Tic Tac® Howl-o-ween Creeps

Just a quick post to share a little Halloween treat project. These are Tic Tac containers in little boxes, decorated with the Howl-o-ween Creeps stamp set. I limited myself just to the images in the stamp set. The top has to open up so the recipient can open the Tic Tac container, so the Frankenstein and Witch images are adhered to the flap, then they secure the box closed with a little Velcro dot underneath. The ribbon, greeting, and the peekaboo hole in the back are all just little extras...you could easily leave those off to create these in bulk, but they wouldn't be as cute!





The pictures are all the same two treat boxes, just different views of the back and front of each. I used the orange flavor and the spearmint flavor Tic Tacs inside, because they are probably the easiest to find. There are some wintergreen ones that are a little lighter green, which would also work great. Please see the link below for the pattern, and see this related post for more tips and suggestions. For example, I removed the date stamp from the Tic Tac container with StazOn Cleaner so the markings would not show through the peekaboo hole.
