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
Bone folder
Glue dots
Red sticky tape

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'
