Treat holders

Good morning!
I have a cute little treat holder to share with you today!  These are perfect for a mini candy bar or any other little treat that you can fit in the pocket!  My treat holder is for Winter and I chose to put a tube of Lip Balm in it.  It's the perfect little gift for the upcoming Winter season!

I made a few other treat holders as well but when I went to fill the little pockets last night- it seems as though someone in my household decided to eat my contents!  Those pictures will have to be shared another day!

Would you like to make a treat holder of your own? Here are the instructions:

Chalk Talk Candy Holder

Cut your choice of  DSP to 2-1/2” x 5-1/2”.  Score at 3-1/2”

Cut your choice of card stock to 2-3/8” x 3-5/8”

6” Basic Black Chevron ribbon (substitute your color choice)

5” White Baker’s Twine

9” 1/8” Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain (substitute your color choice)

1.      Fold DSP on the score line and place just inside the cutting line of the Chalk Talk Framelit.

2.      Use the Scallop Border Punch on the pocket side.

3.      Adhere the top and bottom of the DSP to the card stock leaving room for the ribbon to slide underneath.

4.      Place candy in the pocket and tie ribbon attaching the little tag.

5.      Slide a Mini Glue Dot behind the ribbon against the card stock if needed.

6.      Embellish with a jewel on the exclamation point.

7.      Trim the corners of the card stock to match the Chalk Talk Framelit.

8.      Punch 1/4” hole in top of candy holder.

9.      Slide ribbon through the hole and pull both sides to the top.  Use the Baker’s Twine to tie the ribbons closed.  Trim ends.

A special THANKS to  my fabulous upline Becky Roberts for allowing me to share her tutorial!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
