One of the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator perks is attending the Fun, Exciting, and Informative Stampin’ Up! events each year. This year there is one here in Atlanta on Saturday. To add to the exciting weekend, my spline Brian King, is hosting a Spring event the day before. My post for Friday will be the card I have made to use to swap with other demonstrators. But today’s post is a simple Treat Holder that I have made for the other demonstrators I will be sharing a table with. (Ssshhhh Don’t tell them!) If you have been stampings and papercraftingl for several years you will probably remember the old Sour Cream Container Treat Holders. That is what I have made. If you are relatively new, then you will have the directions for a quick and easy treat holder. A win/win.
I made these very plain on purpose. I wanted to show you a great treat holder that can be done very inexpensively. These are made with Whisper White, not the think, card stock. I stamped the “stamp” from Crafting Forever in Sahara Sand and then colored the little hearts in various pinks from the Stampin’ Write Markers.
As long las you begin with a square piece of card stock or DSP, you can make almost any size of these. I used a piece that is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2. That way I could get 2 holders out of each sheet of paper. There is a good sized piece leftover that can be used for tags to add to the holder, or scraps stamping. Another advantage to the Whisper White card stock is that if I wanted to tie on a tag, I could easily punch through one end with a circle punch. Since the white is thinner, it would not be as difficult to punch trough two layers.
To make the treat box, I stamped and then added Tear & Tape to one end of the front side. I then turned it over and added the tape to each side that is adjacent to the tape on the front. Here are pictures.
Hopefully you can see the tape. In retrospect the white was not the best choice to use for the photos. Sorry about that! However, these are showing the tape placement. To close the container, remove all of the tap covers. Then roll the paper in your hand and overlap the opposite side of the front onto the taped edge. I place the tape very close to the edge and that helps in adhering straight. Once that is secure, you will have a small roll, like a toilet paper cardboard tube. Or if you want to think in nicer terms, 1/2 of a paper towel tube ! 🙂 Now squeeze one end and it will stick the together. Fill the tube with candy or a small gift and then squeeze the other end together, BUT in the opposite direction of the first one. You can see what I mean from the original post picture hopefully!
These really are easy and fun to make and can be personalized for any type event. I hope you will give them a try if you have not seen them before.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! The supplies I used are at the bottom of the page. And if you have any questions about these little holders, please do not hesitate to contact me. Have fun!!
Another Paper Pumpkin Special: The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out. So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that. New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price. So 2 months for the price of 1. A great deal. Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418
It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I would love to have you join my team. A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first. Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early. For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator. Of course, the discount helps! If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
