shoebox swap - part 2

Good morning! I have another project from the "shoebox swap" to share today. My upline had this adorable treat holder for us, and I tweaked mine a little bit, adding some Sweater Trim to tie the holder closed.
These are so quick and easy to make! They would be great for Secret Santa gifts, as well as for teachers, mail carriers, hair stylists, and of course the UPS guy that delivers all your favorite stampin' goodies!  ;)
When you open the treat holder, there's a little pocket inside that will hold a tea bag or small chocolate square. Here's how simple this is to create: 
Start with a 3-1/2 x 11" piece of card stock. Use your Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score at 3-1/2", 4", and 7-1/2". Put the Diagonal Plate in place, and score diagonally at 7-1/2". Cut along the diagonal score line to remove the top-right triangle section. 
Fold at each score line. Add a strong adhesive (I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue) along the bottom edge of the triangular section, and fold over to create a little pocket. Then... decorate! 
You can simply fold it closed, but if you want ribbon, add that to your project before adding the focal point on the front. If you want a super fast way to decorate the front, one of the designs in the Snow Festival DSP is a sheet of 16 squares. They are perfect for making quick projects and gift tags. With two sheets in the package, you have 32 treat-holder "fronts" right at your fingertips.  :} 
I know you'll have fun making these cute treat holders. Start now so you can make a bunch!

Pin It!
