Peppermint Popcorn Tins

I wanted to get the employees at the store something for Christmas, and to let them know how much I appreciate them, but needed to do it for very little expense. My solution came in these simple plastic "tins" from Wal-Mart, some candy canes, a few chocolates and a hand-stamped tag tied up with ribbon on top. And inside.... the most delicious, Christmas candy treat I've ever made! Peppermint Popcorn! Oh my stars, I discovered this recipe last night on the Tasty Kitchen website, and I know that I will never make any other Christmas treat ever again! I'm a peppermint freak anyway, so this is definitely right up my alley! I quickly made up several batches of the popcorn, stamped these tags and made up nine gifts to take to work!
The Christmas tree comes from the Snowflakes and Stardust stamp set from Rubbernecker, and the sentiment is from Impression Obsession.

Just wanted to share in case you need some last minute ideas!

Happy stamping, and if I don't get back here again before the weekend I wish you all a very Merry CHRISTmas!!!

Tammy what a great idea! I'm going to have to try this. We usually do popcorn with milk chocolate drizzled over it. Now we'll have two kinds to give. YUM!
