Tools and Materials


  1. Download our PDF files ("Mint to Be" and "A Breath of Fresh Air") and replace the placeholder text with your own (you only need to do this in one box; the form will automatically fill in the rest). Print the "Mint to Be" text on card stock and the "A Breath of Fresh Air" on vellum paper. Each sheet of card stock and vellum yields three labels.
  2. Use a craft knife and metal ruler to cut between the crop marks (do not cut all the way to the edges of the paper; this will leave the crop marks intact around all the edges to guide subsequent cuts).
  3. Line tins with "A Breath of Fresh Air" liners, fill with mints, and close.
  4. Wrap "Mint to Be" labels around each, and secure with double-sided tape.

I have to let you know about 20 mints fit in a one tin!

This appears to be set up for using a whole pile of ink in order to have the text in white. I wish we could alter the layout so that we could change the color of the text so as to be able to print on colored paper. It would save a LOT of ink.

I have the tins and not the mints yet. How many fit in the tins? The tins were smaller than I anticipated...I wish I would have got the next size up

Has anyone done the mint-to be's tins? I ordered the mints and they are really large and I wonder how many will fit into the tins? I have not gotten the tins yet, they have been ordered.
