Snowman Tic Tac Guts – with Free File!

Need a Christmas favor perfect for school teachers, co-workers, neighbors and the handsome Fed Ex driver who brings you packages from KNK USA?  These thoughtful Tic Tac mints are sure to be well received.

I calculated the sizing needed for my Tic Tac cover by simply tracing the Tic Tac container onto my printed paper.  I wrapped the paper around my mints and once I was sure about the sizing I needed, I created a rectangle with rounded corners in my KNK Software. I then made little notches on my shape so it would know exactly where my score lines need to be… this is a very helpful thing you can do if you plan on assembling several! 

I created this snowman file by welding circles and rectangles together.   Next I used the transform inline function to create an inline mat for my shape.  I then separated the snowman image from the inline mat and began creating the three swirls.  I did this by manipulating and adding nodes to this shape. It may take you a few tries the first time, but the more you practice the faster you will get and the easier it becomes.

Next I placed my snowman with the interior mat onto the rectangle with rounded corners I created and then added a circle onto my shape so his “Snowman Tic Tac Guts” would be visible.

I keep my 15″ KNK Maxx settings at Overcut 15 & Trailing Blade 20 because I only use my machine to cut paper.
