Its that time of year!

Gina K is launching five new stamp sets tonight and two of them are designed to work with the much sought after, altoid tins!

Its that time of year, everyone is getting sick with one icky thing or another. I'll fully admit it, I'm a major germ a phobe. I've been known to pull my son from preschool simply as a precaution when I know there's something particularly nasty going around.

The stamp set will create the label on the center, and then I traced the lid of the tin onto a piece of paper and trimmed around with a pencil. I attached the designer paper with Tombo adhesive and then once it was dry, I smoothed all the edges with my white sanding block.

There are tons of sentiments included in this set to make lots of different type gifts.... however, I thought this would be a fun little emergency kit for germaphobes like me!
Inside I've tucked some pain reliever, hand sanitizer two packets of airborne and a chapstick.
Using my Crop o Dile, I punched two small holes in the edge of the tin to thread my ribbon for a little handle. Back in the day, when I was working in an office, I would have loved to have this handy when someone in a meeting with me inevitably had the sneezes. Now, I'm going to tuck it in my car so that I'm stocked up when we're out and about!

Don't forget, Gina K's launch party is tonight on the SCS Member Company Forum from 7-9pm Central Standard Time. That's 8pm EST for me which is perfect!!!! Looking forward to seeing you there!

the makers of Airbourne just settles a huge lawsuit for millions of dollars because the product does not work. Don't spend your money on it anymore-
