MORE 6″x6″ TREAT HOLDERS!

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.

Enjoy,

Jenny

 

HOME SWEET HOME EXTENSION!

I showed you the little beach house yesterday. I have to show you this house though. When I started making these houses I thought they were cute but it would be good to be a little bigger. So the house underwent an extension.

Here is my extended version. I will explain the “how-to” below.

mint-macaron-larger-house

On this house I cut the house in Thick Whisper White and stamped the Hardwood Background stamp in Smoky Slate.  The roof is Mint Macaron and the windows and door frames are in Basic Gray.

I did cut the door out but I think next time I won’t worry about this.  It tends not to stay shut but then you could sneak one of those Hershey Kisses out! This size actually fits 24 Kisses in.

Back View.

HOW TO EXTEND YOUR HOME SWEET HOME HOUSE:

1. Cut 2 house pieces from the Home Sweet Home Thinlits.  To save card you will only need to cut the front/back of the house section so the one with the peak leaving a small tab around each side. With the same colour card you will need 2 pieces cut at 10cm x 6cm (4″x 2 3/8″).  Score at 1cm and 7cm (Score at 3/8″ and 2 3/4″)

2. Stamp or decorate your pieces as you like before assembling.  Also, cut your door and windows. TIP: Before cutting your windows, mark a line in pencil across the card piece then line up the bottom edge of your window Framelit on the pencil line to be sure that the pieces are level.

20160930_111436

3. Fold on all the score lines and assemble together. Consider where you want to be able to open your house to get the treats.  On mine although I had the door cut I had the bottom open.  I just used Glue dots to stick it together temporarily.

To assemble add your adhesive on the side tabs of the front and back of the house. I used Fast Fuse but you can use Tear and Tape or other adhesive. Adhere one side wall piece to the tab on the front of the house piece and one side wall to the other tab on the front of the house. Do this by lining up the top score line of the side of the house to the top of the tab piece if that makes sense. The bottom score line should line up with the bottom of the front tab.

Adhere the back of the house to the other wall piece.  If you wish to have the back opening then just add adhesive to only one tab.

4.  For the roof: Cut your card to 7 cm x 9cm.  Score 4.5cm. (2 3/4″x 3 1/2″ Score at 1 3/4″)

Emboss your piece with the Brick Embossing Folder checking that the “bricks” line up the right way on your card.  That is that they run across.  Line up the score line of the card with an edge of the brick wall.

Place adhesive to the top tabs of the front/back house piece and also on the top tab on the side walls.  Line up the “roof” piece with the top of the house and adhere together.

5.  Now decorate to your little hearts content.  🙂  The options are endless really.  With this size you can fit so many treats.  As I had mentioned I was able to fit 24 Hershey Kisses. Unfortunately I didn’t have any Ferrero Rochers on hand.  That would be interesting to see how many can fit.  That’s for another day. 🙂

Have you been making Tiny Houses?  I would love to see them.  Why not drop me a comment with a link for us all to check out.

Thanks for visiting.

Have a great weekend.  It’s a long weekend here so I am not sure what is in store.

SKINNY MINI TREAT BAG HOLDERS!

A few weeks ago I shared the Easter Baskets I made for the upcoming Easter markets.  I made a few cute treat holders for the markets too.  I have been wanting to show you the project for a couple of weeks but with Easter and Sale-A-Bration there were so many other projects to show you. 🙂

These are really quick to make and you can use them for any small treats.  Here I have some little sherbet straws for the kiddies but you could add a chocolate treat or coffee sachet.  I have used some retired Designer Series Paper.

448

447

Aren’t they fun and colourful?? I have simply decorated them with some ribbon (retired) and cut the “enjoy” (which is in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set), from black card to add to the front.  Really they probably took all of one hour to make.  I didn’t have a lot of time but wanted something cute but inexpensive to add to my stall.

Do you want to know how to make them?

SKINNY MINI TREAT BAGS

1. Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) a little larger than the large section of your ‘Mini Treat Bag Thinlits’= 10.5cm x 15cm (4″ x 6″).  Cut the piece out on your Big Shot.

442

2. Score the large section in half vertically so at approximately 4.6cm (1 7/8″).  The photo below shows the DSP piece with the right side facing up. Cut off the left hand side on the bottom tab section.

Place your piece on your Paper Trimmer with the narrow side tab at the top.  Line up your zig zag edge at 2cm (3/4″) and score a line from the top edge and just to the score line in the middle.

444

Cut off the small tab on the top left with your scissors. (Which I hadn’t done yet in the photo). I like to taper the end of the long side tab to give a neater finish when you fold.

3. Fold on all the score lines and open out again. At the top cut down on the middle score line to where it meets the 2cm (3/4″) score line running across.

445

4. Fold again on the score lines so the folded flap piece is at the front and the taller section is at the back. Place adhesive on the right side (the outside) of the long tab and fold to adhere to the back of the bag with the tab section on the inside.  (It doesn’t matter too much if it is adhered to the outside. Just for a neater finish I like it on the inside).

Place adhesive at the back of the small bottom tab and fold over to the back to adhere down. (I wasn’t worried that this was on the outside at the back). Place adhesive under the front flap to adhere down.

Decorate as you like and fill it with treats you would like to give.

I hope this is easy to follow for you. Please let me know if you any questions.

Enjoy 🙂

THANK YOU TREAT HOLDERS!

A few posts back I showed you some cute tea bag holders I made.  You can see that post HERE. Based on these holders I made up some little Thank You Treat Holders for some special people this week.  Here is one of them to show you.

P1170515

I have used the ‘Bohemian Designer Series Paper’ on the front flap.  I embossed the front panel with the ‘Boho Chic’ Embossing Folder. The greeting is from the Hostess set ‘You’re A Whole Lot of Lovely’.  This was punched out with the 2 1/2″ (6.4cm) Circle Punch.  The flap can be tucked in behind the circle to enclose it.  Some I added a little glue dot underneath the flap to hold it down as some kept popping up.  I added some little flowers punched from the ‘Itty Bitty Accents’ Pack and added little dots for the centres with white gel pen.  I added some loops of Gold Cord behind the circle before I adhered the circle down with dimensionals.

This Treat Holder was the perfect size for a little chocolate treat.  I added a glue dot to the back of the Chocolate to keep it in place.

P1170513

To make them I used the same directions for the Tea Bag Treat Holder that you will find in the above post link except I only scored the card (7 cm x 25cm) at 9cm, 11.5cm and 21cm.  ** If you would like the imperial measurements for these, then check at the above link for the tea bag Holders. Just don’t add the 4″ score line).

These were well received today I think 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,

These little pouches are quick and easy to make with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, some Jiggle Eyes, ribbon, Blendabilities ( to colour the Rhinestones) and some Candy Canes of course. They easily fit 2 Candy Canes inside and could fit more if you wanted or some other treats. If you don’t want to give sweets, it would fit some coloured pencils inside or other small gifts.

This little treat is made using the Envelope Punch Board, some Jiggle Eyes, the Bird Builder Punch, ½” Circle Punch and the White Signo Uni-Ball Gel Pen for highlights.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 4!

Latte 12 weeks Header

We bring you another Christmas project this week for our 12 Weeks of Christmas – and today it is my turn to share a project.  I do hope you like it.  Today I have a Tiny Treat Gift Holder for you.

P1140690This little Treat Holder will fit a variety of treats all together for you to give someone special this Christmas.  Really it is just so simple.  I have used 3 of the Tiny Treat Boxes available in the Holiday Catalogue.  These are a bargain at $11.95 (AUS) for 24 boxes.  They are so cute and there are so many different ways you can use them.  This would be a really cute gift to give someone as a little extra or for those “Hard to buy for” people.

For this I have adhered 3 of the boxes together with Sticky Strip and then decorated them using the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper.  I have added some stars from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and cut with the Star Framelits. Additional stars were cut from Gold Foil Sheets with the smallest Stars Framelits.  The gorgeous Red Satin Ribbon finishes the box off.  Of course, you can decorate these boxes however you like.  Fill some Cellophane bags with treats and tie them off.  I used the Gold Twine for this.

If you would like a detailed tutorial to create this project then just drop me a message or email.  If you need any products to create the project then let me know or you can order directly at my Online Store Here.

And of course, we have a special bundle for you this week to help you create this project. These are the items you will receive in your Bundle AND receive 10% off!  

Bundle Price is $44.80 plus Shipping and Handling.

I hope you like today’s project.  I would love to see your version when you create it so make sure you drop me a photo.
 
Happy Christmas creating!!

CHOCOLATE TREE!!

Ok, one more Christmas creation before New Year.  I just really wanted to show you this one. I found the tutorial for these recently on Brenda’s blog here.  It is really clever. Just after I saw this I found the Kisses and Mini Hershey bars at a local discount store.  I was so excited because they are really hard to come by here and YAY! now I could make them!!

Here is my Chocolate Tree.

P1070495

Here is a view from the top.

P1070496

Do you like it? Once you get the folding right for the triangles in the middle they are really easy.  They would make a really nice gift to give at Christmas.  A bit late for this year but maybe file the idea away for next year!!!

Wishing you a Very Happy 2013.  Stay safe as you celebrate.  I want you all to be healthy and well for another year of creating and sharing.

See you next year!

BOX WEEK – BOX #3

This gift box today is an idea that has been around the blog world for years.  I thought I would give it a Christmas touch.

P1070312

P1070282-1

This gift box is known as a Sour Cream Box or as we know it downunder as a Sunny Boy Box.  You can find the instructions here.  They are just too easy!

I have created a medallion using the Simply Scored from Gumball Green card.  The greeting is from “More Merry Messages and coloured with Markers.  It was then punched out with the 3/4” circle punch.  I cut a strip of the Cherry Cobbler Tulle and wrapped around some cotton thread in the middle to gather it up.  This was all adhered together and added to the box with Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by for Day 3.

See you again tomorrow.
