Crafter’s Companion Supplies:

Other Supplies: 2 small brads; glue dots; double sided tape; inks; pearls

Step One: Print and cut the paper to 6″ x 10″

Step Two: Score at 1/2″ along the long side of the paper.

Step Three: Mark a small dot on the back side of the paper at the 5″ mark. This will be the pivot point for scoring, and all triangles will meet at this spot.

Step Four: Use the Special Treat Embossing Board to score the triangles that will make the treat holder. Match up a long side of the triangle along the scored line, and line up the apex of the triangle with the dot.

Step Five: Use the scoring tool to hold the paper on the board and at the apex and pivot the paper to line up the next triangle to connect to the first. Continue this method until four triangles are scored.

Step Six: Trim around the scored marks, leaving a 1/2″ tab under the first triangle.

Step Seven: Fold into a treat holder. Attach double sided tape to the tab to complete the holder. Attach a die cut handle to the sides of the holder with brads.

Step Eight: Stamp and die cut decorations for the front and add candies to the holder. Die cut and ink flowers and attach to random candies with glue dots.
