When I have candy on hand I have to make my treat holders fast or else the candy will get eaten!!! This cute candy slider is inspired by Terri Gaines.
The base for the candy holder should be cardstock or a thick pattern paper cut 2 by 8-1/2 and scored at 4 and 4-1/2. Punch each end with the scallop tag topper punch and fold on the score lines.
Next, the designer series paper (DSP) is 2-3/4 by 5-1/2. If you want to score this before adhering to the base, score at 1-1/4, 1-3/4, 4-1/4 and 4-3/4. I liked the bats from the Toil & Trouble DSP to coordinate with my Batty for you sentiment.
I colored my elephant in his costume using the dark Smokey Slate and Rich Razzleberry Stampin Blends. For best results when coloring with Blends, Stampin’ Up! recommends using the Momento ink pad and allowing time to dry before coloring.
The elephant was punched with a 2” circle punch and then layered on the Pumpkin Pie Starburst punch. I was planning to put a Reese’s candy inside … but they are gone!
Last step for your slider treat is to feed the ribbon straight through both holes. Set the candy in between the flaps and push down into the holder. Top your treat with a bow or knot and give it a slide in and out to make sure it will work once it’s gifted.
There’s still time to shop and make these treat holders before Halloween creeps up!
