The holiday season is upon us and who doesn't need some stocking stuffers? I have these little square fabric Christmas baskets for my nieces and nephew that I fill each year because... Santa comes to Auntie's house too! I like to fill with a few small items like a pair of socks, hair ties for the girls, a gift card, and a little bit of candy. One year I did a hot cocoa theme with hot cocoa packets, candy canes, a cute Christmas mug, some Hershey Kisses sprinkled in and a gift card for Starbucks. Yes Starbucks... the kids like their smoothies and so it is a treat for them.
Today's project is this awesome Double Hershey Bar holder. These are great for any theme really... just change up your designer series paper, colors and accessories. But seeing as these will be going in the kids Santa baskets, I kept with the Christmas theme.
Is that not the cutest holder? Who wouldn't love 2 Hershey Bars! And they are really easy to make and I'll make it easier by giving you all the measurements. Just watch my video below to see how I put them together.
But first, here is another one that I make with the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series paper, the So Many Snowflakes Dies, along with the gems, glimmer paper and ribbon which you can get in a complete product suite called Snowflake Splendor. My card base color is Balmy Blue.
Here is what you will need to cut and score for the basic holder:
- Card stock: 7-1/8 x 8-1/4
- Score on the 7-1/8 side at: 2-1/4, 2-5/8, 3, 5-1/4 and 6
- Score on the 8-1/4 side at: 1, 1-3/8, 6-7/8 and 7-1/4
- Card stock: 2 pieces cut to 2 x 5-1/2
- score both on the 2" side at 1/4 and 5/8
- Designer Series Paper:
- 2 pieces cut to 1-1/8 x 5-1/4 (pocket covers)
- 1 piece cut to 2-1/8 x 5-1/4 (front cover)
- 1 piece cut to 1 x 5-1/4 (front flap... rounded corners)
Here's my YouTube Video to see how this all comes together:
