i'm somewhat addicted to orange tic tacs and i have quite a few boxes around...anyone have any ideas?
i've been looking at some other posts about them but none of them really sparked my inerest...i was wondering if it's possible to melt them and use them to make other things? if so what? Huh

there's plastic on the furniture to keep it neat and clean,
in the pine sol-scented air, somewhere that's green...

When I used to run track in grade school, I used the tic tac containers to hold jewelry, earrings, rings, etc... and could throw it in a duffle bag without having loose jewelry floating around.

So what makes you happy.
Be with who makes you smile.

Love as long as you live.

I recently faced the same problem as you - too many tic tac boxes!! love those orange ones, too! But one day I looked at one, and I got an idea. I have layered hair, so I use lots of bobby pins to keep it in place. And there's always one little piece of hair that needs a pin, so... TIC TAC HAIRPIN CASE! The boxes are just the right size for the little pins. I took the little label off and pasted little pictures all over it, and then used decoupage to seal it. (So cute!) I had to use an exacto knife to cut it so the little lid would open though. I keep my little box in my purse, so it's always handy. You could also use it to store toothpicks or other mints. It's also nice to have a little box in case you loose an earring back, or break a clasp on jewelry. Hope this inspires you!  Grin

you guys all have great ideas, but they're not really helping me...

jewelry holder: good idea, but my jewelry is all too huge and plastic. it wouldn't fit.     

hairpin box: as well as my jewelry, my hair is huge also. if i put bobby pins, or pretty much anything in it, it gets lost and isn't seen for a few weeks.

thanks for your help anyway, if either of these worked for me i would do them! especially the decoupage, that's neat! i appreciate your suggestions!

I glued some heavy duty magnets on the back of one and put a preserved a comic cut down to that size in it in front of a piece of styro. cut to size.  Would have been great but I made the mistake of spraying the comic with krylon and it kind of bled through...I am going to try again though!  You can also cut photos down to that size and pad the back to make them flush in the tic-tac box.  Lots of ideas are coming to mind now!  TishaLee

Whose bright idea was this anyway?  I said burn all your bridges, not blow them up!  Jeez!

if you sew, it would be a great place to store needles/pins.
