Savannah's Birthday Treats

Today is Savannah's day to bring in treats at school, and it's also her birthday celebration in school. Besides the "healthy" snack she's taking in, I wanted to send in something for a birthday treat. I was blog surfing this past week and found this ADORABLE treat holder on Angie Kennedy Juda's blog. When I made them this weekend, I had to make up my own measurements since she didn't have that listed yet, but I saw today that Angie put up an awesome video tutorial! My version ended up being a little bigger than Angie's, but I was going by the size of the little bags of Skittles I was putting in them. I started with a 3.5"x6.5" piece of cardstock and scored at 2", 3" and 5.5". I put a piece of sticky strip inside the holder so that the bag of Skittles wouldn't slide out. To hold them closed, I put a staple that is covered up by the bug. I'd probably use velcro or something like that if I weren't doing it for kids, but I know they'll probably tear it open to get the candy anyway. (GASP!) LOL So I made 26 of these and they really did go very fast. So, follow the link above to see Angie's video tutorial, and you can make them a little smaller like hers or a little bigger like mine. . .or a size all your own to fit the treats that you want to use! :) Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Bugs and Fishes (Paper Pretties), Bugs and Kisses (SU), Hugs and Kisses (Cornish Heritage Farms); Paper- Pure Poppy (PTI), Basic Black (SU), white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches, scallop punch, Real Red marker (SU), lollipop ribbon; Finished treat measures approx. 3.5"x2.75"

Absolutely adorable! I've made these before for my little girl's birthday party faovrs and have used magnetic closures hidden well beneath the scallop circle. Yours turned out much nicer due to your choice in solid colored card stock and ribbon handle. Thank you for the tutorial. Just lovely.
