A Fun Easter Treat!

I was "surfin' the net" for Easter 3D ideas and came across a cute idea from Erica Cerwin at Pink Buckaroo on her YouTube channel.  The original idea was for a Rice Krispy Treat Holder.  Since I couldn't find the Rice Krispy treats though, I had to rework the measurements and changed the color of the project to match my chocolate treat!

I used Melon Mambo cardstock (c/s), cut at 4" x 7".  With your scoring tool and the 7" piece at the top, score at 2 1/2" and 3".  Then, turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 1/2", 1", 3" and 3 1/2". The following photo shows the next steps:

Cut out the tabs that are missing in the photo.  Sorry ... I didn't take a before picture!  The long tab will be punched out using the Scalloped Bag Topper Punch.  If you've scored correctly, the center portion is exactly 2" and fits perfectly into the punch.  Go ahead ... push it all the way in!  Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to the 2 side tabs.  Then, fold them in and up to make a pocket for the little Hershey Bunny!

I used Melon Mambo Stitched Satin Ribbon and Thick White Baker's Twine for my accent ribbon. The little stamp is hard to see in the already filled treat so I added another photo -- "An Easter Treat for Somebunny Sweet!"  I love it!!  For the decorations, I cut out the basket, eggs and bow using the Basket Builder framelit dies.  I just love this bundle!!

I hope to make a bunch for my coworkers since I'm working overnight into Easter!!

Have a wonderful Easter!
