Thanks so much for joining me on the Halloween blog-hop!! I'm so excited you came to craft with me! Don't forget to leave me a comment at the end of this post for your chance to win my blog candy for today! In case you missed it, here is a link to my blog candy announcement.
My first project is a simple treat holder using the "Celebrate It" bags that are at Michaels. I'm sure you can find similar bags at other stores, but that's where I grabbed mine!
Here are a list of the materials you'll need for this project:
You'll also need a stamp set, stickers or Cricut element to complete this cute little treat holder. I also used ribbon to decorate the front, but it's really up to you! :)
Step 1: Cut your card stock (here I used black) to 3 3/4" x 8 1/2" - You can make three of these holders from a 12" x12" sheet or two from a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet.
Step 2: Score your card stock at 3 1/2", 7" and 7 1/4". Fold all score lines.
Step 3: Cut your Celebrate It bag to 3 1/2" x 3". The bags I buy are 3 1/2" x 2" x 6 3/4". So when you cut the length to 3", you'll get enough for two treat holders plus just a little waste.
Step 4: Attach the bag to the card stock base. I use my ATG gun to first attach only one side of the bag.
Step 5: Then apply glue to the second half of the bag and just fold your card stock base to adhere it in the right place.
Step 6: I used self adhesive ribbon cut to the width of my holder to decorate the front. I found this ribbon in the dollar bin at Joann's. You could easily use any Halloween ribbon you've found.
Step 7: I cut out a scallop circle from white card stock, a circle from DCWV glitter paper and added a black cat sticker from K and Company for the front elements. Can you see the rhinestone eyes on that kitty?
Step 8: I used my ATG gun to add glue to only the top half of the kitty element. I then attached it to only the top flap of my treat holder. Pretty cute huh! :)
Step 9: Slip in some Halloween candy. I used these Gummy Body Parts from Frankford Candy (I bought them at Walmart). This one is a gummy brain, but the candy also includes gummy eyeballs, feet, hands, ears etc.
Step 10: I then added a little seal under the flap with a CTMH Halloween stamp I bought at a garage sale this summer (CTMH Seasonal Celebrations).
|Sorry, I know this is another holder, I just missed the pic of the black one before I sealed it shut.|
Step 11: Seal the treat holder closed with a pop dot.
That's it! Super easy... in fact they are so easy look at all the others I finished in a little over an hour.
Come on back and visit me for the remaining two day of the blog hop... I have a couple more great projects to share with you.
