12 days of Christmas {projects} - day 11

Christmas Project #11
Candy Hugs & Kisses Treat Holder

Here's a simple little treat holder you can pull together really quick and you don't need much on hand. Sometimes when I'm searching for treat holder ideas on different blogs and websites, I just want something simple and quick that doesn't use a lot of dies, punches, etc. This one will do the trick and you can decorate the front however you'd like!

Start with a piece of Real Red card stock 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" (you can get three of these treat holders out of one piece of cardstock!)
Score lengthwise at 3, 5, and 8 inches.

Fold on each of the score lines.
To decorate the front I used Real Red marker to color in the "dec. 25" part only on the stamp from the Tags Til Christmas stamp set. I then stamped it onto Very Vanilla card stock.

I punched out the "dec. 25" with the Large Oval punch and also punched out a Real Red Scallop Oval and Garden Green Decorative Label. The DSP (Holly Berry Bouquet) is cut 1-1/2 x 3-1/2.

Using SNAIL adhesive, adhere the DSP to the front of the holder, making sure it is on the side with the top "flap".

I attached the "dec. 25" with SNAIL adhesive to the Real Red scallop oval and then used a Dimensional to attach it to the Garden Green decorative label. The decorative label is attached to the front using two Dimensionals.

Place some Hershey's Hugs & Kisses into a small baggie (I find these in bulk at Paper Zone) and fold over at the top.

Line it up to the top, and center it.

Fold the flap over the back.

Punch two holes using 1/8" Circle punch about 3/4" apart (this will also punch through the baggie).

Thread a piece of 5/8" Real Red Satin ribbon from behind to the front.

Make a pretty bow!

You'll see the candy kisses from the side view.

Hope to see you tomorrow for the last project...and a giveaway!!

Blessings to you and I hope you've had a wonderful weekend!
