Candy Treat Tubes

These Candy Treat Tubes were really simple to make - measurements at the bottom of this posting. The tubes are 3" x 5/8" Plastic Tubes long and can be found at a local floral supply store. Tie a co-ordinating ribbon around the top and adhere a punched circle on top. These particular tubes are only about 1/2" wide inside. They are filled with Breath Mints and Chocolate Sunflower Seeds. (Note: M&M's and Skittles are too big). Finished project size is 1-1/2" x 5".

Here they are all lined up:

Side view:

Back view of the treat holders: Finish the back with a scallop circle, too.

Here are some close-ups of the treats: Stamp the "Batty for You" messages twice: once in one color and once in another color. Alternate the punching: use the 1-3/8" Punch and the 1" Punch to achieve the 2 colors. Pop with a dimensional. Depending on the size of your tubes, punch a co-ordinating color circle.

(1) 1-1/2" x 8" Solid CS
