SO, these are the projects we did in a class in September. I thought it would be fun to do an all treat-holder night. Truthfully, I could do an all treat-holder class once a week for a year and not run out of fun ones to do... but people would start to throw things.

The matchbox is made using Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Matchbox die and the big shot. I added some Designer Series Paper from the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' kit, a tag stamped with the Holiday Best stamp set and a poinsettia made from Real Red and Old Olive cardstock, using the 5-petal flower punch. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy, as Annika would say!!

The ornament 'cookie pouch' is a super simple treat holder - you could put candy canes, a big cookie, a little note pad or anything you'd like in it. It's made with just half a sheet of cardstock and a strip of designer paper. I used Close to Cocoa and the flocked paper from Christmas Cocoa pack in the Holiday Mini. There's a medium cello bag inside. I embellished it using Delightful Decorations and Ornament punch, some silver elastic cord and some of the Mistletoe ribbon - all in the Holiday Mini Catalogue. You could really crank a lot of these out in a short time if you wanted to make something for your kids' classmates or teachers.

The Halloween one is made using a pattern I got on the Stampin' Up! demonstrator website. (one of the many benefits of demo-ship!) I used Basic Black or Dusty Durango cardstock, and for the record, the textured c/s works way better..., Only Orange or Black gros grain ribbon and Spooky Treats rub ons. I think these would make awesome Christmas Crackers - though you'd need to really love the people you're giving them to - they're simple, but a little time-consuming.

Fun stuff! No math was required in the making of these projects. Well, maybe just a little.
