Rainbow Coloured Skittles Sweetie Tins Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Rainbow Coloured Skittles Sweetie Tins Tutorial

I need to put this out there early on, I did not eat an entire bag of skittles during the making of this project…

It was only half a bag….

Seriously though, if you’re a crafter like me, with small children around, then making treats for them to indulge in, or better yet, making treats with them, it is going to be inevitable that one puts on a few pounds around the waist.

But what a really good excuse huh?

I love making little things for the boys, and yes, they do love to wander into my office in the hope that they can snaffle some treats that aren’t yet used (please do not tell them about the rainbow pips, okay??)

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Rainbow Coloured Skittles Sweetie Tins Tutorial Green and Purple

I decided though that I was going to use lip balm jars for the makings of this project, and while you can’t see inside them, the top decoration definitely reflects the contents!

It’s great that Skittles come in so many colours!

You do need 6 punches to create the pots identically, but of course, you can switch it up a little!

1-1/2″ Circle for Glimmer Paper

1-3/8″ Circle for Black Cardstock

1-1/4″ Circle for Coloured Cardstock

Petite Petals for Coloured Cardstock

Itty Bitty Accents for Black Cardstock

Washi Label Punch for Awesomely Artistic Sentiment

Other bits I used are the Embossing Buddy, Versamark, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool and Basics Pearls.

Aren’t they cute!

hope you enjoy the video!

  1. Sam – love, love these – so cute!! Could you please tell me if you know the size of these tins please – either in grams or height/circumference? Checked out the tins at suppliers and didnt realise there were so many different sizes! Thanks for a wonderful project – again!

  2. Very cute Sam, love the little balm pots!

  3. Diana W. says:

    Darling! What a great idea.

  4. Sam, you are so clever! Thank you for inspiring me by your videos and crafts. I often get little treats for my hubby and kids and, because of your inspiration, began making little boxes and bags etc to put them in. I know when I send a box of goodies to my daughter (who is away at college), she loves to get the paper boxes and bags with laundry money or treats and candies! Thank you! I have also noticed my husband has saved a few of the little boxes and bags I have made for him too. It is special. 🙂 I feel good making things for them and they love receiving the treats, which makes me feel even better for making them smile! You are helping to make the world a brighter, happier place through crafts! 🙂
