TicTac Treat

I've been somewhat burned out on all of the Halloween ideas.  Because of this I haven't wanted to make anything new.  That was until this morning.  I was standing in the line at Walmart and I got the urge.  You know the urge, the one that prompts you to ditch all the other things on your to-do list and do something completely different?  Well, that urge hit and so this is what I made.

If you want to make your own, here's how to do it:

1- Buy a pack of Tictacs

2- Get some paper and wrap it around the package.  Then cut the paper down to size.  You want it barely larger on the ends than the box of TicTacs.  (The paper in the photo hasn't been cut down yet)

3-  Using a circle punch, punch a hole in the front  flap.

4 - Add a piece of ribbon that will run all the way across the black paper.  Keep in mind you need it long enough so it will tie the package closed.

5- Next you need to add the Tictacs and other inside decorations.  I just used some adhesive tabs to hold the treat in place.  Then I added a little note.  On the opposite side, which you can't see very good in the photo, I just placed another piece of black paper to hide the adhesive and ribbon.

6 - Now you just need to decorate the front, tie the bow and you are done.  You'll end up with something that looks like this when you are done.

The really cool thing about this little idea is you can adapt it to other things too.  Here's one I made a few years back for a crop I helped host at a friends Scrapbook store.
