teacher pails

I think I told you I wanted to show these little pails to you yesterday but I didn't finish them until yesterday afternoon so...sorry about that! These little pails I got in a package of three from the dollar spot at Target when we were there earlier this week. When Kyler reminded me that it was Teacher Appreciation week I, initially, wasn't going to do anything special as we've been doing things all year but then remembered these cute little tins and that I had some candy and went with it. The rub-ons are from SU! and are the package you could get at Sale-A-Bration this year. I'm not entirely sure why I put celebrate on the tin with the butterfly. It turned out okay though because that is the pail Kyler gave the student teacher so it could be seen as celebrating her time with the class. That would make sense, right? These little pails hold five of the new Hershey's Bliss candies. If you are wondering if they are good and if you should try them...I'd say YES! They are yummy!

I thought that you might want to see how many little candies fit into one of the Altoid tins...just in case you would like to make one yourself. I got a total of 12 candies in there. Now...I do have to say that I'm happy I was using a sleeve for that tin as the top did not close completely. Oh, and the Dove candies...those are Hazelnut Caramel Dove Candies. Ummm...yeah...those are good too!

So, that is it for today. I hope you all have a super fantastic Friday! I'm so glad it is finally here! See ya all later!
