came up with using the Holly Jolly rub ons and designer paper...LOVE IT! It was so easy and the cards turned out really cute. I made an accordian file a couple of weeks ago using the same paper, so I think I make more of them and stuff them with these cards--great Christmas gifts! This morning I made 10 cards, but the pack of rub on could easily make 20 or more cards. Great value!

If you were wondering how the candle in the Holiday Mini was altered I have the answer! It is very simple. All you need is the two sided tacky tape and glass glitter! First, you wrap your candle in the two sided tape to the desired height. Unwrap the second side and roll the candle in the glass glitter. That is it! You then can embellish your candle however you like. Makes a beautiful gift for Thanksgiving or Christmas! The candle you see above is one I am working on for Thanksgiving. Literally took me less than 10 minutes. Now I just have to figure out what stamp I want to use to embellish it. I am going make these for some Christmas gifts!
