Valentine Treat Holder

Hi there!

It was my turn again over on the InStyle Stamps blog to host Method Monday!  Last year, I had made these cute candy bar Valentine's Day treat holders & decided to show you how I made them!

The supplies you'll need:

- Scor-Pal (or any scoring tool)
- 1 sheet of cardstock 4" x 9 1/2"
- 1 sheet of cardstock 6 3/8" x 7"
- Colored image (Gidget)
- Ribbon
- Strong adhesive (I used red-line tape)
- Embellishments

Step 1:  With the 4" x 9 1/2" sheet of cardstock, Score along the long side at 6 1/2" & 6 3/4"
(hint: if you use Scor-Pal, place the edge at 1" and score at 4" and 4 1/4")

Step 2: Now turn the cardstock on the short side, and place the edge at the 3 1/2" mark & score at 4" & 4 1/4" and do the same to the other side

Step 3: Trim away the edges along the long end- as shown here

Step 4: Fold along score lines

Step 5: Glue the flaps around the back

Step 6: Set the pocket aside- with the other sheet of cardstock, along the 6 3/8" side score 3" on both sides

Step 7: Fold on score lines, adhere pocket & decorate!

Step 8: Finally- Decorate the front!
