'Tis the Season......

....for me to be so busy that I can't keep up with my blogging! Sorry about that, folks. I've made so many cute things, and then promptly mailed or gave them away, forgetting to take pictures before I did so. Sheesh. I'll try to be better in the next few weeks, but I'm not making any promises!

Well, this time I did remember, and have a cute little treat holder to show, and even a tutorial for it so you can whip some up and give them away! (Just don't forget to take a picture before you do!)

Isn't that just the cutest little gifty?  These would make perfect teacher or co-worker treats. Nothing too much (don't want to send the wrong impression), just a little sweet thing that says you remembered them at the holidays.

Here are the instructions:


Whisper White cardstock for box: 3¼" x 5⅜"
  1. With short side at guide on Simply Scored Tool, score at ⅝" and 2⅝".
  2. With long side at guide, score at ⅝", 2⅜", 3", and 4¾".
  3. Cut off tabs, as shown:
  4. Punch opening for candy with 1⅜" Circle Punch.
  5. Add Sticky Strip as shown, but don’t remove liner yet.
  6. Apply Sticky Strip to the inside of the three flaps surrounding the punched out circle - form into a box and adhere.
DSP for outer wrap (Old Olive DSP from Polka Dot Parade used here): 2" x 7¾"
  1. Score at ⅝", 2⅜", 3", 4¾", 5⅜", and 7⅛".
  2. Slide Artisan Label Punch in from short side as far as it will go, and punch window.
  3. Cut Window Sheet (acetate) 1⅝" x 1⅞" and adhere to inside of window with ⅛" sticky tape.
  4. Using ⅛" Circle Punch, punch holes for Organza Ribbon about ½" from each side of top.
  5. Remove liner of Sticky Strip on box and adhere outer wrap to box.
  6. Thread ribbon through holes and tie in a bow.
  7. Add a tag (Christmas Tagables stamped in Old Olive used here).
