Challenge Reminder: Fall Frolic

Poppystamps November 2019 Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends, 

Candice here reminding you there is still time to participate in this month's blog challenge. Poppystamps blog challenges are fun and so easy to participate. When you link up a project to our challenge you are automatically entered to win a $20 gift certificate to the store.  You dont have to have a blog to link your design - you can link to Instagram, Flickr or any other on line gallery. This month's challenge link ends November 28. 

For a bit of inspiration with the challenge, I created this cute tag treat holder that can be used at your holiday place setting or gifted to your hostess at Thanksgiving. This treat holder is so easy to make and can be stuffed with candy or a homemade treat.  

November Challenge 1

To make this project, start by die cutting a tag from the largest tag from the double stitched tag frames set in some kraft cardstock. Remember to keep your tag and tag frame together as one piece. Next die cut a strip of leaves from the maple leaf side strips and stencil set from white cardstock. Separate the leaves from the strip by cutting them with your scissors. Next color the leaves with your distress oxide inks in festive berries, carved pumpkin, spiced marmalade, old olive and peeled paint to create the image of fall leaves. 

Set your tag and leaves aside, so you have space to create the treat holder. Cut a piece of coordinating kraft cardstock to 5 1/2 inches long by 2 3/4 inches wide. For the sake of my tutorial I am using white cardstock to display the instructions. 

Cutting and scoring paper 1

Next score your paper on the 5 1/2inch side at 1/4, 1, 4 1/2 and 5. Then on the 2 3/4 inch side, score the paper at 2 1/4.

 

Scoring the paper

Next with a pair scissors cut off the two end squares along the score lines. With the two remaining squares, snip only the top portion of the two remaining squares on the score line so that it can be folded inward and attached to the bottom flap. 

Cutting the ends

Next, while your paper is still flat, stamp your sentiment or greeting. I used the sentiment So very Thankful from the Autumn leaves stamp set. On the opposite side of the paper from your stamped image, fold all of your score lines to form an open box shape. Use either a strip of 1/4 inch score tape or 2 strips of 1/8 inch score tap on each of your folded flaps. Assemble the bottom portion of the box together first with the score tape.

Adding Score Tape

Now attach the open box to your tag using the score tape placed along the side flaps. Adhere your colored leaves to your box. Next fill your tag treat holder with candy, homemade baked goods, a gift card or whatever you little heart desires. The recipient will just love this adorable little holder as well as the gift. I filled my treat holder with a few Twix mini candy bars. My absolute favorite!
