Ghirardelli Treat Holder Tutorial

1- Cut designer paper 4 X 6
2-On the short (4 inch) side score at 1 inch and 3 inch marks
3- On the long (6 inch) side score at 2 3/4 and 3 1/4
4-Fold and burnish all score lines
5-Fold the two long ends and punch each end using the scalloped tag topper punch
6- In the middle you see two parallel score lines that are about 1/2 inch apart. You want to take your bone folder and place it on the outside edge of the bottom score line and gently pull the inside edge and fold over to meet the outer edge of your paper...this will form a triangle on the inside piece that you will want to burnish in place. Repeat this step for each of the four "corners" of that parallel scored lines.
7-Open your sides back up and apply glue to the upper right and lower right portions being careful NOT to get any glue on the triangle section you see to the center right side of your paper. 
8- Repeat step 7 above for the left side
9- You should now be able to fold your treat holder in half bringing the bottom to the top and matching the tag topper ends together and see that the inside has a pocket for your treat.

10- Take about 7 inches of Ribbon and bring it from the back of your treat holder to the front leaving about 3 inches at the top and wrap the other side of the ribbon around the front side to the back and pull it through the back to make a flat knot. 
11- On a scrap piece of lemon lime twist cardstock stamp your sentiment in Tuxedo black ink, punch or cut to fit around your sentiment. Place mini dimensionals on the back and adhere to the front of your project.
