A Sweet Treat for You!

2.14.2008


So, yesterday my sweet friend Joella invited me over to play a bit in her studio and we ended up making some Valentine goodies. They really turned out cute and I thought that I would share with you here what it is that we did, because you are all my sweet friends too (and it is Valentine's Day after all!). We made little Pull Treat covers (a little envelope thingy perfect for housing a Hershey bar or something similar in size). Here is a picture of the one that I made for Ethan.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Supplies:

6" x 7" piece of cardstock for candy cover2 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of cardstock for belly band (optional)Scoring tool
Sticky Strip (adhesive)
Ribbon (about 30" needed)
Big Hershey™ bar

2. Score cardstock for the belly band at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
3. Apply adhesive to the 1/2" strip on front cover
4. Turn cardstock cover so the inside is facing up and add adhesive to the bottom of the 2 3/4" wide outer panel
5. Fold the thin tab, then the 2 3/4" panel over the middle panel to create a pouch and stick together by applying pressure
