So here's another door hanging treat holder I made (and before anyone asks, yes I will show you a tutorial, in fact it's right underneath this pic ready and waiting!)
I've made this one for Papertake's challenge which is CUTE. I think that the image and the treat holder itself are cute. I've used some Stampin up card in Rose Red with the matching DSP. The image is another Bugaboo Turtle. I really like that the shells match the themes.
But if you've been waiting for the tutorial, here it is (I shall refer to the colours I've used here so that you can follow easier but you can use whatever you want):
What you will need:
1 piece of cardstock for the base cut at 3" by 11"
1 piece of black card cut at 2.75" by 3.25"
1 piece of black card cut at 2.75" by 1.75"
One piece of designer paper cut at 2.5" by 3"
One piece of designer paper ut at 2.5" by 1.5"
One topper (have used nestabilities to cut mine but be creative)
Stampin Up Oval Punch (this is the one I've worked the measurements around. I imagine it's possible to use other but then the measurements may need to be altered)
Double Sided Tape and Glue
A method for scoring (ruler and embossing tool or a scoreboard)
Scallop Oval Punch
Firstly, take your base card and score it at 1", 2", 4" and 4.5". You will also note that I've made a light score line at 7.5" too which I will use for lining up later - DO THIS VERY LIGHTLY or use a pencil.
Fold along each score line well and use a bone folder to sharpen the folds (do NOT fold the 7.5" line)
Now take the oval punch and push it as far as it will go from the base of the card. Center it at the sides and punch. The aim is to create a hole between the 1" and 2" scorelines. How's this for an action shot! Just look at the rose red card jumping out!
Punch a whole at the top too. I have done this by eye with the depth, just made sure I've centralised it at the sides so that it hangs straight. Your base should now look like this.
Attach the two black pieces onto the base as shown above. I attached mine using double sided for strength but when attaching the top one, make sure you put some glue around the oval cut out (just rub some pritt around the outside on the rose red base). If you don't, you may find the layer coming looose around the handle area.
Turn the base card over and align the punch over the hole you created earlier (so that only the black shows - no pink). Punch through.
Do the same again with the designer paper.
Attach double sided tape to the panel as indicated above and stick it down by lining it up with the score line you made at 7.5".
It should now look like this.
Attach your topper to the front. I have created a border for the handle using the oval punch and then punched a scallop one around it and glued it on.
Now simply add your treat and hang. I've used Dairy Milk for mine but I know Galaxy bars (the caramel ones, my fave) also fit. If you make one and find other fitting treats, please let me know. Originally, I used the SU Window punch but found the hole too small for many treats.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial, once you've made one, you'll find they are easy to make and great for mass production. I can imagine having these on a stall at a Christmas Fair as they are something a little different.
IF YOU USE MY TUTORIAL, PLEASE LET ME KNOW SO THAT I CAN COME AND VISIT YOU TO SEE WHAT YOU MAKE!
This is my own tutorial and design. I made these treat holders using my own measurements and had to go through many test versions to get the proportions right (I have a bin load of scrapped versions). If you do use it, please show your appreciation by crediting me. Thank You.
