This is so cute - and so easy. Thanks! I'm going to start them early, and make a bunch for my February bunco group - with a Valentine theme.

Thanks for making me smile from ear-to-ear again, Becky! The flower treat is a perfect addition for this wonderful holder =)

Sweet! Your instructions were so clear. I wondered how that bow punch worked.
Vicki-Joy  |  Wed Jan 28, 2015 at 8:25 PM
I absolutely loved this tutorial. It was perfect for a newbie like me!
I think it is the perfect size for my favorite treats,the Geridelli squares!

Becky - this is such a cute and simple project! Of course, I wasn't paying attention to the folds to the center using the score lines...I took it literally to mean fold the ends to the center...DUH! I made 30 of these for "thank you" treats and enjoyed using up the pretty papers I have collected. I did a 2-slot ribbon punch below the top and tied it shut with a simple raffia bow. I can tell everyone that Twinings tea bags and Ghiradelli chocolates fit perfectly in the pockets. A cup of tea and a dark chocolate/strawberry candy warm these cold wintry days. Thanks for helping me get back my crafting mojo after a month's rest! This is a keeper!

Becky, this is so quick and easy to make. I am wondering about one step though. When you scored along the long edge was that at 1/2" or 1/4"? I tried the 1/2" and my "w" at the bottom was wider than yours appears to be. Then I tried it at 1/4" and it looked more like yours. I guess it really doesn't matter either way except at 1/2 " the pocket is smaller.

Good eye! Looking closely at the video, she did miss the 1/2" line and scored at 3/8". It's not a big difference - the wider you go, the smaller the pocket will be, but you'll have a better base for the treat holder to stand up on.
