Treat holder using slimline tag die by Karen



Hello!  Today I'm sharing my Design Team project on the Crafty Meraki Blog using the Love Slimline Tag die set. I get so much use of this both this set and the Celebrate Slimline Tag die and I wanted to share another way to use them by making a treat holder. I have a tutorial on how I made this on YouTube HERE


These would be quick and easy to create for all kinds of themes and occasions!

This one was decorated using one of the darling pixie's from the Pixie Perfect Stamp set with hearts from the Owl Yours stamp set. Blending brushes were used to add the colour to the front of the tag, and I used plastic stamp packaging and dye inks to add the colour to the back side. I have a YouTube video showing how I did that on a different Crafty Meraki project (click HERE to view it). 

I chose 'colouring book' style colouring with very little shading so that makes it easy to create multiples. The HUGS is included with the Love Slimline Tag set, I simply snipped off the "&" that was attached. 

These instructions are in the video, but I will share them here as well.  Once you die cut your tag, lay it horizontally onto your scoring tool and score 1-3/4 and 2" from the left edge. This creates the pocket for the Ghirardelli chocolate.
Cut a strip of card stock, 3-3/4" long and 1/2" wide. Score that at 1/2", 3/4", 3" and 3-1/4". Add adhesive on each outer end as shown in the video and attach to the tag where it will be hidden by the bottom pocket. Adhere this to the tag. 
Add adhesive to the front of that strip and fold the bottom tag edge onto it and now your chocolate will slide into the pocket from the top but won't slide out either side. This is much easier to explain visually and really doesn't take much time at all - again, a great thing if you are making multiples.
I'm Karen Aicken and I'll be back next week with another Crafty Meraki project - this time a pop up tag card.  Have a wonderful Tuesday!
