Tic Tac® Big Pack Container Pattern

This is a little box I've had sitting around for a while, and just never posted. I've made these with snowman designs, with a peek-a-boo hole for white tic tacs to show through, and in halloween designs with a peek-a-boo hole for orange tic tacs to show through. Today I thought I'd make a dainty, flowery, spring-themed box...these are great purse gifts, and are easy projects to make for a class, or to sell at craft fairs.

TIPS:
1) You can punch peek-a-boo holes in the box for the tic tacs to show through, but you might need to fold a side or bottom flap in half to get your punch far enough in. And, if you do a peek-a-boo hole, use scratch paper to figure out where you want it before attempting it on your card stock box.
2) If there is a date stamp across the clear plastic tic tac container where you want the candies to show through, wipe some StazOn ink remover over the date stamp and it should come off easily with a paper towel.
3) Using velcro to close the box is ideal, as it is easy to open and refasten, and keeps the integrity of the box decoration. The box can also be refilled with a new container of tic tacs whenever necessary.
4) You'll want to use Sticky Strip to keep the box from falling apart--especially if it ends up in a purse!
