Jars of Tic Tacs

As I was cleaning off my disastrous stamping space today, I found the tic tac's we bought last weekend for this very project!  Yay!

These are so easy to make and so much fun to give and with the fruit flavored tic tac's they are even prettier.

Recipe -
Whisper White Card Stock (not thick) 4 3/4" x 3" - with the long side across the top of your Stampin' Score - score at 2" and 2 3/4"

Designer Series Paper - 4 1/2" x 2 3/4" - score at 1 7/8" and 2 5/8"

Use your corner rounder on all four corners.

I chose the Designer Series Paper Stack - Melon Mambo dots on the inside / words on the outside

On the outside 2 3/4" x 1 5/8"- use corner rounder on just the right side.

Stamp the medium sized jar and the lid from Jar of Love with Smoky Slate.  Stamp FOR YOU with Rose Red and punch a 1" circle as far down on the jar as you can (otherwise you will get the tic tack label showing through).

Place the jar onto the outside DSP and draw the circle onto the DSP so you know where to punch.

Attach the ribbon to the spite of the DSP and attach to the spine of the Whisper White.  Carefully mark the circle onto this DSP so you know where to punch (again).

Using Liquid Tombo attach the DSP to the inside of the Whisper White.

Attach the jar to the front and attach the lid with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Tie the ribbon into a bow and ta-da!

Here's to another week!  Happy Monday!  ~ Donna

  1. I LOVE THIS!!!! I was looking at the little Tic Tack display at the store and thinking oh what fun colors and flavors - I wonder if the heat would melt these? Can you see me taking my card swatches to Walmart and trying to see which box of Tic Tacks look the best with which cardstock!?! Your directions look like you could make this quite fast but being careful on where to punch the holes! Just think of what papers and ribbons you could use. I wonder if the little jar from the set a few years ago would work as I don't have the new set to use the medium size. Good excuse that I need this new set, huh?

    1. I think you like this one!!! :) It was pretty easy to make, but like you said, the punching is tedious, but so worth it.

      I think the old jar would fit, it is worth a try. Then if not, get the new set! It is SOOOO packed with things to make. You'll love it!

  2. Love this! Perfect teacher gifts! Thanks for the instructions to make this!

  3. Found this cute little design and I'm going to be making 60 of them for my sister to give yo her lawn bowls group. Thank you for sharing your idea, I love it!

    1. Hi Maureen! I'm so glad you found this and like it so much. SIXTY of them, wow! You'll be busy for a while! Your sister will really appreciate your work.
