Isn’t this threesome cutie patootie? I had a ball making these simple Ghirardelli treat holders. They are inspired by a Hershey’s nuggets holder in my Stampin’ Success demonstrator magazine. I simply modified the size for a Ghirardelli square and decorated my way!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- The bones of this Ghirardelli holder are simply a 5 1/2″ x 2″ (just a smidge under 2″) piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
- It’s scored at 2 5/8″ and 2 7/8. Pretty easy so far, right?
- SNEAK PEEK! The magic happens when you insert each end (slightly less than 2″ wide for a perfect fit) into the NEW Stampin’ Up! Angled Tag Topper Punch. It makes perfect cuts for a tag, bookmark and more. It even pops in the holes that make it ready for the finishing touch of ribbon! The Angled Tag Topper Punch will be available Jan. 3 when the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog begins.
- SNEAK PEEK! I added a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine, threaded through the holes created by the Angled Tag Topper Punch. The Gold Baker’s Twine will be in the Occasions Catalog and available for purchase Jan. 3
- I used used a glue dot on each side of the Ghirardelli squares to fold in and adhere the sides of the packaging. Looks tidier to me that way.
- SNEAK PEEKS! Touches of the new Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape (Occasions Catalog) make adding these darling gold patterns a snap. Two upcoming Occasions Catalog stamp sets were also used, Happy Watercolor (“thank you”) and Perfect Pennants (heart).
PLAYING FAVORITES! Each one of these holders has a slightly different personality. Please leave me a comment below with your favorite!
