Hey everyone, happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week. Were you able to catch my Facebook Live this morning? If not, you can catch the replay here on my YouTube Channel. While you are there, I would love it if you could like and share my video and subscribe if you haven’t yet. Also, I wanted to update my FB Live summer schedule with you. Every Wednesday I will be having my grandson for the day. For most weeks that shouldn’t have any affect on my schedule except for the third Thursday of the month. On those Thursdays I will be prepping my Stamp Club and Team projects as our club meets on the third Friday of the month and our team meetings are the following day. I figured I would cut myself some slack on those weeks. 🙂
So for today’s project I just had to share the pillow gift I gave everyone who ordered my Paper Share last month. It turned out so cute! 3D projects are not my forte, so thankfully I have Pinterest to look for all those cute things created by those that do think in 3D. Today’s project was cased from Connie Stewart and I have to agree with her, these cookies are some of my favorite! And this treat holder holds them perfectly, although I think that’s what she created it for. 😉 It holds a single packaged tea bag from Twinings and two packs of the Biscoff cookies, both of which I purchased at my local grocery store. The cookies come two to a pack with 14 packs in a package and they are DELICIOUS with tea; hot or cold!
Here are the measurements for the holder:
- Base in Fresh Freesia cardstock cut at 2 3/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 3/4″, 3 7/8″, 4 5/8″ and 7 3/4″
- Pansy Petals DSP cut at 2 5/8″ x 3″
- Fresh Freesia Sheer Ribbon cut at 21″
I wanted to use the new Measure of Love stamp set and thought this project was perfect for it. You can actually create 4 treat holders from one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ which makes it perfect for classes, shower gifts, or whatever event you may be hosting. Start by scoring your cardstock on the 8 1/2″ side at the top of your score board. I love how ours has the little clips so that you can mark the score lines quickly, which helps for mass producing projects.
Once the card base was scored, I cut it at 2 3/4″ multiple times. I then rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. That punch is definitely passed over in the catalog, but I have to tell you, it is a good one to have on hand. I then folded all the score lines and added my piece of gingham DSP to the top of the base. I used my Stampin’ Seal to adhere the tea bag to the inside top of the treat holder and the cookies on the bottom. Before you add the two packages of cookies, turn them over and secure them together with a piece of tape. They set together easier in the holder.
Once the treats were secured, I added a tiny bit of seal to keep it closed. This makes it easier to tie the bow around the holder. For the tag, I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink and the little flowers in Fresh Freesia inks and punched it out with the Double Oval Punch. I attached it to a scalloped oval punched in Gorgeous Grape cardstock. I added some Mini Dimensionals to the back and added it over the ribbon.
It looked really plain, so I took a scrap of Basic White and punched out the flower from the Strawberry Builder Punch. I sponged on some Gorgeous Grape ink around the edges and then I took my Take Your Pick Tool and my Stampin’ Pierce Mat (which I used to stamp with since the stamp set is a photopolymer stamp set), I pushed into the center of the flower to give it some dimension. I added it to the oval with a Mini Glue Dot. I didn’t have any of the 2021/2023 In Color rhinestones, so I colored one of our regular rhinestones with the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends marker. Worked perfectly!
Isn’t that a cute little treat holder? And with 4 out of a sheet of cardstock, with no waste, it really is apretty economical treat holder to create. If you would like to order any of these items, you can head over to my online store here to shop. When you use Host Code XD9YNPFY and order $40.00 or more, I’ll send you a package of hand made cards as a thank you. Everyone loves to get happy mail and what better happy mail then cards you can send out to make someone’s day?
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great Thursday!
