Ferrero Rocher Holder


Talk about dusting off the brain to figure these numbers out.... but after my second try I got it -- so here is a holder I made for Ferrero Rocher "chocolates" (as their label reads):


To begin with my sample in the "how to" photos is white/GP. Supplies for this treat holder:

Solid card stock
Printed card stock
Red foil card stock
1 3/8" circle punch
Scalloped Tag Topper punch
Heart punch
Greeting stamp
Scoreboard
Bone folder
Ribbon
Twine
Glue dots
Red sticky tape
ATG

For this sample holder I used a piece of white/GP card stock. Cut this 2" wide by 11" long. With the long edge at the top of the scoreboard, (I used my M Stewart scoreboard), I scored this piece at:

3 3/8, 5 1/2;, 6 1/4, 8 1/4, and again at 9.

Use a bone folder to crease all scored lines. This photo shows the scored lines:


On my holder I decided to use the printed card stock for the back to my holder so the print shows behind my piece of chocolate. I cut the printed piece 2" x 3 3/8". Put the printed card stock on the holder in the section by the first scored line of 3 3/8". Used the ATG for that and then I trimmed off the printed paper to equal the end of my white/GP.  Once the printed card stock was on the scored piece I  punched out the tag top:


Now for the circle for the candy to fit into -- I used scrap pink card stock to show better in my photo and punched out a 1 3/8" circle. Put a glue dot on the back of that and centered this circle on my holder so when I punched the hole it would be centered:



Then I used red sticky tape and put a couple of pieces on my holder to hold it together -- on my holders I used more tape but did not want to waste it for my sample photo -- :0) ....


Removed the red sticky strip and folded the holder into the shape following the scored lines:


And added the Ferrero Rocher chocolate:


Once the holder was made I stamped and cut out my greeting:


After the greeting was on my holder I added a red foil heart piece. Put a piece of red ribbon through the tag top piece and tied a piece of red and white twine on that. Decided to use a small piece of my printed card stock (from Mikes) and I used the ATG to put that on the front of my holder:


Off to make more holders ..... TFL and YOLO'

Thanks for the nice comments on the Ferrero Rocher Holder. The good thing about this holder is the decorative papers you use can be used for all holidays or birthdays. I also like that it is free standing and that it holds a Ferrero Rocher treat! Makes for a nice place maker at a holiday table as well. Thanks for your blog visit! Candee P
