This year I decided to put them in boxes with the intention of people scattering them on their festive table as after dinner mints.
I’ve made up my Sizzix Bigz XL Box No. 3 in plain white linen card. It’s a very simple box to put together and as you can see it’s also quite a substantial size. http://www.sizzix.com/product/656278/sizzix-bigz-xl-die-box-3. I wish, perhaps, I’d used a coloured or fancier card ….. but I will confess that I’ve had a whole stack of these boxes cut out for over two years now and thought I’d best use a few of them before cutting up new stuff! The tag is a leftover from last year - http://itsallfiddlefart.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/snowman-tags.html
….. and silver sentiment circles from CraftWork Cards, backed on red on the other side (Product Code: 03 006 000 23)
So that’s Elizabeth Shaw mints done for another year ….. all I can say is look out Valentines Day, here I come!!
I have found that the best price to get these mints is BM Bargains as I prefer the milk ones. A box there usually costs £1.99. Finding them in the supermarket is generally a bit hit and miss but they usually cost about £3.69 a box, unless they are on BOGOF. When I see them in BM Bargains I always check the best before date first (these were August 2014) and then stock up!
