Pull-Up Treats

by Beate Johns

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
  • Stamps
  • Scissors
  • Ink
  • Hole punch
  • Additional cardstock for decoration
  • Embellishments


  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.

  8. Step 8

    Punch a hole/slot in the middle of top part of your pouch. Choose your punch according to the ribbon size being used.

  9. Step 9

    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.)

  10. Step 10

    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.



    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.

    Leave it open
    Leave out step six and leave the bottom of your pouch open.

That is so beautiful, I'm going to make one of these for a girlfriend instead of a thank you card!

it does not say which oval punch was used in step 9 it only states (then ribbon and additional stamped images were added.) and the stamped image of (you mean everything to me) is stamped on an oval punch piece........no mention as to which size oval punch was used............thank you

How did you color the heart embellishment. It is the most interesting shading technique I've seen in awhile, and was wondering whether you used markers, colored pencils, plain ink? Please share!
Laura  |  Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 11:28 AM
that response was not to my question and as i stated before the tutorial does not state which size oval punch was used
Betsy  |  Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 11:33 AM
This is so pretty. What a great combo of colors. I might make some for my friends for Valentine's Day.
Jennie Portonova  |  Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 11:41 AM
I can't tell from the pictures - does the 'glue tab' go on the inside or the outside of the back panel? Thanks!
Theresa  |  Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 11:41 AM
I would love to know what technique was used for the heart punch. That is stunning!
Leigh Anne  |  Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 11:45 AM
I saw another project like this except they took their crimper and put a few crimps on the bottom giving it a more finished look. you might have to have a bigged peice of card stock to do that though.
Brittany  |  Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 11:47 AM
I was wondering about the Heart coloring too! Please explain!!!!
Amy  |  Wed Jan 23, 2008 at 11:48 AM
I added a link to a close up of the heart to step 9. You will find instructions there.

For a complete recipe of what I used (including the punch sizes), please click on the link on the bottom of the tutorial for the gallery on pull treats. My treat pouch is posted there.
