WWC36 Special 3D Challenge

For Watercooler Wednesday our challenge was to create something 3D. We have quite a selection this week as that was the only criteria. I love it when everyone gets to just be free and fly. As you will see below, I am in a funny mood. Here are a few inspirational quotes:

Every journey begins with a single tic tac.

We do not remember days, we remember tic tacs.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, 
concentrate the mind on tic tacs.

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 
"What are doing with your tic tacs?

One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as a tic tac.

My apologies to the the original quotes and quoters.

Anywho ... maybe by now you have guessed that my project this week has something to do with tic
tac candies. Do you remember any old commercials for them? One is, "Put a tic tac in your mouth
and get a bang out of life."

My project today is a little holder for a container of tic tacs. There must be several different sizes out there because I've seen a few different holders but they all have measurements that don't fit the smaller container I have. After looking at a few ideas, namely Kate Morgan and Sam Donald, I developed my own measurements. Kate's has closer measurements to the large holder I made. I went to the store to get more of the smaller containers, and only found the larger ones. You can make them up to give out to the kiddies who grace your door this Hallowe'en, give as thank you gifts to your card class members, or place them in the Christmas stockings. Just change what products you use.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this simple little 3D item. Do add it to your files. You never know when a little container of tic tacs could make someone's day.

Now, if you are so inclined, travel over to the challenge site:  HERE -- view the other 3D items, then create and upload one of yours. Sure would be nice to hear you've won!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
