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??)
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

Other bits I used are the Embossing Buddy, Versamark, Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Tool and Basics Pearls.
Aren’t they cute!
