If you need Party Favors, “Thank You” treats, or just want to do That Little Something for someone, it is simple to “customize” a treat holder to fit the treat you are giving.
Here is what you need:
- 12 x 12 cardstock with a pattern on each side
- White textured cardstock
- Matching ribbon
- Printable gift tag (available at http://www.etsy.com/shop/PixelDustPrintables1)
- Text Tag
Print the gift tag and text tag on the white textured cardstock
Cut a rectangle from the 12 x 12 cardstock with the following measurements:
- Width is the width of your treat, plus ½ inch
- Length is twice the length of your treat, plus 2 ½ inches.
Score at the lines as shown above.
Fold at the score lines in the center of the rectangle to “box” the bottom. (see photo below)
Fold (toward the outside of the Treat Holder) at the score lines at each end to make a “border” at the top of the treat bag. Glue the folded section down. (see photo below)
Optional: Trim the top edges of the treat bag with “crinkle cut” craft scissors.
Also optional: Use the “Template for Text Tag Backing” to cut out matching cardstock. Glue the Text Tag to the backing.
Punch holes in the top center of the treat holder, the gift tag and the text tag, and attach them to the treat holder with ribbon.
Add some double sided tape to the back of your treat, and attach it to the inside of the Treat Holder.
Done, and exactly the right size!
Hope this makes your life just a little less complicated!
