12 Days of Christmas Treat Holders-Day 3!

Okay, I can not go a whole year without making a "Santa Suit Something or Other"! How easy to decorate the front of a card or treat holder. Welcome to my "12 Days of Christmas Treat Holders Day #3". Today's treat holder holds two mini chocolate bars:

These are the supplies you will need for today:
  • Real Red, Basic Black & Whisper White Cardstock
  • Champagne Glimmer Paper
  • Candy Dots
  • Simply Scored Scoring Tool
  • Tombow Multipurpose Glue
  • 1" Square Punch
  • Postage Stamp Punch
  •  Paper Snips
First you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 9 1/2". I used Real Red Cardstock. Score on the long side at 2 3/4", 3 1/4", 6 1/4" and 6 3/4". Fold on all 4 score lines and then set aside:

We will now create a little box for the inside to hold the 2 chocolate bars. You will need a 2nd piece of Real Red Cardstock measuring 4 7/8" x 2 1/2". Score on 3 sides as shown at 1/2" and 1". Remove the tabs as shown by cutting with your Paper Snips:

Apply Tombow Multipurpose Glue to the 4 areas shown above and glue to form your box as shown below:

Once your box sides are glued, add Tombow Multipurpose Glue to the 3 flaps as shown and press and glue to the inside of your 1st cardstock piece as shown below:

This is what your chocolate bars look like when inserted inside your treat holder:

Fold your box closed and glue a strip of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 1" x 4 1/4" centered on your box front on the top flap. Add 2 Candy Dots for the buttons:

For the belt you will need a piece of Basic Black Cardstock measuring 1" x 8". Wrap around the box to keep it closed and glue the two overlapped ends together towards the back of the box. Make sure the belt is not too tight so it can slide off to open the box.

Using Champagne Glimmer Paper, cut out one square using the 1" Square Punch and keep the piece with the hole. Using the Postage Stamp Punch, center the hole in your punch and cut the belt buckle shape. Glue in place using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

Stay tuned for Day 4 tomorrow!
