Stampin' Celebration #12

Another great Stampin' Celebration Challenge! This week the theme is Dessert Party. Yum! So, I thought it only appropriate that my project include candy. :-) It also happens that I'm using this treat holder for one of my organized swaps this week at convention.

This candy holder is a simple one using the Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die. I first came up with the idea to use the Scallop Square Die as a treat holder HERE--the very first Stampin' Celebration challenge. For this treat holder I added the layer of 4" by 4" Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper to add some color.

Here's a picture of the back of the treat holder:

Hint #1: Place a small strip of Sticky Strip where the two top corners meet. This will help hold everything in place while you use the Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes that the ribbon will thread through.

Hint #2: If you are adding a baked treat or other item that you are worried may damage the paper, you can add a layer of protective plastic. I used the plastic that covers the card stock to make a protective layer for the treat holder. Just run the plastic through the Big Shot with the Scallop Square Die, and adhere to the paper using SNAIL adhesive.

What a great idea and presentation for party favors! I may steal this idea for my son's first birthday party!
