8 Days Left: Bella’s Bloom Candy Bar Pull Treat

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
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. 
  • Decorate!

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.
