Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop

Good morning friends! It's time for a Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop!! 

I just love Paper Pumpkin! That beautiful little red box brings so much joy when I see it in my mail.  I love the anticipation of seeing what projects we'll be creating, and what the stamps & ink look like! So much fun!

Thursday night in the PAPER PUMPKIN GROUPIES, I did my regular monthly unboxing video and shared a handful of my alternative projects with them.  This is one of the things I most look forward to each month! I have so much fun creating alternative projects. :-D Anywhoo, I told them that I would be sharing the measurements for a fun little Ghirardelli treat holder on this hop today! 

I hope you enjoy it!

I started out with two pieces of BumbleBee Cardstock, to keep from wasting any paper. One piece for the back and one for the pocket. 

The back measures 2" x  and I used the Fancy Tag Topper Punch for the top.  Of course, you could use any of the tag topper punches.

The pocket measures 3 3/4" x 2 1/4".  If you want it stamped, now is the time to do so.  I stamped the little flower cluster (from the kit) all over my pocket in BumbleBee ink. 

Score the pocket as follows: 
LONG SIDE: 1/2", 7/8", 2 7/8", 3 1/4"
SHORT SIDE: 1/2", 7/8"

Once you've scored, you'll want to cut three of the little squares out of the corner.  Reference the photo here: 

As you can see, I also mitered that one little square that was left.  I like doing that to reduce any corner "bulk". 

Now, you'll apply Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue to all three of the 1/2" sections.  These will connect to the tag base to form the pocket. 

If we had made this all one piece, you'd have to cut long 1/2" and 3/8" strips away from each side of the piece after you scored.  We've saved paper! YAY! :-)

I used one of the kit's adorable little floral die cuts to embellish the front, and some of the Mossy Meadow Twine that came in the kit along with Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon for the cute tie on top. 

This little treat holder fits a single Ghirardelli square perfectly! ENJOY!

Follow the hop around to see all the fabulous projects that have been created for you!
