Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I have some fun Snowman Treat Holders for you. Those of you who know me also know that I almost never make treat holder kind of things. Truth be told, I have always been a little afraid of making 3-D things. I don’t consider myself a logical person, so I shy away from lots of folding and cutting and visualizing. It’s probably true with this as with so many other things that practice makes perfect.
Snowman Treat Holders
I think what really converted me to treat holders is that it can turn a rather simple thing into a very heartfelt and thoughtful gift. The way I made this it is also totally regiftable, just like a gift bag. That makes me especially happy. The recipient of my gift can also pay it forward now, even if they are not a paper crafter!
Pretty and Functional
The way the ribbon is tied around the chocolate bar makes it easy to take out of the package AND it looks great when it is still in the package. Don’t you love it when something is both pretty and functional?
My First Ever Box Design
I have to say that I am quite proud of the box that I designed. It was created completely without any help, just me playing with my ruler and my paper trimmer till I got it right. This might be the beginning of a new adventure.
I did a complete video tutorial of both of these projects in my private Facebook Group, Prime Time with the Pampered Stamper. This is my unique response to COVID and the fact that I can no longer offer in person classes. It is a great place to gather with stampers and teach, share and inspire. Of course there are also weekly Prize Patrol giveaways and a monthly free pdf tutorial with 16 projects. If you want to join, you CAN!! Click here and follow the steps.
I actually used a retired die from Blended Seasons bundle from a few years ago. The other supplies are Snow Wonder, Warm Hugs, misty moonlight ribbon and Flowers for Every Season twine as well as the cellophane gift bags from the holiday catalog.
What do you think? I would love to read your comments and find out whether or not you like making little boxes and treat holders.
If you live in Canada and order the Snow Wonder bundle from me using the host code then I will send YOU a free pdf tutorial with ten great cards and a home decor item.
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for joining me. I look forward to sharing my inspiration with you again on Monday. Hugs!
