A Gift for a Doctor or Medical Student

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Here is one of the Christmas gifts I gave my brother this year. He is in med school studying to be a doctor, and I usually try to think of medical-related things to give him. One year I gave him the game Operation and this year I made him a special tin of goodies.


When I saw this label stamp from the Waltzingmouse Rescue Remedies stamp set, I decided I had to make this for my brother for Christmas. 


I stamped the label onto white shimmer cardstock using Brilliance inks (both the paper and ink have a subtle sparkle), and then attached it to the tin with Scor-tape. The cold steel of the tea tin already looks kind of medicinal, like an old fashioned medicine bottle.

Here's the "medicine" inside the tin...


Peppermints! :) I lined the inside of the tin with Christmas parchment paper.


My brother thought it was fun and really liked it. Now I need to start thinking what I'll make for him next year!

I made a lot of gifts, tags and wrapping this year for Christmas. I'll be sharing more with you over the next few days.

Supplies
Paper: White Shimmer (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Rocket Red, Graphite Black (Brilliance inks)
Other: Tea Tin (Papertrey Ink), Labels 4 nesties

ETA: My grandma was readmitted to the hospital and I promised her I would send lots of prayers. If you have a spare moment, could you send up some prayers for my grandma, that she starts to feel better real soon. Thanks so much.
