Tiny Easter ~ Treat Holder Tutorial

Hello everyone!

It’s time for another tutorial for C.C. Designs,  and I’ve got a cute little treat holder to share with you all.  For this project I used the super adorable Llama from the Tiny Easter Clear Stamp Set.  This little guy is so stinkin’ cute!!

From C.C. Designs Easter Paper Pack:
(2) cut to 2 ¾” x 2”
(2) cut to 2” x ¾”
(2) cut to 2” x ¼”

10” of double sided ribbon
Strong double sided tape – I use Scor-tape
Double sided foam tape
Bone folder

Scalloped Circle Dies
Small die of your choice – used to make hole for the candy treat
Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Caramel Bunnies

  • Score the White Cardstock (2 ¼” x 9 ½”) as shown (Do not fold yet)

Before you fold your piece on the score lines you will need to cut out the opening for the candy to sit in.  Die cut from the right (front) side of your paper.

Flip the paper over and place Scor-tape to the top ½” (above the treat opening).

Adhere the plaid paper to all the white pieces with adhesive of choice, and attach the Llama to the white circle with double sided foam tape.

Adhere the layered pieces to the large white base as shown.  The ribbon will need to be adhered before the layered piece can be attached in that section.

Fold and crease all the score lines, the top score line will fold to the front and all the rest will fold to the back.

Remove the backing to the tape from the back and attach it 5/8” down from the fold line.  Adhere the last remaining layered piece on top of it.

Insert the candy (Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Caramel Bunnies), close and tie bow.  Make sure you tie it loose enough that the cover can slide in and out.

To decorate I colored the adorable little Llama from the Tiny Easter Stamp Set and cut her out with the coordinating cut it out dies.

~Copics~
Llama:  E43/42/41/40
Aquas:  BG13/11/10
Pinks:  R32/30/00
Yellow:  Y13

I cut out a scalloped circle of white, cut out the Llama with the Tiny Easter Outline Metal Die.  I then attached the Llama to the scalloped circle with double sided foam tape.  This was attached to the front of the treat holder with Scor-tape.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today!

Happy Friday everyone!

It’s Inspiration Friday at La-La Land Crafts once again and this week the theme is ‘Anything Goes’.

In Style Marci‘ was such a perfect stamp for me to work with for this week.  My Mom taught me how to sew at the age of 5, and with 3 daughters I have sewn many dresses throughout the years.  I often find a tape measure draped around my neck as I am busy stitching away.

I love ribbon and lace so I knew I had to include them in my design.  The lace was quite wide and a bit had to be cut off.  From what I cut off I gathered with needle and thread and attached it to the bottom of the tutu with very sticky tape from the backside.  I attached little colored gems to the pin cushion for a little sparkle.

I added tiny white dots to her glasses and pants with a white gel pen.  Nuvo Aqua Shimmer in Glitter Gloss was added to the scissors and to her glasses for some added sparkle.
