May camp project

Our project for May was a Hershey candy bar holder. You could change out the colors and stamps to make this for any occasion. It would be cute to glue dot a gift card to the candy bar also.

Inks used are Pretty in Pink for the wheel and Regal Rose. Accessories used are the paper crimper, ribbon, ticket corner punch and tab punch. To make the holder cut your paper 7" x 7" and score it at 2" and 5". If you are going to stamp or wheel the outside do that before you fold your scored lines. Glue closed and use a crimper on the bottom. We then used a circle punch to cut a 1/2 circle from the top so that you can grab the candy bar.
