This is a little candy holder that I made for my workshop this past weekend at Jo’s house. It was one of our Make and Takes — and we put Kit Kat Candy Bars inside (I liked the red color on their wrapper). This is my sample, though, and all I had was Hershey’s. You could add any type of small, slender candy or gum in this little slot. I got this idea from my friend Danielle, who is a demonstrator in the Houston area. She had put a cardstock “belly band” around the holder instead of the ribbon. It was perfectly adorable, but I decided that a ribbon would be less confusing for my class. Plus, I’m really “in” to ribbon…….gotta have it on ALL my projects! I suppose that I’m stuck on it even more because my precious girls won’t wear ribbons in their hair any more!
So, here’s how to make this little treat……..
*Start with cardstock measuring 2 3/4″ x 9″ (Gable Green in the sample)
*Score at 3 1/2″, 4″, 7 1/2″, and 8″
* Punch with Word Window Punch about 1/2″ up from the shortest end left after you scored.
*Add a small piece of Sticky Strip above the Word Window slot to hold this down.
* Add candy bar in the slot and tie ribbon LOOSELY around the bottom section.
* Front Piece measures 2 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ (Green Galore)
*Attach front piece with 2 Dimensionals at the top 2 corners ONLY.
*Stamp and punch front piece as desired.
