I am always looking for ideas for homemade ornaments. I love this one, but where did you buy the tart tins and what size are they? Thanks.

I am not sure where Michele got the tins, but I know you can purchase a three tin set (assorted sizes) from Jenni Bowlin. I bought mine from Eclecticpaperie.com

Sorry for my delayed response! I actually found them at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. They come in 3 sizes there. I bought the ones that are 2 1/2". I also bought smaller, 1" ones that I am planning on playing with soon! : ) I am sure any baking type place would have them though.

Hi Suzanne,
I know it's a JustRite Stampers set, but I think it's retired. Sorry!
