Monogrammed Mints

mintsHey stampers! I have a quickie for you today!

mintcaseI was in line at Aldis and spotted these mints for $1 each. Because the top is flat – and because we stampers are always eye-balling items that can be used for our next stamping project 🙂 – I realized these would be easy to cover with paper. So I quickly scooped up several containers and created these.

IMG_4793The labels are printed on a metallic-looking plastic which, to my delight, peel off easily without any resistance.

Our 2-1/2” Circle Punch is perfect to cover the top without extending beyond the edges of the lid when the container is open.

The Pacific Point starburst was made with the Scallop Circle Punch. Go here for a video tutorial on how to create the starburst edges.

I hope you have an Aldis near you. If so, have fun creating your own hand-stamped packaged mints!
