Tag Punch Treat Holder

I really wanted to showcase both of the Tag Topper Punches at the February Make and Take. So I made this lovely little treat box which happens to be the perfect size to hold two Ghirardelli chocolates (Yum!). I love those! Especially the dark chocolate sea salt caramel! I've seen a number of these floating around in blog land lately and wanted to add my own spin on it. So here is a fun tutorial for you! 

  • Cherry Cobbler Card Stock 2” x 7-7/8”
  • Retro Fresh DSP 1” x 7-7/8”
  • Retro Fresh DSP 1-1/4” x 5-1/4”
  • 16” Whisper White Baker’s Twine
  • 13” Coastal Cabana Sweet Sorbet Twine
  • Stamps: Banner Blast
  • Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry
  • Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Banner Punch, Simply Scored
Take the Cherry Cobbler card stock and place it on your Simply Scored with the 7-7/8" edge against the top. Now score at 3-1/2" and 4-1/8". Use some glue stick to add your 1" wide strip of DSP onto the Cherry Cobbler card stock and fold on the score lines. Now punch both ends of your card stock strip with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

Take the 1-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Retro Fresh DSP and place it on your Simply Scored with the 5-1/4" edge against the top. Score at 1”, 1-5/8”, 3-5/8”, and 4-1/4”. Use some glue stick to glue one end of the strip onto the inside of the tag punched shape as shown. Line up the bottom edge of the DSP with the score line on the tag. Also line up the score line in the DSP with the edge of the tag. 

Fold the DSP around and glue the other end onto the inside of the tag as shown.

Now add a little bit of glue stick onto the other end of the tag shape and press it down onto the DSP to close the little box.

Insert your chocolates into the lovely little pocket then thread the twine through the slot at the top and tie it into a bow. Take the white baker's twine and wrap it around the top of the tag twice and tie it into a knot. Then use Paper Snips to trim the ends of the twine close to the knot. 

Stamp three of the banners from Banner Blast onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock in Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, and Crushed Curry ink. Take the small heart image and stamp it onto the love banner in Cherry Cobbler ink. Then punch out the banners with the Banner Punch and stick each banner onto the treat holder with a Stampin' Dimensional. 

Just for a little added glam add some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details into the heart stamped on the love banner.

Super cute and a super sweet little gift to give a special someone.
