Treat Holders are Oh, So Sweet

Today's project is a small candy holder with a gift card or business card slot, using Stampin' Up! Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The small treat box holds  3 Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Chocolates.  Wouldn't these be great to hand to someone special for the outstanding job they've done for you this year with a gift card tucked inside?  Or think of the fun you would have handing this to a fellow crafter you just struck up a conversation with while standing in line at the post office mailing your Thanksgiving or Christmas cards.             

Here's what I used to create these:  The sentiment is from the Cup of Christmas Stamp Set.  It is stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink.  The labels are from the Ornate Frame Dies.  I cut the outside frame in Gold Foil Sheets to match the gold foil wrapping on the candy.  I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch the opening so you can see the candy.  I didn't need to use a window sheet because the candy is large enough that it won't fall out.   I added a bow out of Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8" Striped Ribbon and attached it with Glue Dots.  

Cardstock:  11-1/4" X 7-3/4" (I started with a 12 X 12 Sheet of Whisper White)
On the Short Side, score at 1/2", 1-7/8".  Turn paper 180 degrees and score 1/2" and 1-7/8"
On the long side, score:  1/2", 1-7/8", 3-1/4", 4-5/8",  6" (score only down to the second score line), 8-3/8" and 10-3/4"  Turn the paper over and at the 6" mark on the long side, score down to the second score line.

DSP:  1 ea.  3-7/8" X 2-1/4", 2 ea 1-1/4" X 3-7/8", 2 ea-1-1/4 X 1-1/4".  
Hint:  I found it was easier to  add the Designer Series Paper while the box was not yet assembled.  Also, once the Designer Series Paper was in place, I re-punched the opening on the wrong side of the opening so that I could line up the punch in the same location as the first punch.

On the top portion of the treat box, I used Tear & Tape where the gift card slot opens and used it to hold down the two sides without the thumb slot.

I originally made this treat holder several years ago, and there are additional instructions and a link to a video showing cutting instructions in my original post.
