Well it’s camping time of year and one thing that my girls look forward to most of all when we camp is Smores…they love ’em!
And so I decided to make some little Smores Kits containing all those goodies needed to make these yummy treats for them to take camping…and what a great little treat this will make for their Girl Scout friends too!
I found the PERFECT stamps in the set Under the Stars to embellish my tin – you can find that set on pg 94 of the Catalog and in there is even a Smores stamp – how cool is that?!
That tin comfortably holds Graham Crackers, Hershey Bars and Marshmallows and I love that the lid is clear so you can see the contents inside…
I decided to make a Belly Band to go around my tin so that it can easily slide off to access the goodies – how did I make it?
To make the Belly Band…
- Take a piece of cardstock sized 11″ x 3″ – I used the color Early Espresso – and tear down the length* on both sides to get a rustic look
- Place it into a score tool (or paper trimmer with score blade inserted) with the long side along the top edge and score it at 3 1/8″, 4 1/8″, 7 3/4″ and 8 3/4″
- Fold along the score lines and wrap around your tin – ensure there is a snug fit but you can still slide it off and use Sticky Strip to adhere the ends together
- Embellish as wished!
I added a band of Old Olive to mine and onto this – check out that paper – isn’t it perfect for a camp theme? We have a camp tablecloth just like it! I found this paper in Pawsitively Prints II DSP that you can find on pg175…
I then wrapped around a piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding and tied it in a bow on the side…I stamped and colored in my bear and added him using Dimensionals so he pops off the tin…I then decided to stamp his nose bit again and cut it out and added it using a Dimensional for a more realistic look.
Finally I stamped, colored and cut out my Smore and threaded it onto a piece of Bakers Twine that you can find on pg 10 of the Summer Mini Catalog – I added a button from Brights Designer Buttons at the other end and adhered it to my tin.
What do you think? I think it is one cute yummy & treat – I hope the kids like ’em!
* Not happy with tearing your papers and cardstocks by hand? Then there is the perfect tool for you! It is called the Tearing Edge and you can find it on pg 198 of the Catalog or online by clicking HERE – it makes tearing a breeze!

Unbelievable. I absolutely love the whole idea! How fun would this be to make for each one of the grandkids so everyone has their very own??? I can’t think of enough words to say how impressed I am (and how fast I’m going to do it)
What a wonderful idea–love this for our grandaughter to make for her friends as gifts. Thanks for sharing.
love this project… shat is the source for the tins… what are the dimensions of the tin?
Such an adorable project! Would you be able to tell me where to get the tins? I live in NW Ontario, Canada and have been looking for a website that might carry them. Love your work.
That is such a great, creative idea! I love it!
this is the cutiest idea what size are the tins and where do get them
