Here are the basic supplies you need to get started.
Card stock measuring 8 1/2 x 9 1/2 ( I chose pumpkin)
(1) strip of black card stock measuring 2 x 6 inches
(1) strip of gold card stock measuring 1 1/2 x 6 inches
(1) strip of black card stock measuring 8 1/2 x 2 inches
(1) strip of gold card stock measuring 8 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches
Image and embellishments
For instructional purposes I used white card stock for the following two photos so you could see the score and fold lines better.
Turn card stock and make score lines at 1 1/2, 3, 3 1/4, 6 1/4, 6 1/2, and 8 inches.
Now turn your card stock again and add 1/2 inch score lines on both sides of just the bottom portion. (refer to the photo for this, these are your glue tabs)
Cut away the portion with the solid lines. You can pencil this in on your card stock if you need to and erase later. It's up to you.
This is what it should look like after you've made your cuts. Now it time to make your folds.
Fold the two inside scores on both sides towards the center, The outside scores on both sides away from the center and the bottom scores up towards the center.
Burnish your edges with a bone folder so they are nice and crisp.
The next photo show what your folds should look like.
Now it's time to assemble your treat holder.
With the front flaps folded, add your adhesive to half of the the flap and attach the front strip of card stock. I also like to add adhesive to my front strip to give it a little more stability. While holding your folded card closed, attach the front strip making sure to center it.
It's time to make your band. I like to attach my smaller strip of card stock to my larger strip before I make my score lines. Score the band at 2 1/2, 2 7/8, 5 7/8 and 6 1/4 inches and crease, fold and glue.
This is what your card and band should look like. I used my cuttlebug and label one nestabilities to create a frame for my image. When attaching your image to the front of you card, you are going to add your adhesive to only the portion attached to the right flap.
That's pretty much it! As you can see from the completed picture I added a little punched moon and some hand cut lettering to finish it off, but you can embellish yours any way you want. Sorry this was so long but I hope it was clear enough! Have fun creating your own treat holders.
Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN
