by Beate Johns

Create a cover for your treats. When you pull on the ribbon on top of the cover, the treat will be appear.

Supplies

  • 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

  • Additional cardstock for decoration
  • Embellishments

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Score 6" x 7" piece of cardstock at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" on the 6" side.

  2. Step 2

    Stamp or wheel entire cardstock front.

  3. Step 3

    Score cardstock for the belly band at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".

  4. Step 4

    Decorate the front of belly band.

  5. Step 5

    Apply Sticky Strip™ to the 1/2" strip on front cover.

  6. Step 6

    Turn cardstock cover so the inside is facing up and add Sticky Strip™ to the bottom of the 2 3/4" wide outer panel.

  7. Step 7

    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.

    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.

  11. Step 11

    Center the candy bar between the ribbon ends, on top of the ribbon running through both holes.

  12. Step 12

    Push the candy bar all the way into the pouch.

  13. Step 13

    Tie the ribbon and the Pull Treat Pouch is done.
    Simply pull the ribbon (no need to untie) and the candy will appear.

Variations

    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.

Maybe I'm dense, but I don't get the last part, pull the ribbon, no need to untie... do you literally tear the paper where the slot punch is used when you pull the ribbon?

Wow. Really great idea. My daughter knows what she is going to give her friends for Valentines Day. Purely Pomegranite and the Pumpkin Pie is a really nice touch.

This is great! We've made them at Stamper's 10 for individual pouches of Apple Cidar, but I really think this is a great shift to make it fun for all the males in my house. They all make chocolate their religion, so I can't go wrong with this one. smile

Can someone tell me where to buy an inexpensive slot punch like the one shown in this tutorial?
Thanks.

I'm also a bit confused about pulling the ribbon to liift the candy. Would u please explain this in more detail. If the ribbon is around the candy bar lengthwise then thru the slots on top, how do u lift without untieing the ribbon.

Thanks

patmc- Stampin'Up!'s slot punch is only $5.95! Just contact a demonstrator, like me!
juli-when you pull the ribbon, the ribbon slides within the punch slot, drawing up the candy bar to the point where the bottom of the ribbon and bar meet the slots.

Beate-this is truly beautiful work! Great color Combo!

You do awesome projects!!
This is great, going to make it in the a.m.

Also, I just saw the Riley Easter Card you made, just adorable. Where can I purchase this stamp when it becomes available in Feb?

Great directions. This is the first time I have been able to do a project without someone showing me how to do it. I have made 5 pull treats this afternoon. Thanks!!!

Thanks for all of the wonderful projects.
