I love making these cute little treats for my friends. I think that Valentine’s Day should be about celebrating the love we have for our friends (in addition to romantic love, of course). These are quick, easy and adorable. The perfect little gift to let friends know you’re thinking of them.And they’d be great project to do with kids. And child old enough to stick a sticker down or glue a cut-out can help with this craft.
Choose any flavor or red or pink Tic Tacs.
If you want to use white Tic Tacs, just change the color of the card stock to red or pink.
Cut a piece of card stock that will cover the box of Tic Tacs like a book cover. I just eyeball the dimensions.
Using a circle punch, punch a hole out near the bottom of the front “cover” of your paper. You want the hole to be low enough that none of the Tic Tac label will show, only Tic Tacs will be visible.
Use double-stick tape or glue dots to attach a piece of ribbon about 1/3 of the way down the paper and all the way across. You’ll use this to tie the cover shut. Then using the double-stick tape or glue dots, attach the Tic Tac box to the back of the cover.
Punch hearts out of red and pink paper and attach to the cover. You can also use decorative Valentine’s themed paper or stickers r to decorate the top portion of the cover. Tie the ribbon in a small bow (this is the hardest part of the project) and you’re done.
It’s a fun project to do with kids. Even young children can do most of this project with just a little help.
It takes just a little longer to make these treats than it took for you to read this. Truly a quick, easy and adorable project.
