Simple Easter Treat Holder

Since Easter is quickly approaching, I want to share a simple Easter Treat Holder that you can make last minute.  This is the final project from this month’s class.  Don’t you think it’s perfect to highlight the bunny’s face on the Hershey’s Easter Candy?  What’s great about the project is you can easily alter it to hold any small, flat candy bar.   

Simple Easy Treat Holder

The treat holders feature the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  Use the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack to embellish with flowers.  Below are details on recreating the project.

Project Materials:
  • Granny Apple Green Cardstock: 9-1/2″ x 2″ score at 4-1/2″ & 5″ and one piece 3-1/2″ x 1″ score at 1/4″ on each side then cut in half at 1-3/4″ so you will have 2 pieces 1-3/4″ x 1″ 
  • Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper: 1-7/8″ x 4-3/8″ 
  • Cardstock to match Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 3″ 
  • Scraps of Whisper White for sentiment and desired colors to punch small flower embellishments.  The colors used above are Berry Burst, Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight & Grapefruit Grove.
  • Detailed Trio Punch
  • Best Bunny Photopolymer Stamp Set for Surprise! sentiment
  • Itty Bitty Greetings Clear Mount Stamp Set for Easter Greetings sentiment
  • Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (counting from smallest die to largest the following dies are used: 1, 3, & 4 
  • Classic Label Punch for Easter Greetings Sentiment
  • Garden Green Classic Stamp Pad
  • Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins

Gingham Treat Basket

Ready for another treat project from the All About Easter class?  Today’s post, Gingham Treat Basket, highlights the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.  There are various versions of this basket style on Pinterest.  I do not recall where I saw the dimensions used but it’s a simple basket that is fun to embellish.  I love the look of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (DSP) and selected the Lemon Lime Twist color for the basket.  To embellish the basket, the Daisy Punch was used to punch multiple daisies from the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala DSP.  The color of the Gingham Gala DSP are perfect for Spring.  Keeping with the theme, a pick featuring the Fable Friends bunny with a crown of flowers adds the finishing touch.  

Creating the basket:
  1. Score one page of the Gingham Gala at 2″ and 4″, rotate and score again at 2″ and 4″.
  2. On one side, cut along the score lines just to the point where the score lines intersect.  Rotate paper 180° and again, cut along the score line to the point where the score lines intersect.
  3. Use a bone folder to burnish along the score lines.
  4. Cut a 1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of coordinating cardstock to use as handle.
  5. Form basket by pulling the cut pieces to the middle of the 4″ panel on each side and overlapping. Place handle atop the pieces and staple to secure.  
  6. Optional: To cover the staples inside of the basket, punch a  1″ circle punch of the gingham paper and adhere with adhesive over the exposed staples.
Embellishing the Basket:
  1. Punch four daisies from the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.
  2. Sponge the edges of each daisy using Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Pad and a sponge dauber.
  3. Use a bone folder to curl the daisy petals.  Layer two daisies and connect with a stampin’ dimensional. Repeat with other daisy petals (embellishment is on both sides of basket)
  4. Create daisy center using the Bitty Blooms Punch Bundle to cut a flower from a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Attach using a mini glue dot.  Add a Glitter Enamel Dot to the center. 
  5. Cut leaves from Lemon Lime Twist and Vellum Cardstocks using the Foliage Frame Framelits Dies. 
  6. Attach leaves to back of the daisy using mini glue dots.
  7. Use Stampin Dimensionals to attach a daisy to each basket side at the handle.   
Making the Bunny Pick:
  1. Stamp the rabbit from Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Shimmery White cardstock.
  2. Color using an Aqua Painter, Crumb Cake and Lemon Lime Twist inks.
  3. Fussy cut the rabbit using paper snips.
  4. Create a crown of flowers by punching three Daffodil Delight flowers (two are solid cardstock and one is Gingham Gala DSP) using the Bitty Blooms Punch Bundle.  Use leaf in Bitty Blooms to punch leaves. 
  5. Attach the flowers and leaves to the rabbit using mini glue dots, slightly cupping the flowers to fit.  
  6. Add a basic rhinestone jewel to the center of each flower.
  7. On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp Enjoy (from Dear Doily) using the black ink.  Punch with 2″ circle punch so that the word is to the left side of circle with room to add the bunny.
  8. Punch a 2-1/4″ circle of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to use as base for pick.  With multipurpose adhesive, glue pick to the base. (since I wanted a pick slightly longer than a regular toothpick, I shortened a four-inch bamboo skewer to approximately 2-3/4″ by breaking off a piece from the non-pointed end)
  9. Attach the Enjoy circle to the pick base using stampin’ dimensionals.
  10. Finish by adding the bunny. The treats and paper shreds help to hold pick in place.

Easter Treat Holders

Another project from the All About Easter class earlier this week were Easter Treat Holders.  The first project holds a carrot shaped treat holder.  Last month at our team meeting, we were able to make a similar holder.  Thank you Gloria for the idea! It is a project that I knew would be perfect to include in the All About Easter class. The carrot treat containers are available at Dollar Tree and the boxes are perfect to hold the carrot erect.   Another of the treat projects is a CASE from Angie Juda.  For both projects, simply cut and score cardstock to create the holder.  Refer to the details below the photos for more details.

Don’t you agree each box is perfect for holding the Easter treats? Either of the treat holders are perfect to use as table favors.  Or just use when you want to give someone a special Easter treat.  The carrot treat holder is sized large enough that you can add a non-candy item such as nuts or a package of garden seeds.

Each box is quick and easy so you can make multiples at a time.  Simply cut the cardstock, score, cut the opening, and fold.  Add Designer Series Paper and embellish.  How Sweet It Is and Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper are used for the projects above.  

Carrot Treat Box Details
  1. Start with a 2-3/4″ x 11″ piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock.  Score the cardstock at 4″, 6-1/4″, 7-1/2″ and 9-3/4″. 
  2. Cut selected designer series paper to 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8 and a 2-3/8 x 1-1/8″.
  3. To create the cutout to insert carrot, use the 2″ circle punch or the layering circle dies to cut a hole in the cardstock.  The panel for the hole is between the 7`1/2″ and 9-3/4″ score lines.   
  4. Attach the designer series paper as shown in the photo above. 
  5. Apply Tear and Tape adhesive to the smaller end panel and seal to form box shape.
  6. Stamp the bunny and carrot onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  The stamps are from the Best Bunny Photopolymer Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog.  Highlight the bunny with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker and punch using the 1-1/2″ circle punch.  Color the carrot with the Pumpkin Pie and Granny Apple Green Stamper Write markers.  You’ll need to fussy cut the carrot.  Use the 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch to cut Pineapple Punch cardstock. Attach  the bunny onto the scallop circle with adhesive and add the carrot using a mini-glue dot.  
  7. Embellish by adding slip a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon and use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the bunny scallop piece over the ribbon.

Visit Angie Juda at My Chic ‘n Scratch for details on creating the Easter Chick treat box.  I embellished her design by adding flowers using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack from the Occasions Catalog.  The finishing touch is adding green paper shred under the chick.
