When I saw this cute treat holder online I wanted to try to recreate it for my Thanksgiving table. The original (from the talented Lori Heiling) was a Christmas design. I searched my stamp sets for something that said Thanksgiving or Fall and finally decided on the adorable little scarecrow from the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set.
The little treat holder is SO simple. Just start with a piece of card stock that is 2″ x 8″. Score at 3 1/4″ and 4 3/4″ and then punch the ends with your Scallop Tag Topper Punch. Fold along the score lines and add some ribbon to keep it closed! That’s it!!! So simple. So cute! 🙂
I wrapped my Hershey nuggets with the Petals & Paisley Designer Series Paper. I put down a little strip of Tear & Tape and then placed two Hershey Nuggets side by side on the bottom of the treat holder (vertically). Then I put a little piece of Tear & Tape on the bottom of a third Nugget and placed on top of the other two going in the other direction (horizontally).
To tie my wrapped Nuggets in with the focal point I punched out a 1 3/4″ circle of the same designer paper and adhered it to the front of my treat holder. Then it was time to stamp, color and punch out my adorable little scarecrow with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. The little crow finishes the project off perfectly, although I did have to fussy cut him! 🙂
So not that I’ve shared this adorable little treat holder with you I have to confess that I’m not using him on my Thanksgiving table. I’ll show you that tomorrow.
