Holiday Treats

These are a variety of Treat Holders for the Holidays. Inside are Hershey Chocolate kisses. The treat holders are simple and quick and very easy to make (see details below in this post):

This was the original treat holder made from a recent shoebox event (5-1/2" long): Use the Sweet Swirl standard wheel in real red ink. Punch a Vellum Card Stock Snowflake and use the Large Oval punch for the message. Attach snowflake and message using dimensionals. Finish off with a single knot striped grosgrain ribbon. Easy! This size holds 6 Chocolate kisses.

Another version (5-1/2' long): LOVE that SU Exclusive Petals-a-Plenty Embossing folder used for this one. Scallop punch in Old Olive CS. Stamp the Pointsetta, cut and adhere to scallop circle using a dimensional. Summer Sun 1/8" Circles are adhered using Tombow adhesive to the Pointsetta center. The Modern Label Punched tag is simply slipped under the single knotted grosgrain ribbon.

My favorite version is using this exclusive FLOCKED designer paper that is only available starting September 1! This flocked paper is so cool and I love it! Ever seen a Old Olive snowflake? Here's one behind the message which is positioned in the center of the treat holder using dimenstionals on top of the punched snowflake. The old olive grosgrain ribbon is the finishing touch. This version is 5-1/2" long and also holds 6 Chocolate kisses.

Smaller version below is so cute (3" long)! This treat holder is also part of the specialty designer paper (soon to be available). Love that new snowflake punch. White taffeta ribbon is used for this treat holder along with a rhinestone brad. Attach to the ribbon with a mini glue dot............cute! This version holds 3 Chocolate kisses.

Here's another small version (3-3/4" long) with scallop edges both on the solid Real Red CS as well as on that great Designer Paper. A flat back pearl is in the center of the embossed snowflake. This version holds 4 Chocolate kisses.

To make the "standard" size treat holder: 5-1/2" long
(1) 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" CS
if using Score-pal: score 1-1/4", 2-1/4", 3-1/2"
To make the smaller treat holder versions, adjust length but keep width 4-1/4"
Tip: Add adhesive along the entire bottom of the treat holder to prevent the Chocolate kisses from falling out
