Candy Countdown Container

Click to enlarge to view poem

I saw a version of this on another blog and I loved the idea. I had one more tin left from Specialty Bottle, so this is what I used it for. First I used my Marvy Giga nad Mega scallop circle punches for the lid. The stamps I used are from Punch Pals. The d.p. is by Sandy Lion. I added ribbon around the lid with a tag that has a poem on it. You can click on the photos to read the poem. I adhered a strip of the d.p. around the container as well and filled it with 8 candy kisses. This is for Austin's teacher. The idea is to give it to a teacher before the kids go on Winter Break. Each day they can take out a piece of candy to countdown the days left until break. Great idea, huh!?
