Another Treat Holder

So I’m back with another treat holder because well who couldn’t use a cute simple gift. Plus I’m a little addicted to my GCD papers lately especially the black and white. This is a design I made as I went, but hopefully I can walk you through it, if you’d like to give it a go, since its pretty simple.

To make the small pocket inside I cut a 6 by 3 inch rectangle. I folded at a ¼ inch in from each long side. Then I folded down the middle and again ¼ inch below that.

Snip the two folds in the center as seen in the picture and add adhesive. The two side flaps sit on top of each other and one side will be longer than the other like a library pocket. Punch a hole on each side of the pocket at the top.

The outside is simple a 3.5 by 8 inch rectangle folded at 3.5 and then again at 4.5. You will need to punch holes in the middle sides of the top of the container. Thread the ribbon through the pocket then up through the outside piece and tie a bow.

Decorate the front and inside pocket as desired. I choose some GCD Studios paper, a chipboard circle and a tag for the front.
