Final January Class Project

I want to share with you the final project that was made at my January classes.  It's a cute and very quick little treat, perfect for Valentine's Day.  And if you still need to put something together, these are the ticket!

The original idea comes from Dawn Griffith.  She made one that held 3 Hershey Nuggets.  This little treat holder holds 2 Hershey Nuggets, and allowed me to use the Love Blossoms Paper Stack from the Occasions catalog.

Here is a photo tutorial of how it's made.  Hope it helps!

Cut a piece of card stock measuring 2" by 6".  Score it along the 6" side at 2-3/4" and 3-1/4".

After scoring, punch both ends using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (or any tag topper punch).

Fold along the score lines.

To create the "box" that holds the Hershey Nuggets, cut a piece of Designer Series Paper measuring 1-1/2" by 5-1/4".  Score it along the 5-1/4" side at 2", 2-1/2", 4-1/2" and 5".  Be careful when scoring the paper as it can easily be cut while scoring!

Fold along the score lines.

Glue the small 1/4" tab end to the other end to form a tube of sorts.  Slide this over the tag-top-punched piece.  This forms the holder.

To finish, place the Hershey Nuggets inside (2 fit very nicely), place a piece of ribbon through the tag-punched top and tie a piece of twine around to secure.  Then decorate as desired.  These little treats are perfect for any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy stamping!
