    Kimberly Van Diepen: Hi there! I am Kimberly Van Diepen. I am a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I am here to show you how to make this beautiful baby themed candy tin for your next baby shower. So let's get started.

    The first thing that we want to do is we are going to wrap some chocolates to put inside our tin. I went ahead and I took about one and a quarter by three and a half inch piece of pattern paper. I am just going to put my chocolate down just like this and then I'm going to wrap it and so it sticks, I am just going to use a little bit of adhesive on the other side and fold it over.

    So let's open that up and stick it inside and now let's wrap the outside to make it pretty. To wrap the outside I took a piece of pattern paper and this is two and a half inches by eleven inches.

    In order to wrap you are just going to take your pattern paper like this, you are going to flip it over. We want to take a little bit of adhesive though to make sure that's going to stay in place.

    The next thing I want to do is take this beautiful blue ribbon and wrap it around and I am going to tie it in a bow. Now once you have your bow tied you'll just give it a nice little fluff and then you want to take some ribbon scissors and just cut those ends out at an angle.

    Now the next thing we are going to do is stamp the baby buggy. So I am going to use a marker. I am going to take my marker and just outline the baby buggy. I am going to just huff on it and then I am going to punch using the tag punch. I am going to come right in and punch that image out just like that.

    Now once you have your image punched, I am going to take a little ink on a sponge and I am just going to go very gently around all the edges of the baby buggy. I am going to use a cutter kit and I am just going to use it on the edges of the tag punch.

    Again just to roughen the edge I am going to add some dimensionals to the back of my tag just to give the project a little added dimension and we are going to place this on the front of our tin, just like that.

    The next thing I want to do is I want to just add a sentiment. Now this is about a half inch by two and three quarter inch piece of craft card stock. I am going to ink up my bundle of love sentiment and stamp it right down by this bottom edge.

    I want to first punch a hole because we are going to actually attach that to the ribbon. I am going to use my snips and I am going to cut a V at the bottom of that to make it a banner.

    Now I am also going to take my cutter kit and I am going to roughen up the edges of the bundle of love sentiment. To give this a little bit of a curl, I am just going to take my fingers and roll it a little bit.

    Lastly, I'm going to take my linen thread and attach that sentiment directly onto the ribbon and there you have a baby themed candy tin for your next baby shower.
