Yesterday I decided to purchase Tic-Tacs in order to send my son, daughter, and son-in-law mailable. "Easter Baskets". By the time I figured out what to do, they turned into "Easter Fake Magazine Holders", but I've done nothing for so many years that I wanted to do...something.
To begin, I peeled the labels from three different colored Tic-Tac containers and poured their contents into a bowl to mix up the colors. After refilling them, I scoured my CTMH Cricut cartridges to see what would work to turn them into something darling so I could participate in this weeks Heart 2 Heart challenge.
The flowers were cut from Art Philosophy (p. 29) but, since they were cut for a different project, I don't know the exact size. I used a 1/2" hole punch for the centers and accented them by running a marker along the edges. I popped the flowers up on foam tape. It's not like it will cost me extra to mail at this point. I'll put them in small, bubble wrap mailers and not have to worry that the flowers will lose their dimension.
Had there not been leftover flowers sitting on my desk, I would have gone with small egg shapes and used the Washi tape to decorate them. I could have wrapped ribbon around the containers. My boys will just have to put up with flowers this year. At least they're getting something!
Until next time,
