Hershey Treat Holders
These treat holders for BOO Day (Halloween) hold the 6" Hershey Chocolate candy bar. In the past I have made the witch hats by Janet Baker using the Stampin Up Tree punch:
For the treat holders today I wanted to be able to use a witch hat but since it was on the front of my holders I needed it to be flat. Here are my two Hershey Treat Holders:
There are different patterns for these holders but I used the one on Splitcoast:
To make my witch hat so it was flat I used scrap card stocks to show how I did this. For the circle brim to the hat I used a 1" circle punch and put the black card stock into the punch as far as it would go. Punched out my circle:
Using a 2 1/4" circle punch I punched over the 1" circle:
Took this 'ring' piece to the trimmer and cut it in half -- this way I have a brim for another witch hat:
Using the Stampin Up Tree punch I punched out a tree using scrap chevron card stock. Then I put a glue dot on each lower corner of this tree and a glue dot on the trunk of the tree:
With the glue dots in place I took my half black circle and put that on the tree:
Added a bow I made using the Stampin Up Bow Builder punch:
To put the hat on my holder I used glue dots. Here are photos of each holder:
To begin with I suggest you watch this short video by Maria on the shortcuts to fabulous bows using this punch and your bows will not be so bulky:
LOVE her tips and ideas and it cuts the time making these bows in half. For my above holder I used SU black card stock, dotted card stock from Mikes, and fabric netting around the holder. For my witch hat I used black glittered card stock, black/white chevron card stock is Mikes, and the spider web paper for the bow was free as it was the shelf strip from Walgreens holiday aisle last Halloween that I picked up last year. Added a black crystal to the center of the bow. "Trick or Treat" is from SU Toxic Treats stamp set.
This holder I used SU purple card stock, green print is from the stash, M Stewart spider web border was used for the spider webs. Again the hat is black glittered card stock and the chevron print is from the stash. These holders go together quickly and make good use of holiday prints as a belly band. This holder I used satin orange ribbon.
These holders hold a regular candy bar -- 6" size -- and is good to make with ribbons or card stock prints you may not be fond of. Thanks to Janet for the witch hat pattern and to Maria for the great savings of time and glue dots with the bows! TFL and YOLO
