Gum Halloween Treat Holder


Can you believe that Halloween is coming up so quickly! Here is a Halloween Gum Holder that I made by copying the template from my friend Colleen. She made me one last year and I just took the dimensions and made my own with this year's products.

Here are the dimensions of the project:
Take a strip of 10" x 2 1/2" Score at 2 1/4", 2 3/4", 6 1/4", 6 3/4".

Ingredients to make the project:
Stamp Set: Pumpkin Patch
Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black and Cast-a-Spell Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Basic Black Brads, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Velcro Dots
Tools: Curly Label Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Word Window, Crop-a-dile

Special Touches on the Project:
I would definatley reinforce the top where you thread the ribbon to make the handle. It helps so that way when you thread the ribbon, you do not ribbon the project. The inside punch the word window and then adhere above the top of the punch with sticky strip.

I love this, Stasia! I've seen similar ideas in the stamping/blogging world, but love yours because of the fun flap! Too cute! I want one for myself! Thanks for sharing!
