ICS December Blog Hop Homemade Holiday

Welcome to the Inspire. Create. Share December Blog Hop and this month we are focusing on Homemade Holiday projects to share with you. Our wonderful Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help get you in the Christmas spirit as we count down the last days until the big celebration.
Today I wanted to share a fun treat holder idea that you can create as a quick gift for the holidays. The Tricks or Treats Dies is wonderful for creating a simple treat bag/box and I used a design from the Merry Bold & Bright Designer Series Paper to give it a fun and festive feel. You may remember that I used these dies to create bunch of these treat boxes for Halloween and they were a big hit with the kids who received them.

This cute treat holder is perfect for the holidays and easy to assemble. I love that the die from the Tricks Or Treats Dies does all the work and all I have to do is decide what paper to use and then add some Tear & Tape Adhesive to put it together. The fun part is decorating it to make it extra special. For this treat holder, I used the Festive & Fun stamp set for the sentiment, which I heat embossed onto the Granny Apple Green circle and the cute little beaver that I colored with Stampin' Blends Markers and fussy cut with Paper Snips. I kept the embellishments simple with some Sweet Sorbet Pearls from the 2022-2024 In Color Pearls. Just think of how many treat holders you could create for neighbors and friends to hand out during the holidays.
