Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which are two super cute and easy treat holders CASEd from the 2020 August – December Mini Catalog! When you are browsing catalogs, have you ever wondered how to make those super cute treat holders? Well, I’m going to show you two quick and easy holders, one is a box and the other is a mini bag, from the new mini catalog! I’m first going to show you how to make the poinsettia “thank you” box found on page 14 in the mini catalog.
To make the bottom, cut a 5 ½” x 5 ½” piece of Basic Black cardstock, scoring at 1” along each side, and only cut along one score line in each corner to the next score line (those are the arrows):
I used this design from Magic in this Night DSP, cut at 5” x 5”, scored at ¾” along each side, and cutting along one score line in each corner to the next score line (same as above):
Use your bone folder to burnish all the score lines for the top and bottom, use liquid glue, Stampin’ Seal+, or Tear & Tape on the cut flap to adhere each side together:
To decorate the top, I used the fourth largest Layering Circle Die to cut out of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, use my Stamparatus to stamp the spooky house from Everything Essential stamp set in Memento ink, and used the second largest scalloped Layering Circle Die to cut out of Black Glitter Paper to layer under the stamped Pumpkin Pie die-cut:
I adhered the layered circle die-cuts to the top of the box with dimensionals:
To give you an idea of the size of the inside of the box, I used three pieces of candy, which fit nicely, and room for one or two more pieces:
When the box is closed, it’s a snug fit so I didn’t wrap it with any ribbon or string to keep it closed/together:
For the mini bag, you can find this on page 39 in the mini catalog, which is decorated like a little house with one of the cellophane bags inside. I’m just making the bag (or open top box), with cardstock, DSP, and ribbon.
Start with a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, cut at 8 ½” x 4”, score at 3”, 4”, 7”, and 8” along the 8 ½” side, and score at 1” along the 4” side:
Use your snips to cut out the little ½” x 1” strip of cardstock from the bottom corner:
I used the hole punch side of the Detailed Trio Punch on the 1” sides of the bag/box and then burnished each score line with a bone folder:
I used liquid glue to adhere the bottom and side flaps together to complete the bag/box. To decorate the front and back sides, I cut two pieces of this design from Magic in this Night DSP at 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” and used liquid glue to adhere:
For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Hallows Night Magic in Versamark ink on Blackberry Bliss cardstock, heat set in Silver Embossing Powder, use the Classic Label Punch to punch out, and adhere using Black Mini Dimensionals. For the handle, cut a 12” piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon and tie each end around the punched hole into a knot, snipping off any excess:
The dimensions of the bag/box are 3” x 3” x 1” and you can fit four pieces of candy inside:
I just love these both of these treat holders!! If you are wondering how much you need to make multiples of each, for the box you can make four lids from one 12” x 12” piece of DSP and two bottoms from one piece of 8 ½” x 11” cardstock, unless you use a 12” x 12” piece of cardstock, then four bottoms. For the bag/box, you can make two from one 8 ½” x 11” piece of cardstock. These treat holders are great for any occasion, when you need something quick, and to use up your DSP!
