There are so many excuses in life to give a small gift to let someone know you’re thinking of them. I love to watch that person’s face light up knowing that I care and want to let them know. With this being breast cancer awareness month, it’s the perfect occassion to let the women in your life know you care and support them. I wanted to share this small gift idea that would be a perfect gift for those special women in your life.
This is such an easy gift to make that you’ll want to make a bunch to have ready to give to lots of friends.
You’ll need pink Tic Tacs, decorative paper, a paper punch (I used a flower, but you can use any shape that will fit the width of the box), coordinating ribbon and double-stick tape. This is the perfect project to use up your paper and ribbon scraps.
Cut your paper to fit your Tic Tac box like a book cover. I just eyeball it, but it’s approximately 4 1/8 by 2 7/8 inches. Punch a hole in the bottom front of the cover so that the Tic Tacs will show through. Add double-stick tape to the back cover to hold the Tic Tac box in place and in a line along the middle to hold the ribbon.
You’ll want to use extra sticky tape to hold the ribbon in place or you’ll have to keep pressing the front cover back into place (ask me how I know). Embellish the front with a saying or any way you want. I wanted to make a girl power statement, so I did.
