I happen to have family members that eat Altoids like they were candy (hey, wait...) and they save the tins for me. This explains my obsessive need to make stuff out of them. I'm currently working on plans for an outdoor fire pit...surely I have enough, right?
However, if you don't happen to have Altoid-aholics living among you, these labels are perfect for an actual full tin of mints. Just a little something from you to the ladies in the office who make our lives so much easier. Here's a little glimpse of the finished product.
Xyron machine (my loyal readers will remember that I have a serious craft crush on that thing) but if you don't have a Xyron, try a tape runner like this that you can pick up in any craft store or double sided tape. I haven't tried glue stick, but in my experience, it's not the best. You can also try to print them on self adhesive paper like this. I'm not a mod podge chick, but you can certainly give that a whirl if you are so inclined.
Another tip: Print them on regular copy paper, not card stock. The heavier the paper, the harder it will be to get the edges to stick down. I made labels to match the spearmint and wintergreen flavors. The traditional red just wasn't doing it for me.
