Candy Holder Card Tutorial ~ Challenge

I put together the following tutorial for the weScrap Love Fest Cop and wanted to share it with all of you:

Candy Holder Card:
Gather up some supplies:
patterened paper (I used Basic Grey Bittertsweet)
die cuts or stamps
ink (optional)
foam dots
slit punch, knotch and die or exacto knife
small candy (ie M&M's)
score tool
1. Cut your cardstock or double sided paper to the following: 8 1/2 by 4 1/4.
2. Score at 3 and 6 1/4 inch.
3. Fold into eachother.

4. Cut a strip of patterned paper aprox. 2 x 4 and adhere it to the front flap. Ink if desiered.

5. Using your slit punch, tool or exacto knife make slits on the inside middle portion of the card to hold your candy. You may need to place your candy as a guide.

6. Wrap your ribbon around the top portion of the card and make a knot or bow.

7. Mat your chosen die cut with coordinating cardstock or paper. You can also choose to stamp an image on cardstock and mat that if you do not have any die cuts! You can also print something off from your computer.

8. Use pop up foam dots to put your sentiment on the front. It adds dimension and allows the person to open the card easier.

VIOLA!! A sweet little card to hold some sweets for someone special.
