And here’s what fits inside:

I followed Nadine Höbrich’s tutorial for a mini Tic-Tac box and had a happy surprise when I figured out that 4 Andes Mints fit in this box perfectly! I’ve wanted to design a project for Andes Mints for a long time and this one fit the bill!

Here’s my video tutorial:

  1. Hello Julie: My name is Maria Rodriguez, I found your amazing blog through Mary Fish, who has been my SU demonstrator for over 10 years.
    I don’t recall the first time I saw one of your videos, but I was instantly in love with your creativity and talent, your cheery disposition and your generosity sharing what you love in your videos for all of us to see.
    I’ve had some troubles with Blogger for sometime now, where my comments don’t get posted on some blogs I follow so, my granddaughter told me of one of her friends who knows the twists and turns of the Internet and she came to help me debug my computer and now it’s working a bit smoother.
    I really hope you see this comment about this incredibly sweet little box, I love it and it’s just so perfect for these sweet chocolate treats.
    Thank you again for all your fantastic videos, I sure appreciate your talent and creativity and I’m grateful you share it with us.

    Sending love and hugs.
    Maria Rodriguez.

  2. Julie, I love little projects as I do a lot of Thank You gifts for my son in law, customers. I’m already in the process of making these!! Thanks for another great project.

  3. Help! All of my lids are too small for the box bottoms. I know how to measure – I’m a math teacher. Why are they too small? Ideas on adjustments? Or should i just buy a new paper cutter?

  4. I have the same problem with the lids. I have tried 10 times … trying all different ways.. Is it me …or are the directions not quite right.. There is a small error somewhere. I wish I could make correctly. Sorry..

    Thanks.. If you could give me any help.
