I think it was during October that Stampin’ Up! offered the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper as a bonus for holding an event. I had some some of the paper was disappointed when it was no longer available. Guess what! It is back in stock. I was usingthe last bits of it to create these little treats for my friends. Oh, scroll down a bit to hear about the Sale!

Do they look familiar? I made something similar at Thanksgiving. Check out that post here.


Design Notes for Dashing Along Treat Holders:

Really, believe me, these are so easy.

  1. For Ghirardelli Square, cut paper 4″ x 4″.
  2. Use the Envelope Punch Board and score and punch at 2″ on all sides.
  3. Fold on score lines.
  4. Add a little adhesive on the bottom flap.
  5. Close and decorate with twine, thread or thick ribbon. Add a sprig if you like.
