Repurposed TicTac Boxes for Travel Spices

When we go camping in the summer, we like to cook and eat well.  For us, this means being sure that we have all of the spices and seasonings that we would be using if we were at home.  Space is always an issue though, so we try to use compact and easily packable containers for everything.  It occurred to me one day that this...

could easily be turned into this...

I love repurposing containers and the TicTac boxes are perfect for spices when you're on the go.  For us, this usually means camping, but this would also be a great solution for folks who stay in vacation condos with kitchens or motor homes and travel trailers.  So, save 'em if ya got 'em!

Where did you get the new labels or what did you use to create them? Thanks!

We use 250 ml(845 US fl oz) for our spice jars. Stop at a wholesale place and pick up 1 kg(35.27 oz) at a time for refills. On cannot have enough spices. That’s what we use.

Any Idea where to get the empty boxes?

Good evening,

I work on the photo department of the Notre Temps magaziner. We realize a subject on the arrangements of boxes of spices and we spotted one examples of recycling of boxes " Tic Tac " in arrangement of spices. We are very interested in this photo and I would want to know if this photo is available and which the sourceto get back this photo high definition and which are copyright ?

Do not hesitate to send me an e-mail for any additional information.

Best Regards.

What size label did you use? I found Oxyclean takes the labels off pretty good. Just soak in warm water for awhile, they should rub of fairly easy.

Remove any labels that have sticky glue, by first warming label from edge with a hair blow-dryer. Once edge is pulled back, continue gradually loosening with blow dryer until you can pull label completely off. There will be a sticky glue residue left on container. Hold container with a clean paper towel, and spray it with a few squirts of WD-40. rub with paper towel to remove glue residue. You may need repeat. When most glue is off, squirt a little undiluted liquid hand -wash dish soap on project and wipe. You may need to repeat with a fresh paper towel.. Toss the gunky paper towel and finish by washing container with diluted dish soap and clean paper towel. Works every time!

I love this idea, but how did you clean the labels off…I was having a terrible time trying to get them cleaned off.
