Yesterday I showed you some more Z-fold cards and they had little treat holders. I thought I would share with you how to make those particular ones.
Firstly, the Dapper Denim Napkin fold.
These are one of the easiest, quickest treat holder you could possibly make. I used to make them a lot when I was younger but had forgotten about them until recently. They are a good size to fit a small chocolate treat in. Here is how to make them.
Of course, you can make these any size you like. The principal is the same. Just be sure that your paper is square.
For this particular version I used the Color Theory paper stack in which the piece measures 6″x6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm).
NAPKIN FOLD TREAT HOLDER
1. Fold your paper piece in half diagonally.
2. With the fold towards you, take the left hand corner and fold it to about the mid point on the paper on the opposite side. See the photo below to see what I mean.
3. Fold the right hand corner so it overlaps the last fold and for the point to reach the mid point on the opposite side. Place a little adhesive behind the folds to help it stay closed.
4. Take the top point and fold just one layer down over the 2 folds. Place adhesive behind it to keep it closed.
Add a tag or embellishment as you like. For this version, I used the Dapper Denim marker over just the “smile” word in one of the sentiments from the Colorful Seasons set. Cut that with the Stitched Oval Framelits. I stamped a few snowflakes on to the piece too and finished it off by cutting some “snowflake” embellishments from the Layered Seasons Thinlits.
OLD OLIVE MINI BOX
This little mini box is so cute. You could fit a lipstick or lip balm in it or a small chocolate. The finished size measures 7cm Wide (2 3/4″), 3.2cm Deep (1 1/4″) and 2.2cm Height (7/8″).
This was made with the Envelope Punch Board. When I went back to find the tutorial for this I couldn’t seem to find it. I am sure I used the one by my lovely friend Tanya HERE. When I made it up again though it was slightly longer. The tutorial at that link is a paid Tutorial for lots of different sized boxes with the Envelope Punch Board, but for $2 it is not a bad purchase. 🙂 Have a look on Pinterest though for a few other versions. There are larger ones but I was in keeping with the 6″x6″ paper.
So here are the 4 little treat holders made just with a piece of 6″x6″ paper. There are so many others too but it is amazing what you can make with such a small piece.
