Thankful Hearts and fun treat holders!


Happy beautiful Monday everyone!
There is a chill in the air (literally) and football was on all weekend long here in the Wilson home. I loved it! It's definitely time for the crock pot to come out of the cabinet. ;)
I have some really fun treat holders to share with you, courtesy of my friend Erin from Stamp Till U Cramp. A while back I won her blog candy, included was this adorable treat holder that I just had to CASE! I modified different versions for a recent post on A Crafty Little Place (seen HERE), but these are really fun to do. You can get 3 from one 12x12 sheet of cardstock/DP. For these projects I used the adorable Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg line from DCRU, including the element sheets that are used as tags.

Directions:
Start with a 4"x12" piece of paper
Score @ 2", 4", and 8"
Fold and voila...a treat holder that can be used for many different occasions!
Here are other versions that I created with this template:

The look can be modified just by using different nesties or punches. I used clear cardstock for the window since it's always fun to see what's inside. :)

Here are a few challenges that I am using this for:
Fab 'n' Funky: Whateva (<---love that!)
The Creative Cottage: Celebrations (perfect little gifties for any occasion!)
Paper Play Challenges: Autumn Is A Comin'
Paper Playtimes: If the shoe fits, buy every color. (Variety is the spice of life!)
Speedy the Cat's Challenge: Use Fall colors

Thank you all for coming by today, enjoy this beautiful start to your week! ♥

Love the variety achieved by using different dies and punches for the windows. I'm assuming you bagged the candy? TF contributing a super idea! ~ CM2 :-)
