Candy Tin Gift Card Holder

I love getting gift cards but I hate giving them.  I worry that people will think “You couldn’t think of anything to get me!”  {Of course, that’s just my own paranoia.}  But I am trying hard to find fun and different ways of gifting them.  The Candy Tin Gift Card Holder is a sweet treat with a surprise!

I got these tins at Pick Your Plum a couple of weeks ago.  I bought three dozen…THREE DOZEN.  I had no idea in mind for them but knew I had to have them…LOL

{I may have a slight problem when it comes to daily deals and M&Ms.  If a week goes by and I don’t get a PYP package, my husband thinks I’m depressed.}

Here’s what I did…

First, clean out the tin.  {Let’s be sanitary, people.}

Then place the gift card in the tin.  It’s the perfect size, by the way.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that it fits so well.

Add their favorite candy and secure with a little washi tape!

Now who wouldn’t like to get a little tin of candy?  And then, SURPRISE!  =)

These Candy Tin Gift Card Holders are a quick and easy way to package gift cards!  You could even do small jewelry.  I know if Kyle had presented me a tin of M&Ms with an engagement ring at the bottom, I would have melted!  {Bad pun.}

Until next time,

Happy Wrapping!
