Create a cover for your treats. When you pull on the ribbon on top of the cover, the treat will appear.
- 6" x 7" piece of cardstock for candy cover
- 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of cardstock for belly band (optional)
- Scoring tool
- Sticky Strip™
- Ribbon (about 30" needed)
- Big Hershey™ bar
- Hole punch
- Additional cardstock for decoration
Score 6" x 7" piece of cardstock at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" on the 6" side.
Stamp or wheel entire cardstock front.
Score cardstock for the belly band at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".
Decorate the front of belly band.
Apply Sticky Strip™ to the 1/2" strip on front cover.
Turn cardstock cover so the inside is facing up and add Sticky Strip™ to the bottom of the 2 3/4" wide outer panel.
Remove the red liner from the adhesive. Fold the thin glue tab, then the 2 3/4" panel over the middle panel to create a pouch.
Punch a hole/slot in the middle of top part of your pouch. Choose your punch according to the ribbon size being used.
Finish decorating the pouch. Here, the belly band was adhered to the pounch, then ribbon and additional stamped images were added.
(For a close up of the heart and instructions on how it was colored, please check in my gallery.)
Thread the ribbon through the hole on top of the pouch. Make sure the ribbon is the same length on both sides.
Center the candy bar between the ribbon ends, on top of the ribbon running through both holes.
Push the candy bar all the way into the pouch.
Tie the ribbon and the Pull Treat Pouch is done.
Simply pull the ribbon (no need to untie) and the candy will appear.
Make a pouch for different sized candy
Measure the width of your candy. Add an inch to it. That will be your pouch front. You will need 2 x pouch front inches plus 1/2" for glue tab.
Measure the length of your candy. Add 2 1/4" to the length.
