Sweet- Treat Candy Card

Hi everyone! Are we all ready for Christmas? I thought I was until I realized that I didn't have a little something for the kiddos teacher (the night before the last day of school before break this weekend, oops). So I decided to make a quick sweet-treat card for them.

I am gonna share this tutorial with you and on She's a Sassy Lady Blog. I am Guest DT for today over there too. Its another great tutorial site you might want to check it out :)

How to make a Sweet- Treat Candy Card

Here is what you will need:
trimmer, bone folder, ribbon, scissors, craft knife, cardstock 8 1/2x11, score tape and candy


First you will score at 3cm, 6cm, 9cm and 12cm horizontally and then turn paper vertically and score at 3cm, flip and score other side at 3cm 

Next, cut at score lines to 3cm vertical fold and then trim off to the first score line. See photo below.

In the second column, you are going to make your window.  

After you make your window (I just used my trimmer), You will add the score tape to the last column and the bottom backside of the second column tab, see below.

Now go ahead and start to fold over the score lines to make your box and fold bottom tabs to close the bottom. 

Now because I didn't use a piece of clear acetate, I went ahead and using my craft knife, made a slit in the middle of my card base for my ribbon to slide through.

Go head and add your candy, You can see below that 4 pieces work great.

Now add your finished card to you box base and tie your ribbon to help hold the candy in place (worked like a charm)

For this card, I added a small tag to embellish the sweet treat box part.

Very easy to make and is a little different from the tea light cards.

Here are my three finished cards...
