A Crafty Little Treat Holder

Happy Thursday everyone!
It's Joni here with a quick and easy tutorial for a little treat holder using your
favorite 6x6 sheets of designer papers and wonderful products from DCRU.
Last month I had the opportunity to attend a Meet and Greet with 20 other crafters.
Everyone swapped ideas and I am so excited to share this one with you!

To begin you will need:
6x6 sheet of designer paper (double sided works well)

Now let's begin!
Start with a 6x6 piece of paper and score horizontally:
Fold paper in half, forming a triangle:
Fold one side over, bringing the point halfway across the plane:

Repeat on the other side:

Last step:
Fold down top flap to create a pocket:

Adhere and embellish!

This is a great project for a quick hostess or teacher's gift,
for little treats as well as gift cards (tucked behind the peppermints), or
even as birthday party favors. It's so fun that the kids can make these themselves for a craft!
As you can see, tea bags fit perfectly into a 6x6 size. Follow the same directions
to create 8x8 treat holders to accommodate hot chocolate packets and bigger snacks.
You can find all these wonderful 6x6 papers HERE at DCRU with the most amazing prices.
Thank you so much for coming by everyone, be sure to let us know if you've tried this out!
Have a wonderful day. :)
