Trendy Baker’s Twine – You Are Spooktacular

Hello and welcome, everyone!

Guest Designer, Lisa from The Relativity of Paper. I’m super excited to be sharing another fun sweet treat project showcasing the October’s featured products, Gray Licorice Trendy Twine and Skinny Candy Chutes. 

This treat holder makes a sweet gift for teachers, kids or someone in the office. Skip the envelope with this one and place it on a desk or counter. The recipient will have a nice Halloween surprise waiting for them. 

This is such an easy project. I have a pictorial below. 

You will need a 7.75″(H) x 8.25″(W) in. heavy cardstock for this project. I recommend at least #80 lb, that’s what I used. 

Lay the paper horizontally on scoreboard and score at the .75″, 1.5″ and 2.25″ marks. Set aside. 

Die-cut the top of the pattern papers, align and adhere together. Trim so the pattern papers are 8.125″ (W). Set aside.

Using a temporary adhesive or post- it tape center the pattern papers on the cover stock ABOVE the .75″ score line. 

Flip the paper over on a paper trimmer and cut at 1.5″, 2.25″, 6″ and 6.75″ marks cutting from the .75″ to the 2.25″ scored lines creating straps. (See picture below) Make sure not to cut past those scored lines. 

Add a stronghold adhesive as shown in the picture above. Flip the paper over and permanently adhere the pattern papers. Be sure to never add adhesive over the cut lines, they need to be able to move freely. Flip back over and fold on the .75″ score lined up, adhering it to the back of the next section. 

Score the cover at 4.25″ and fold to create the card. 

You should be able to slide a skinny candy chute into the two straps on the front of the card. 

Add candy to the Skinny Candy Chute, slide it into place and secure by wrapping Gray Licorice Trendy Twine around the candy chute and tie. I stamped the You Are Spooktacular sentiment from the Annie’s Paper Boutique Happy Halloween Stamp Set on the inside of the card. 

Now the fun part, decorating the front of the card. And that brings us back to this.
