Wicked Challenge #3 Candy Cradle

This is the 3rd and last Wicked Challenge #WKD1209C being posted on the Split Coast Stampers site that I am histing. This Candy Cradle treat holder is the most simplest to make using a SU Bog Shot Scallop Square Die and a Punch............It took less than 10 minutes to make. This treat is filled with those Gold Ball Candies but a Package of Rolos, or Necco Wafers or even a Granola Bar would easily fit, too.
Candy treat exposed:


Here's how to make this Candy Cradle:
(1) Scallop Square in Chocolate Chip CS
(1) 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" Real Red CS
(1) 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" Christmas Cocoa DSP
(1) message, punch using scallop oval punch. Add dimensionals to pop up.

Pierce the scallops:

Using your hands, curl each layer of the the paper diagonally as shown:

Use the Horizontal Slot Punch through each corner of scallop square.

Thread 7" long 1-1/4" Chocolate Chip striped Ribbon through the horizontal slots. Tighten the 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain with both the the 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon (7" long) and the Silver Elastic Cord (7" long). Place Striped Candy in the cradle. Position message at the top, underneath the tied ribbon. You're done!!!

I love it and they would be cute all over my little 2 foot, Roscoe (the Christmas tree and a lot of other things eating dog) proof tree. I will be making these. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.
