mints as a wedding favor idea. Tic Tac's goal is to "Shake Things Up", and I was thrilled when they asked me to come up with a fun packaging idea for a wedding favor!
Tic Tac® packs remind me confetti, little colored sprinkles, perfect for weddings. So I wanted a modern vibe for the packaging, something that would be meaningful for a wedding, but also add a modern/funky twist to shake thing up ;)
Naturally, I turned to printables. And glitter. 'Cause if you can't have a bit of bling on your wedding day...when can ya?!
Tic Tac® DIY Wedding Favor Idea with Free Printables
The design I created play on the "Mint to Be" words in reference to the Tic Tac® mints, so I wanted the contents to be visible, so I created a wrap around label.
The idea is that you can easily wrap around a box of Tic Tac® without having to remove the original labels on the box. I used white Tic Tac® mints, wintergreen and strawberry fields flavors for their pink, white and mint green colors. Pretty quick and easy to re-create for any wedding theme or color scheme.
You can leave the glitter out, but I totally recommend it! It was real quick too - Simply use a small paintbrush and craft glue to apply a very thin layer on the printables. Shake some glitter on top and let it dry.
The printable labels are also editable, so you can add your own wedding date, name and or message to suit your own wedding style.
Wrap around the box and secure with double-sided tape at the back. Top with a glitter heart and voila!
