I made the first holder from the Scallop Envelope die using the Blushing Bride color of the Designer Series Paper Pack – In Color. I stamped the flamingos from Valentine Defined on Real Red card stock with White Craft ink and punched the image out with the Full Heart punch. This is big enough to hold a piece of Ghiradelli chocolate or a York heart-shaped peppermint patty.
The second treat holder is made with the Candy Wrapper die. I punched it out of Pretty in Pink card stock. Be sure to crease on all the score lines before running it through the Big Shot again using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. It is crucial that you cut out the card stock and fold on the score lines first. If you emboss the card stock before cutting it out, the score marks will barely be visible. After embossing, refold on the score lines before gluing the edge together. You will be able to put all sorts of candy or a small piece of jewelry or slips of paper with love notes on them in this holder.
