Need a Little Tic Tac…

While watching Sam McDonald’s video I was thinking how stinkin’ cute these were and that my stamping peeps would like to make these Tic Tac “books”  What I didn’t count on was the packaging in the UK must differ from the US because the measurements were not anything near the same.  It wasn’t that hard to re-figure the size and score lines and here’s what I came up with…

Isn’t it cute?  And here’s a shot of it opened…

The ribbon slips on and off to open the “book” and the band inside keeps the box from slipping out.  Want to give this Tic Tac Book a try?  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff:

  • Paper:  Cardstock and DSP of your choice.  Here I have used Pool Party Cardstock and High Tide DSP.
  • Ink:  Tangerine Tango or whatever matches your DSP
  • Stamps:  Regarding Dahlias (sentiment)
  • Tools and Embellishments:  5/8″ White Satin Ribbon, Itty Bitty Flower Punch, 1 1/2″ and 1 3/8″ Circle Punch

Digits:

  • Cut cardstock for book cover 3″ x 4 1/4″.  Score at 1 3/4″ and 2 1/2″.  Also cut from cardstock a 3/4″ x 7″ piece for the inside band.
  • Cut 2 pieces of DSP 2 7/8″ x 1 5/8″ for the front an back cover.
  • The outside spine DSP is 1 5/8″ x 2 7/8″.
  • Cut a piece of DSP to go on the inside band 5/8″ x 6 7/8″.
  • Cover the inside band with the DSP and wrap around Tic Tac box.  Adhere with glue dots and then with sticky strip to inside of book.
  • Attach all outside DSP with Snail.
  • Stamp sentiment and punch out.  Punch out larger circle and add to book front.
  • Punch and shape three Itty Bitty flowers with a tiny pearl and attach to front of book.

Was that easy or what?  Hope you found something to inspire you today to get your fingers inky.  I’ll be making these for several friends to enjoy.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”The curve of a smile can set things straight.”

Get Inky…Get Happy!
