  1.  Enjoy the Tic Tac sweets! We like yellow so we chose mango flavour. For a transparent box pick mint flavor and a bright orange box, orange flavor.
  2. Clean your tic tac box We filled the box with water and let it dip it in a bowl of water to allow the sticker to come off easier.
  3. Remove traces of glue We use aftercare wipes that comes along with store-bought wax strips (Nair) to remove the stubborn traces of glue. Mineral/baby oil should work too.
  4. Keep your pins in it. Now it’s time to fill it with pins!
  5. Wrap a hair-tie If you like, you can also wrap a hair tie around it.

We like how it’s small and light enough to keep it in a bag! Now we don’t simply chuck those pins and ties into our bags and dig into our bags to look for them anymore.
