Popcorn Tins

Pack two kinds of homemade flavored popcorn in one bucket tin.

Introduction

Follow the recipes to make Macadamia Butter-Crunch Popcorn and Chocolate-Almond Popcorn.

Materials

  • Popcorn
  • Bucket tin
  • Card stock
  • Paper ribbon
  • Gift tag

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Pack two kinds of homemade flavored popcorn in one bucket tin. Follow the recipes to make Macadamia Butter-Crunch Popcorn and Chocolate-Almond Popcorn.

  2. Step 2

    Purchase bucket tins at a home store. Then cut card-stock dividers to fit the diameter and height of the tins. Fill the containers by holding the divider in place and adding popcorn a handful at a time, alternating between the two flavors to keep divider from slipping.

  3. Step 3

    Finish with curled paper ribbon and gift tags.

    Popcorn tins ship really well, I sell them in my store, www.poptiquepopcorn.com. You just want to find a shipping box that is the right size or use some packing materials to make sure there is no wiggle room. Also, when shipping during the summer it's a good idea to use insulated shipping boxes with ice packs to make sure your popcorn doesn't get sticky.

    Thanks for the tip, RubiesSF! Good thinking!

    Guess I had too much text? Just sub www.marthastewart.com for preview.corp.mslo.com in the links. They'll work!

  • RubiesSF 4 Dec, 2008

    Seems the links have mslo.com instead of marthastewart.com in them!

    Try these two links:

  • RubiesSF 4 Dec, 2008

    The links refer to mslo instead of marthastewart.com.

    Try this link for the macadamia one: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.fc77a0dbc44dd1611...

    Can't wait til the recipe links work. Looks very tasty and fun to make! Thanks

    They sell tins like those pictured in the paint dept of Home Depot or Lowe's. They look just like a paint can with no label (they're silver). They could be decorated any way you like.

  • Sandyvdh 4 Dec, 2008

    Clicked on recipes (in blue) can't get them???

  • BakingBarrister 7 Nov, 2008

    I made the chocolate-Almo

  • abralw 19 Sep, 2008

    you can buy great containers for this (in plastic, metal tins, different sizes, etc.) and other food packaging (they have little circle tins perfect for fudge or bigger ones perfect for cookies, little fold up boxes with handles and peek-a-boo windows perfect for peppermint bark or fudge) for very reasonable prices at the container store.

    Drill holes in sides. Use hardware metal wire. Bend ends to secure after inserting in holes.

  • faith929luv 6 Sep, 2008

    If can't buy, Maybe make own tin. Use cookie containers

  • ruth1960 22 Dec, 2007

    I also could not open the link and wondered if someone would send me the recipes.

  • BakingBarrister 19 Dec, 2007

    Both the Caramel Corn and the Chocolate Almond Popcorn (in the archives) were a hit at Thanksgiving! I found great tins at the Container Store that kept it fresh for a week!

  • jamie667 18 Dec, 2007

    If you look up popcorn in the archives, both recipes are on the second page.

  • Leahslittleloves 17 Dec, 2007

    I can not open the links for either popcorns and I love this idea. Would someone send this to me please. Thanks you

  • deanna_munger 12 Dec, 2007

    Do they seal well? It's humid here.

  • AmeliaBedelia 4 Dec, 2007

    Yes! I found these at Michael's where Martha has her new scrapbooking line. However, they aren't found in that section--they're by the baking and candy making section. Merry Christmas!

  • MariBlackford 3 Dec, 2007

    Anybody find these tins? I've looked everywhere. Thanks
