You know how I am with my little treat holders... {Obsessed!!} I saw this idea on Splitcoast last year and decided to make them. I changed the pattern a little bit. Here are my directions:
  • 6" x 1 3/4" black piece of cardstock for the body.
  • Score at 2 1/2" and 3 3/4"
  • Fold ends toward each other, cut small triangle from the top sides to form a head shape.
  • Punch two small holes at the top and tie ribbon through.
  • White oval on body is the Stampin Up large oval punch; punch it and then stick the top of the oval back in the punch to cut away part of the top. Ink edges.
  • Punch arms using the Stampin Up large oval punch; hand cut out to the shape of arms.
  • Hand cut the beak from orange paper.
  • Punch feet from orange paper using the Stampin Up word window punch, then cut the rounded ends of the punched piece off using decorative scissors to resemble toes.
  • Attach small google eyes
  • Add candy (I used 2 hershey kisses)
I've made 40 of these so far. Very time consuming but the result is super cute. Hope you like them!
