Let It Snow Kit Kat Gift Card Holders

Hi Stamping Friends!
Today I'm sharing one of my original treat/gift card holders that has been a big hit at my craft fairs!  I introduced this cute Kit Kat holder last year (All Is Bright Kit Kat Holder), and I modified it with some updated paper for this season. It's super-easy to create and, like a gift bag, can be re-used again & again!
I shared how to create this project a couple weeks ago during my LIVE Class. Watch the Replay below:

Let It Snow Kit Kat Gift Card Holders
These adorable little treat holders do double-duty as a gift card holder and they are super-easy to make!

The base of the holder is made from half of an Acetate Card Box, so the holder will stand up at a holiday table place setting. Pull the bag topper and it reveals a Kit Kat chocolate bar!

Box Basics—I started by cutting an Acetate Card Box in half. With the box unassembled, the half-way point is at 4".  It cuts with a guillotine paper cutter or with scissors very easy. You'll need something more heavy-duty than the Paper Trimmer.  
Next, I decorated the box with a slip-in piece of Designer Series Paper.  I cut a 2-3/4" x 9-3/4" strip of Let It Snow DSP and scored it at the 1/2", 4-3/4" and 5-1/4" marks. No need to use adhesive, just set the folded paper inside the assembled half-box. You can even take it out and use the reverse side if you want!
Box Décor—I added a 4-1/2" x 3/4" strip of Real Red cardstock across the box front with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Then, I added a Sparkle Glimmer Paper Stitched Nested Labels die-cut over the top.  For an easy-peasy focal point, I die-cut a sparkly snowman from the Let It Snow DSP with the Stitched Shapes circle die and layered it onto a Real Red Layering Circles scallop circle die-cut. It's popped up with Dimensionals.  I finished with a couple of Rhinestone Jewels.

Kit Kat Bag—A Kit Kat bar fits perfectly inside of a Clear Envelope, which is what I used for the pull-out bag.  I sealed up the top, leaving plenty of bag to add a topper.  You can give the candy alone, or tuck a gift card inside the bag, as well!  Too Cool!
Bag Topper—The topper starts with a 4-1/2" x 3"  piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock, scored down the middle at the 1-1/2" mark.  I decorated the front of the topper with a 4-1/4" x 1-1/4" strip of Coastal Cabana that was embossed with the Stylish Scrolls folder.

Topper Décor—I used up some of my retired accessories to decorate this batch of Kit Kat Holders. The retired Silver Mini Sequins are attached with a Glue Dot, then I purchased some white mini clothespins on Amazon to match and added a red satin bow.  You'll need some kind of clip to hold the topper onto the bag. I like a clip because then you can re-use the bag again and again, but you could use a staple or even a brad.  I finished by adding a Whisper White Stitched Nested Label in the smallest die-cut shape as a little "to/from" tag.  Adorable!

Two Cool—I switched out the background Let It Snow DSP on this version and die-cut a different sparkly snowman for a little variation.  
Cookies Work, Too!—This holder is also great for cookies, too!  Here are some cookie holders I created a couple of years ago!

Would You Add A Gift Card or Just The Kit Kat?
