Easter Treats - Part 1

I have a few different Easter treats to share with you this week.  They are both so cute and can be completed in a matter of minutes!  The first is a Tic Tac Holder

Supply List
Cardstock or Scrapbook Paper
Paper Trimmer
Glue Dots and/or Double Sided Tape
Tic Tacs

Cut paper to 4 3/4" x 3".  Score at 2" and 2 3/4" on the long side.

Cut a strip of coordinating paper to use as embellishment.  I made it 1 1/2" x 4 3/4" and scored it at 2" and 2 3/4" just like the other.  You can adjust the size of this piece depending on how you are going to embellish the front.  Adhere it to the larger piece with double sided tape.

Add other embellishments if you want.  I attached the ribbon to the "spine" of the holder with a glue dot for the tie closure.  I also added a few glue dots on the back of the tic tac box and adhered it to the inside back of the holder.

Here are a few examples of how I embellished them.  The sky is the limit!  This is a great chance to use up some of your "leftovers" that you may not have enough of to use on other projects.

These are quick and easy enough that you could make several at a time.  They make great party favors!  This idea can be adapted to many different types of treats.  Just adjust the measurements to fit the size of whatever treat you are using.  Some other ideas are candy bars, microwave popcorn, packs of gum or whatever else you can find!

Stay tuned this week for another tutorial on Easter treats!

Thanks for stopping by!
