Tic Tacs Anyone?

I continue to be in project mode...hope you don't mind! Well, hubby came home with his favorite Orange Tic Tacs and White minty ones for me. Lightbulb... orange, halloween... white, snow and here you go (sorry for the rhyme :)I made up a little template for myself to make a cute holiday holder for Tic Tacs. Great favors, treats or stocking stuffers. Dimensions: 4 1/2 x 3, scored at 1 7/8 from each side (to kreate a spine) Happy Harvest, sentiment from Loads of Love Accessories, is inked in Pumpkin Pie Craft ink and Clear Embossed on Apricot Appeal. The edges of Apricot Appeal are sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink and a Corner Rounder Punch finishes off the corners. The pumpkin is from a retired set, but a great alternative is the current Autumn Harvest. The Apricot Appeal is layered on a Tangerine Tango 'holder'. I used my 1/2" Circle Punch in the middle of my pumpkin to peek at the little orange tic tacs :) A Mellow Moss Grosgrain Ribbon keeps the holder closed.
The 'winter' holder is kreated with the snowman from the Deer Friends, hostess lev 2, set. I used my Markers to color him in, huffed to remoisten and stamped on Winter White. The little 'snowflakes' are from the Priceless set, stamped in Baja Breeze ink and gone over with a VersaMarker and embossed with Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder. Edges sponged in Baja Breeze and Corner Rounder Punch again finishes off these corners. A 1" Circle Punch kreates my snowmans 'belly' filled with tic tacs :) And finally a White Grosgrain Ribbon as a closure. Cute right??? If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Leave me a comment and let me know what ya think!
For now, go kreate

I've seen these before, but yours are way cuter! Good idea with the orange ones for Halloween. You could also do red ones for V-day! You are creative as always Kim.
