I’ve been wanting to make these for a while, I have seen a few on pinterest but never got round to trying them for myself, and the ones I have seen had the tic tacs glued in place. I wanted to be able to replace the tic tacs when empty so got my ruler, a pen and paper and of course a pack of the tic tacs and this is what I came up with.
I think I had better explain this first, the first one I made I used the new Pop of Pink DSP and Melon Mambo ink. This was my practice one and I needed to make another to take the photos for this tutorial. I wanted to use one of the new in colours Dapper Denim but as yet I don’t have a matching Designer Series Paper I could use. In the Pop of Pink set it has some lovely black and white papers, so I cut a piece of this and using a Stamping Sponge lightly coloured over it with the Dapper Denim Ink, I left some undone on the photo to show you before and after. Combined with the Dapper Denim Card it worked really well.
I then cut the pieces I needed as follows:
Cut your pieces as above, here is the metric conversions:
4 1/8″ x 2 7/8″ (10.5cm x 7.5cm) – 1 5/8″ x2 3/4″ (4cm x 7cm) – 2 3/4″ x 1/2″ (7cm x 1.3cm)
Round the corners as shown, adhere the DSP to the back and middle of front of card, and the inside left. Cut a piece of ribbon about 14″ (35cm) and attach to the front as shown
Stamp your chosen image/phrase, I have used another new one from the Layering Love stamp set, I thought it was perfect for this project. I also added a couple of little hearts from the same set.
Distress the edges with the Dapper Denim ink, add dimentionals to the back and attach to the front over the ribbon.
Cut a piece of card 5″ x 1/2″ (13cm x 1.5cm), wrap it snugly round the middle of the tic tac’s and glue shut, hold till a strong bond has been achieved making sure not to stick it to the tic tac container. Now add some glue to the back of the card as shown and carefully glue into the holder, carefully remove tic tac container and leave till glue is stuck firmly before replacing the tic tacs into the holder. Tie ribbon into a nice bow and your done, a lovely little gift for someone you care about.
You get a better view of the two designs from the new Pop of Pink DSP above, but there are 12 gorgeous designs in the pack. This will be available from the 1st June, but there are lots of lovely papers still available but that are retiring on the 31st of May, some of them are reduced too. Click on Shop Now above to go to my shop and have a look through them, I have stocked up on a few that I like so I don’t miss out on them when they have retired for good.
I hope you like my project, I will be doing some more designs for these soon to suit children, men, christmas, wedding etc. If there is any occasion/person you would like me to try to design one for, comment below and I will do my best to come up with something for you.
