Sweet Treats

Today I have an especially sweet project to share with you made with Fun Stampers Journey Yummy & Delicious collection. Using the Pennant Fun die set I created these fun little treat tents, perfect for any celebration or holiday. 

Would you like to know how these were made? They're super easy! Just cut a two strips of card stock or patterned paper 3" by 10" and score at 3 1/2" and 6 1/2".

I used the second largest triangle in the Pennant Fun die set, but you can use any size to make these in a larger or smaller size. 

If you're using a different size triangle, simply measure the distance of the bottom points of your triangle for the width of your paper strips. In this case it was 3" wide. Then measure the distance from the tip of your triangles to the bottom for the side lengths. 

Once you've made your measurements and score lines, take the paper strips and weave them through the triangle die so that only the sides will be cut (see photo). Die cut both strips of paper on both ends. 

Once you cut your two paper pieces on both sides, adhere them together as shown in the photo above with some Journey Craft Glue. 

Now you will need to make pencil marks on each point of the container in order to help you center punch holes for your ribbon or twine. The new Press Punch tool works perfectly for this job. Once you have your holes punched, weave your ribbon or twine through each hole. I threaded my twine through the front of each tip. Then I added a tag to the twine made with smaller Pennant Fun dies before I tied the container closed. 

Depending on the kind of celebration or holiday, you can add so many different goodies to these treat tents. Use Christmas paper for the holidays, etc. Enjoy!
