How cute is this little girl? I made the little gingerbread girl treat for my team, Joyful Butterflies, for our Christmas Party last night. Inside the treat box is a Hershey chocolate Santa. When I bought them I thought they were the same size as the snack size candy bars, but they were bigger. I am not complaining about getting more chocolate! However, I needed to create a box to fit them, because all of my other boxes that I usually use were too small.
I have to admit, I love creating 3D projects, so this was right up my alley. To make this project you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
- cut at 4 1/2" x 5" on 5" side score at 1/2, 2 1/4", 2 3/4" and 4 1/2"
Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper
- cut at 1 5/8 x 4 3/8"
Use your bone folder to burnish all the score lines and add Tear and Tape to one of the 1/2" flaps. Adhere the other 1/2" section to the section with the Tear and Tape. This will create your box (there is no bottom to this box, it will go around your candy bar).
I used the 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim to wrap around the candy bar (from the top to bottom) and it took about 14". I then used the Cherry Cobbler Twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine to tie around the burlap. I added two glue dots to the back of the candy bar to hold the ribbon in place.
To get your candy bar out of the box, pull up on the ribbon. I used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set for the gingerbread girl and adhered her with Stampin Dimensionals.
My ladies loved their little treats! We had a great time at our party, but again, I forgot to take pictures. I do have a picture of my table before it started.
I will be showing you other projects over the next few days that I made for my team. Thank you for stopping in and I hope you have a great day!
