A big Hello to you all!
I’ve been super busy with Picture to Page and Market Nights the past couple of weeks, so it’s lovely to be back!
Welcome to CTC 152 – Painted Autumn / Spooky Nights on pages 48 – 55 of the Holiday Catalogue.
I don’t really do Halloween, but this fun section has one of my absolutely favourite items! The treat tubes!
I had a team meeting recently and I thought it would be lovely to treat them to a hot chocolate. Not just any hot chocolate, one they could make themselves! Lol
So we made these cute as Christmas Treat Tube Holders all dressed up for Christmas.
One tube holds the Hot Chocolate, the other is filled with mini marshmallows. I found the original idea on split coast stampers HERE from Lisa Somerville. I noticed her double holder was missing one measurement – so here they are:
Take a piece of cardstock 11″ x 5 1/2″ for the Box Base and score on the long side at 1/2″; 1 3/4″; 4 1/4″; 5 1/2″ and 8″. Score each short side at 1 1/4″.
My measurements for the cardstock layers and DSP are:
Top Panel Cherry Cobbler – 2 7/8” x 2 3/4”
Top Panel DSP – 2 3/4” x 2 5/8”
Bottom Panel Cherry Cobbler – 2 7/8” x 2 3/8”
Bottom Panel Whisper White – 2 3/4” x 2 1/4”
The best bit – the Be Merry Designer Series Paper is currently included in the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale! You could make sooooooo many of these with that great special! But it’s only until October 31st!
Just imaging all the little goodies you could fill these Tubes for Christmas or any other occasion. They could even be used as a little gift and place setting on your Christmas table – just add a name to the bottom panel for a more personal touch.
I just recommend adding the ribbon before filling the tubes! It can be a bit tricky to tie them whilst trying not to spill the contents! Lol.
I hope you have enjoyed this weeks project. It’s now time to hop on over to the lovely Rachel to see what she has created for you all!
