Today, I have another example of how you can use the retiring Bella's Bloom as a cute little accent. It's featured on a special treat holder that I demonstrated last fall as a stocking stuffer. What a hit this one was!
TIP: This project alone is
reason enough to buy the retiring Slot
Punch before it's gone!
Bella's Bloom Candy Bar Pull
I absolutely love this
candy bar treat holder! (Of course, I had to add a place holder for the
candy bar in this photo, because I ate all of them!) Pull the ribbon and it pulls
the candy bar along with it—no need to untie it. It makes a fast and
easy gift for any occasion!
You can find the tutorial for these
at Splitcoast Stampers: Candy
Bar Pull Treat
Although the tutorial is for Hershey Bar size,
you can use the same idea for any size of candy bar.
- Measure your candy so the paper/card stock wraps completely around
- Adhere pouch on three sides with Sticky Strip.
- Use the retiring Slot Punch (you need this punch!) to create
the ribbon hole.
- Measure enough ribbon to run length-wise around your candy, and
still have enough to tie. Use ribbon that is at least 1/2" wide, but 5/8" or 1" is better. Thread through the slot holes, push ribbon
down into the pouch with the bar, then tie off.
- Crimp the end with the Crimper. This secures the end, so it won't pop open. Plus, it looks more finished.
Bella's pretty bloom fits right inside the Large Oval Punch, so it
made a nice medallion on the front. Like my previous post, I used markers to color the image: Regal Rose, Rose Red, and Olive Green. Accent is layered on Scallop Oval Punch and Wide Oval Punch pieces.
