Last weekend during the blog hop, I showed a Double Pocket Treat Holder and mentioned that I would be back with instructions. It took me a little longer than I anticipated, but here are the step-by-step instructions for making these.
Here is the finished project.
Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper,
Tags til Christmas stamp set, Simply Scored tool, Real Red 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Lucky Limeade dye ink pad, 3/8" Brights Glimmer Brads, Scallop Square punch, and 1/16" Circle Handheld Punch.
For this holder, I started with a piece of 6x6" DSP. Fold it in half into a triangle.
Put the folded edge to the left side of the Simply Scored tool and score a line at 3/4".
Rotate fold to the top of the Simply Scored tool and score two lines - one at 2-3/4" and one at 5-3/4". Using a Bone Folder, fold and crease on all score lines well.
Here is what your DSP should look like (black lines indicate where the scores are).
Fold in the two triangles on the left and right.
Fold your DSP up on the center scored line.
Then flip it over and fold up each side. The front and the back should look like this (they should be the same):
This is what it should look like from the side. Notice how the bottom looks like a "W"? That's how you know you did it correctly.
Bring the top two pieces together and fasten together with a brad. You could also punch a larger hole and thread ribbon through and tie.
Decorate the front as desired and insert candy! (Chocolate, of course!)
Here is a slight view from the side.
Really very easy - and super adorable! You can also use a larger piece of DSP - just be sure that it is square. You will have to adjust the score lines accordingly. (And aren't you impressed that I still have chocolate around to put in it for the pictures?)
Just because I used Christmas paper doesn't mean you are limited to that, though. Think how cute this would be with Valentine's DSP or actually any kind of paper you'd like. It makes a terrific little treat to let someone know that you are thinking of them. If you have any questions on how to make these, feel free to contact me. I'll be happy to help however I can.
Until next time...
