I had my Summer Sizzler Catalogue Launch on this weekend for the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. It was a fun time sharing lots of the gorgeous new products and samples with them.
I will share some of the cards I have made over the next couple of weeks. Today I thought I would share with you the little Treat Holders I made for everyone who came to Thank them for coming.
These cute little Treat Holders are made using the new Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack. The paper is 6″x6″ (15.2cmx15.2cm) and are just the right size for these. I made them in some of the different colours. I took a photo of 3 of the different colour ones. I have also used the lovely Organdy Ribbon that is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration. I will tell you how to make them below.
To decorate the front of them I stamped one of the butterfly stamps from Butterfly Gala set using Black Memento ink and these were then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. Using the Butterfly punch makes life a lot easier. No fussy cutting them. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set. I stamped the “THANKS” on to Whisper White and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I then could trim off each end. I find this a much easier way of doing it.
To make the Treat Holders
1. Take your 15.2cm x15.2cm (6″x6″) piece of paper. I have used the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper stack.
Line the left hand edge of the paper on the 6.7cm (2 5/8″) mark on the Envelope Punch Board.
Punch the paper and score on the score grid of the Punch Board.
2. Turn the paper 90′. Line up the little score tab on the previous score line. Punch and score.
Turn the paper another 90′. Line the tab mark on the score line, punch and score. Turn again and repeat.
3. Round the corners using the corner rounder on the punch board. Fold on the score lines. Decide which side you want showing on the outside, place that side facing down when folding.
NB: In the photo below I hadn’t turned it over at this point.
Fold up the bottom tab. Place adhesive on the 2 outside edges of this tab. I used Snail adhesive. Fold in one side tab and adhere down. Before folding in the other side tab place adhesive on the inside bottom edge of this tab. Fold over and adhere down.
Decorate as you like. To add ribbon, punch a hole in the top tab and thread through your ribbon.
This is a great size for a Tea Bag packet, chocolate, Gift card or other treat.
