Mini Tic Tac holders including tutorial!!

Here are my latest creations.
They are mini Tic Tac Holders for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Here they are "closed."
This is how they look when you pull on the ribbon to pull out the Tic Tacs.
Since I needed to make a number of them, I first started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that was 4-1/4" by 11" and scored it at:
  • 1-3/8"
  • 2"
  • 3-3/8"
  • 4"

Then, you cut the cardstock at each 2-1/4" and you can get 4 per piece of cardstock.
Punch a circle in the center on both of the wider parts of the holder.
Fold along all the score lines to form the holder.
Place adhesive on the smallest tab of the holder, and fold flat.  I used Tear and Tape adhesive.
Put it together to form the holder.  It should look like this:
Cut a piece of ribbon that is 9 inches long and thread it through the holes, and line up the ends to match, so they are the same length.
Then, place the Tic Tacs and push it into the holder as it pushes the ribbon down.
Looking from the top, it should look like this:
Then, tie the ribbon, either like a knot in the picture, or you can tie a bow if you wish.  Add some Washi Tape to the bottom of the holder. Then, stamp a small image, then punch it out with the 1-3/8" punch, and attach it using a Stampin' Dimensional.
This is how all three look opened:
 This is how they look "closed."
Thank you for checking in!
