Trick or Treat Blog Hop

Hi and Welcome to the Trick or Treat Blog Hop! I'm so Excited!!  I just  love treats and holders and what better time then Halloween.  There are 10 stops on this hop. If you just stopped by here and would like to start from the top then jump on over to Angie's blog Here.  If you just came from Angie's blog then you are in the right place.
The idea of this hop is to create a fun, quick and simple treat holder or card.  A while back I had seen this pencil holder tutorial on Youtube. It was for pencils and she had a Valentines Day theme so I changed it up a little. You can find this tutorial Here. It is from, Thank you Kerry.

I had made these with the intentions of buying suckers of some sort and I was at Sam's Club one day and saw these and I thought they would be the perfect treat for these holders. The box of 24 was $8 and some change.

I used papers from this paper pack. I love this paper. It's really cool Halloween print on a great quality paper and it's 2 sided.

Here is the base of the treat which measures 2"x11".  Then scored at 6 1/2" and 6 7/8"

             You then cut 3 pieces of printed paper at 2 at 1 3/4 x 6 1/8 and then 1 at 1 3/4 x 3 7/8.

I rounded the edges using my corner chomper at 1/2".

Then using the ATG I attached one piece to the inside of the treat base.

Then I attached the other 2 pieces to the outside of the Treat base.

 Once the Treat is folded up this is what it will or should look like.

Then I took a 1" circle punch and punched a hole in the front.

 I then stuck the candy stick into the hole.

Next you want to take some ribbon and tie it around. This helps to keep your treat closed and secured.

 Now for the tag. I used this Fiscar punch and just punch coordinating Halloween paper.  The little sentiment I found online. I went back to try and find it for reference and couldn't find it anywhere. I will keep looking but it was a online free printable. I cut them out and attached to the treat.

This is your finished Halloween treat.  You can do so much with these for all the different seasons.
