Fa-BOO-lous Mini Treat Holders

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad to be back! I have been dealing with shoulder pain since March of 2022. My doctor told me it's probably from cutting paper out for 28 years! That can certainly wear your shoulder out! I am taking things slow, so I can heal and get back to my love of paper crafting! I am excited to share these adorable treat holders with you! I LOVE Halloween and I am always looking to create a cute treat holder every year for my friends, customers, grandkids, and family! These did not disappoint! These were inspired from Pinterest, but I created my own design and special touch to each holder. 

These cute holders are so fun and easy to create! Just slip a mini candy bar, small bag of candy, or Ghirardelli chocolate inside! The recipient will love getting one of these little cuties! ;)

Make sure you order your Fa-BOO-lous collection today! This special is only available for a limited time!

Take the small thin cut and small piece of cardstock and cut it out on your die-cutting machine. You will punch holes on top of the holes once you have glued it to the holder. Set aside.

Score your holder following the measurements above. 

Before you crease all scored lines, cut slits on each side shown below. 

After you have cut slits on each side, cut off each long-scored piece. Your holder should look something like this.

Now you will cut slits to the furthest scored line. Do this on both sides. 

Cut end of flaps off on scored line. 

Cut both flaps on an angle. It should look something like this. 

Use your bone folder and crease all lines.

Take your adhesive tape and add to both edges of holder shown in photo. Adhere and create your "box". Using your corner rounder and round the top edges of holder and largest B&T piece. Glue your small B&T square to the front of holder and inside.  

Add your stickers of choice to the treat holder front with 3-D foam tape. Glue small double circle die piece to the top. Punch holes in the circles with a hole punch. Add your choice of ribbon and feed through holes made from the thin cut. 
Add clear shimmer to eyes, nose, and mouth of your pumpkins and skeleton.
