I am at OnStage in Atlanta today and am sharing with you the little treats I made to give to other demonstrators. I love the sharing of ideas at these events. So I am going to share with you the two treat holders I made.
A month or so ago I was looking for candy to use as treats for this event. When I saw the Cowtails I knew it would be perfect to pair with one of my favorite stamp sets. It is the Over The Moon set. I love these cows!!
The box is an idea from The Paper Pixie. I got it resized to fit two of the cowtails inside. You can see Julie’s post HERE. Her project fit a small Altoid tin.
My box is narrower and longer than Julie’s and is made with the Mango Melody card stock. The measurements for the 2 cowtails is 2 1/2 X 10 1/2, score on the 2 1/2 side at 1/2 on each side. Score the 10 1/2 side at 4 1/4, 4 3/4, 9, and 9 1/2. Follow the directions from Julie on putting it together. They are the same.
The second project is much faster to make. I could not make too many of the boxes due to cramping hands. (Getting old stinks sometimes!) So I went with a faster version. This version utilizes the 3 X 6 cello bags. I made a 3 X 3 piece that is folded in half and stapled to the bag, then layer the decorations to cover the staples.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. If you follow my Facebook page, Blue Line Stamping, I will be posting pictures from a Brian King (Stamp With Brian) event on Friday and Stampin’ Up! on Saturday. At the last SU event we were able to share immediately new products that we received. That was a big change from previous years. Hopefully we can share this time as well.
Come back on Monday to see the card I made as a swap for Brian’s event on Friday.
