Ladies 2-4-5 Treat Holders Thursday Class

The ladies at Christ the King are making candy/treat holders for the fall season...  We normally meet and make cards monthly, but decided to change it up a bit this month.  So, instead of two cards, we will make two treat/candy holders!  Great for classroom gifts, teachers, and scouting... now what child wouldn't want to receive one of thes special little gifts.. Hmmm.. one of them is chocolate.. hmmm...

This treat container is a 3-nugget box.  The nuggets are each wrapped with 1" x 3" Designer Series paper which has been stamped with the pumpkin face from the dormant Autumn Harvest stamp set.

The box base, of soft suede card stock was cut at 2 3/8" x 4" and scored at 1/2" on all four sides.  Clipping in to the cut line on two parallel sides, you then form a box bottom easily, and sturdily with just a dot or two of tombow multi adhesive. 

The outside "wrapper" was cut from Naturals Ivory Cardstock measuring 4 3/4" x 3" and then scored at 1", 1.5", 3", and 3.5".  The edges were sponged and sponge-daubered with old olive ink to enhance the floating pumpkin image.

I just love my large oval punch.. it makes the best pumpkins!! I sponge daubered the pumpkin pie pieces with dusty durango classic ink, and stamped one of the pieces with the cute little pumpkin face from autumn harvest with soft suede classic ink too.

Boho blossoms has a great little punch which works very well as the pumpkin topper too...

Well, it's always 2 items for $5.00 at CTK... and here is the second 'treat' holder we made.. this cute little spider bearing candy corn!

I hope the ladies love their treats tomorrow... they can easily replicate these as classroom Moms... and the children will love the special sweet treats too!

Pin It!
