Christmas Tins


One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas Season is to make fudge to give to friends and family. The tricky part is to find a nice way to present it. Fudge tends to dry out if air gets to it; plus it is sticky. Paper plates or plastic bags don't work well.

Years ago, one of Mom's friends gave her a bag of little coffee tins (apparently, she drank a lot of it!) and Mom asked me if I could recycle them for anything. They are just the size to hold about 6 ounces of fudge. This is what I came up with...


I measure the space between the top and bottom of the can and cut strips of printed Christmas paper to fit. Then, as you see in the first photo, I put double sided tape all along the edges of the paper. Starting one one side, I press the paper strip all the way around, working to keep the paper straight.


Where the seam comes together, I cut a coordinating strip of paper and tape it vertically, to hide the seam and bring it all together.


Now I have a nifty little stack of fudge containers all ready for the Holidays!
