The Candy Cane Treat Holder that I created 3 years ago has been very popular. Actually one of my most popular pins on Pinterest and one of my most popular videos on YouTube. So Since we have some really cute products in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog I felt it was the perfect time to do a revamp of that project. You can view the original post by clicking here.
Here’s a little peek at that project.
This project is super quick and easy and you can get a lot of them (as I demonstrated on my YouTube Live back in October). I had so much fun revamping this project and I thought about doing just that the first thing that popped in my mind was the Candy Cane Seasons Stamp Set
Not only is it a super cute and fun set but it also has a matching punch. The Candy Cane Builder Punch allows you to quickly punch out candy canes and bows for your projects. And they both can be purchased as a Cost Saving Bundle; where you save 10%. Here’s a look at the revamped version of my Candy Cane Treat Holder.
I used the Under the Mistletoe designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog. As a replacement for the dsp that was originally used. I kept the Real Red Base, you can get five of the bases from one sheet of Cardstock.
Tips & Tricks:
- One of the main tips I have for you is it’s much easier to make these using the stampin’ trimmer. Because I can cut and score all at the same time. The Stampin’ trimmer has both a cutting and a scoring blade on it so with this feature you can save time while creating. I found it wonderful I could score the entire piece of Cardstock and then cut it. This made the prep work so much faster. This is also easier then going to the cabinet and pulling out score board or having both right there taking up more space on my desk.
- After your score your entire piece of Cardstock you are going to cut it at 2 x 8 1/2.
- The designer series paper is cut at 1 3/4 x 6 and 1 1/4 x 1 3/4. So you can get a ton of these from one sheet of designer series paper. Make sure you are watching the direction of your pattern before you are cutting.
- This is a quick and easy project that anyone could do. I rate this on the easy scale. You only have two score lines; your first score line is at 6 3/4″ and then the next score is at 7 1/4″ and that’s all the scoring. See how easy is that.
- I punched two holes beside the candy cane to tie my ribbon through and to help add a little extra security. You can use your 1/16th hand held circle punch for this. Since most candy canes come wrapped: I like to secured mine even more by adding two glue dots on the back and a couple at the bottom in the front. The ones on front of the candy cane are hidden behind the flap at the bottom of the front. But, this flap also was designed to help make the Treat Holder stand up.
