It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a Color Challenge!
This weeks colors totally scream the holidays, don't they? And for me, most of my holiday card making is at least designed (now the completed cards...that's another thing. Guess what I'm doing this weekend?). But I digress.
I'm always looking for inexpensive treat packaging ideas - for co-workers, teachers, friends and family. And when my pre-order for the upcoming 2015 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog arrived this week, I reached for the NEW Ornate Tag Topper Punch to make this darling Ghirardelli Candy Treat Holder.
Instructions for Treat Holder:
- 5-1/2" x 2" cardstock
- Score at 2-5/8" & 2-7/8"
- important: score cardstock before punching
- Then punch both ends using NEW Ornate Tag Topper Punch
- 1-3/4" square of DSP (I used Maritime Designer Series Paper!)
- Fold and insert candy
- Tie off with ribbon/trim
- Give to all your friends!
As the "ornateness" (if that's a word) of the punch is hard to see, here's a closer look. Fun, huh?
Speaking of the new 2015 Occasions Catalog...if you're a customer of mine, you should be seeing your very own copy, arriving in your mailbox over the next few weeks. I just had a call today from someone who received hers in MN. You can start ordering from the new catalog beginning January 6th, 2015.
Happy Holidays ~Dawn O
