Blog Hop - Easter Candy Gifts!

Welcome to this month's Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Wings!
Paper Wings is a great community site devoted to The Angel Company.


I decided to make an Easter Candy Gift Holder and give you the full details on how to make this cute and fast item. I think you'll agree that these are so simple, cost effective, and you can whip them up really fast.

1. You start by cutting a piece of cardstock to 4" x 12" (you can make 3 of these from one 12" x 12" sheet of cardstock). The heavier the cardstock the better.


2. Then you score it at 4", 6", and 10" using your ScorPal ... see above (I made pen lines to demonstrate where scores are ... so you can see)


3. Then make a 3" circle in the panel shown above. I used a circle Nestability.


4. Then take the Corner Chomper and 1/2" corner round each corner ... fold on scores and punch through both layers. The Corner Chomper works great for this project ... it goes through chipboard or multiple layers with ease!


Here is what it looks like after you've corner rounded.


5. Then cut a piece of transparency or acetate to 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and attach it to cover the circle opening.


6. Using a 1" circle punch, punch a half circle in the top and across the bottom edge.


Here is what it looks like after you've punched the half circles.


7. Then it's time to decorate. I used the bunny and sentiment from the Hoppity Skippity set. I colored the bunny with my copic markers.


8. Finally fill it with your favorite treat (I used Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs). I use candy/treat bags that you can find at your local craft store in the candy/cake decorating aisle. They are about 4" x 10" long. I then tied it with pretty ribbon (I used Toodle Loo ribbon by TAC) and trimmed the excess bag.

ENJOY!!!
