MCT 19th Edition Release Blog Hop: Sweet Treats

by Veronica

It's finally here! The 19th Edition is officially released over at My Creative Time today! If you've hopped here from Trell's blog, you are certainly on the right track! If not, click on over to Emma's blog to start this Hop from the beginning (you WON'T be sorry - promise!).

Today I created a little treat holder for my "Sweet". This holder is really easy to make - only using ONE piece of card stock (plus your extra card stock for embellishing). Inside my little holder are two Andes mints (or, Andes Mountains as I call them *giggle*). I'm sure a Ghirardelli chocolate square would fit inside, too (perhaps some minor size adjustments?).

I cut my orange card stock at 4.5" x 6". I then scored at 1.75" on both ends of the long side. After centering my candies in the middle area of the scored card stock, I folded on the scored lines and taped it shut. This left me with two open ends. I taped the two open ends shut and used my paper crimper to get the wavy edge-effect. The crimping helps to keep the ends shut, too. This easy holder would be GREAT for a classroom of kids!

Now comes the fun part! I stamped the little bat from Treats For My Sweet in Versamark randomly on the green layer. After stamping and embossing the sentiment (from the same set) on the white card stock, I used my scissors to 'rough up' the edges a bit. Most of the layers are popped up (of course!).

If you've visited my blog before, you probably recognize the awesome green striped ribbon. I use this ribbon for everything from Christmas to my wedding album to Halloween! It's so versatile! It was found at Hobby Lobby a while ago and I'm always sure to stock up on it when I find it on the shelves (...and my Mom stocks up for me, too! Thanks, Mom!).

  3. Super cute goodie holder :) I love creating favors and finding new ideas! That ribbon is gorgeous, so I don't blame you for wanting to use it on everything because I would to [if I had it] :) I don't have a Hobby Lobby in my area, but maybe I'll take the 3-hour trip to the nearest one to me someday! Lol
