Today I’m sharing a Treat Holder that holds 5 Andes Mints. This is one of the projects we made this weekend at our Candy Hearts team meeting. I was inspired by the little treat holders on page 26 of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog.

Wink of Stella can add so much to a project, but it seems almost impossible to photograph. Here are a couple of feeble attempts at getting it to show in a photo. It’s much more visible in person, but without being too glitzy.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Poppy Parade card stock (CS) cut to 2-5/8″ x 2-1/4″, then scored 1/2″ from all four sides
  • strip of Poppy Parade CS cut to 1/2″ x 5″ (feel free to make this longer if you wish)

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one score line at each corner, to create a flap at each corner

Cut using the Home Together Dies:

  • 2 houses from a scrap of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • 2 houses from a scrap of Poppy Parade CS

Colored using Clear Wink of Stella:

  • windows of both DSP houses (allow to dry thoroughly before handling)

Assembled the treat holder:

  • burnished the folds in the base with a Bone Folder
  • corner flaps glued onto the inside of the adjacent sides, to form the open top box
  • ran a Bone Folder along the 1/2″ strip, like you would do to curl ribbon, to soften the fibers (This is so it will curve and not bend.)
  • one end of the strip glued to the inside of one of the shorter sides of the box
  • opposite end of the strip glued to the inside of the opposite short side of the box
  • each die cut DSP house glued onto a die cut Poppy Parade CS house 
  • one house glued onto the outside of each end of the box, only putting along the bottom where it meets the side of the box and a little up the center where it meets the handle
  • This will hold 5 Andes Mints perfectly.
