Stampin' Up Garden in Bloom Flower Fair Botanicals Mini Tic Tac Slider Project

Phew...The Stampin' Up Retired List came out yesterday!  I shed a few tears (how about a lot of tears) for some of the products retiring.  I was quite surprised at a lot of the punches being retired especially the Bird Builder Punch and the Circle Punches.  And, Crystal Effects; all I can say is Oh No!

Anyways, Stampin' Up had some troubles with their Web Site yesterday and I couldn't get my order placed until this morning.  With all the International and U.S. trying to get on to SU's site, I'm sure they would have some issues.

AND, I got to preview the new Stampin' Up 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  Woo Hoo!  Lots of new dies, embossing folders, paper and some seriously amazing new stamp sets.  I just can't wait to pre-order!!!

Today, I have a Simple, Inexpensive and Quick project to share with you.  It's called a Mini Tic Tac Slider.

There are several video's on the internet showing how to make this project.  I followed the very talented fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Erica Cerwin, and her video.

Let's take a look:

 You can find the Mini Tic Tac's at the Dollar Tree stores.  There are 3 to a pack for $1.


I used Stampin' Up's Botanical Builder Framelits Die's to embellish my sleeves for the Tic Tac Holders.  AND, I'M SO HAPPY that the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies are being carried over to the new SU 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  Yippee Skippy!!!

I die cut two of the medium size flowers and trimmed out one of the petals and made them into butterflies.

Using SU's Silver Metallic Thread, I tied it around the butterfly for antennae.

This is an excellent project to use up scraps of ribbon and paper.  I took a small scrap of SU's 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and pulled out all of the Summer Starfruit (Retired) threads and adhered the piece along the leaf stem.

The 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Bermuda Bay, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake are now on the Retired List that came out yesterday.

I die cut the long fern leaf and another flower from SU's Botanical Builders Framelits Dies and adhered them to my Tic Tac Sleeve with SU Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I used SU's Silver Cording to tie around the butterfly for antennae.

I punched the leaf stem from SU's Bird Builder Punch (OH NO - It's on the Retired List).  Boo Hoo!!!

The other leaves were die cut from SU's Flower Fair Framelits Dies.

I die cut the Largest and the Medium flowers from SU's Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and trimmed out one of the petals to make them into butterflies.

I used SU's Thick White Bakers Twine to tie off my ribbon (Retired).

I stamped the butterfly from SU's Garden in Bloom and fussy cut them out.  I used two of the leaves from Flower Fair Framelits Dies and adhered them to my Tic Tac sleeve with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Another Boo Hoo - the 1" Watermelon Wonder Ribbon and the 1" Dotted Lace Ribbons are on the Retired List.

The Gold and the White Glitter Ribbons were in the Clearance Rack and sold out already!

 I tucked a piece of scrap ribbon behind my leaves with a rolled up glue dot.

I used SU's Gold Cording for my butterflies antennae and to tie off my ribbon.

Here is what the slider looks like.  The sleeve that goes around the Tic Tac container is so simple to make:

Cardstock - 2-1/4" x 4"
Score at 1-3/8" - 1-7/8" - 3-1/4" - 3-3/4"
Fold your score lines
Put Tear & Tape on the 1/4"end of cardstock
Remove your backing from your tape
Fold over and adhere

That is just way too easy!

Then, you just wrap a piece of ribbon around the Tic Tac Container and tie it off with bakers twine, cording or anything you would like.

These guys are just way too cute!  Make them and give them away as gifts.  My Friends just loved them!!!  They are an awesome size to keep in your purse too!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!

If you are interested in purchasing Stampin' Up products, you can order from me on-line at and please choose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator.



This is my first blog and it is still under construction.  I have yet to receive my Watermark so the picture's are copyright Lynn A. Gauthier, 2015-2016 Stampin' Up.
