Hershey Bar Holder

Cardstock: Real Red, Espresso
Stamp Set: Eat Chocolate
DSP: Love Impressions
Punches: Large Oval, Scallop Oval
Ribbon: Espresso Grosgrain

I demonstrated this fun little treat holder at January Stamp Club. This wasn't original idea, but I did simplify it. I'm always looking for the easiest route. ;)

The measurement on the base is 3.5" x 11". So you can get two from one sheet of cardstock. Then you fold your base in half long ways, at 5.5". Then fold down the front flap at 1.5".

Instead of taping the sides shut, I left them "open" and just counted on the ribbon to close the treat holder up. So the ribbon is wrapped around the back and exposed in the back. I think that's much easier than hassling with adhesives on the sides that may or may not stay shut. If you opt for adhesive, make sure it's STRONG...like SU's sticky strip.

These would make quick, easy treats for co-workers, students, family, friends, etc.
