Halloween Happiness #5

This sweet treat holder is crazy easy to put together!  I did this at a recent workshop and it was a hit!  The best part is that it holds a full size candy bar, no fun size here!  This is the real deal!

To create this cutie you will need the following papers cut to size:

Bermuda Bay Card Stock 3" X 11"
Two pieces of Motley Monsters DSP measuring 2 3/4" X 4"
scrap Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Whisper White

Round the corners of all four corners of your card stock, as well as the tops of your DSP pieces.  

Score your piece of Bermuda Bay at 6 1/2" and 6 3/4".  This will form the pocket for your candy bar.

Adhere the DSP pieces as show on the inside and the front panel.  Don't worry that the inside DSP piece isn't long enough to go to the bottom.  Doing so would just be a waste of paper because you can't see it anyway.  Once you DSP is adhered, put your candy bar inside and use a piece of ribbon or twine to wrap around and tie it.  You want to make sure it's snug so your candy bar won't fall out.

For the decorative front you will need the Good Greetings stamp set and the Holiday Invitation set.
With the bats and stars stamp with Blackberry Bliss on Crushed Curry Card Stock.  Punch it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and sponge the edges with Hello Honey ink.  Stamp your halloween greeting of choice on a strip of Whisper White card stock and flag the ends.  Punch out a piece of Bermuda Bay with the Decorative Label punch and cut a small strip of Silver Glimmer paper that is flagged.

Now to assemble your treat holder;
With your twine or ribbon knot to the side, use Dimensionals on the back of your Decorative Label Punched piece, one of the top and one on the bottom.  Place that over your twine so the dimensionals stick to the front label of your treat holder.  Using another Dimensional on the back of your moon, place that in the center of your Decorative Label Punch.  Then take your strip of Glimmer Paper and Halloween sentiment and with a bit of SNAIL adhesive or a Glue Dot on the back, slide it under your moon and attach it to the Decorative Label Punch piece.  

Your treat holder is finished!  Super simple and crazy cute!
