When something is sold out....

you get creative at the dollar store!!! I was so disapointed when PaperTrey sold out of their nugget tins! I bought the Holiday Treat stamps, 10 tins and then realized there are many, many people I want to be able to give just a little something to for Christmas and 10 tins just plain wasn't enough!
---
I even went down to Bellingham to buy a ton of the Hersey Nugget chocolates. But now had no containers to put them in!
---
So, at the dollar store today I started poking around in all the containers and ended up with these glass jars! Just add some tissue to hold the chocolates in place, ranger alcohol inks, embossing and ribbon!
---
Yay! Problem solved and all my friends will be gettin' some chocolate!

I think there are many of us disappointed that the nugget tins were sold out. You came up with a good alternative solution though Theresa! I love how you did the alcohol inks on the lid!

I just love dollar stores! you never know what kind of fun stuff you will come home with. Your project is so fab. I think I will have to steal your idea for the nugget tins, I've been noticing how hard it is to get hold of them lately. Beautiful!
