Sweet Treat Top Note Holder Step-by-Step

I had a number of requests for directions for the Sweet Treat Top Note Holder that I posted earlier today. They are really easy to make....

Here we go...
(be kind this is the first Step-by-Step I have ever done)

Step 1: Cut out 2 cardstock Top Notes and 1 DSP Top Note.
Note: Notice that the Top Note is not the same on top and bottom. The points are different--make sure you have matching points on the top and bottom so when it comes time to assemble it will match up. (The voice of experience...LOL)
Step 2: Trim your DSP Top Note on the perforated line.
Step 3: Cut in half.
Step 4: Adhere 1 piece of the DSP Top Note to the top of the BACK Chocolate Chip Top Note.
Step 5: Adhere the remaining DSP Top NOte to the bottom of the FRONT Chocolate Chip Top Note.
Step 6: Fold over the FRONT Top Note. I use my bone folder to get a nice crisp edge.
Step 7: Tape your flap down--this is optional but I find it easier to work with.

Step 8: Using Sticky Strip make a pouch.

Step 9: Assemble. I squeeze the sides a bit and stick my hand down in the pouch to form a pocket so the candy will fit better in there. It's pretty tight and needs to be 'worked over' a bit. :)

Step 10: Decorate. :)


Stamps: Love Bandit (Occasions Mini)

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

DSP: Sending Love Specialty

Accessories: Sticky Strip, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, modern label punch, word window punch, heart to heart punch, dimensionals, white grosgrain ribbon, aquawriter.
