Candy Bar Sliders

on September 29, 2012

With Halloween around the corner, what a great time to make these Candy Bar Slider treat holders.  This technique has been around for awhile with many variations. Following are quick and simple instructions that I used.

Cut your DSP (Designer Series Paper) to 2-3/4″ x 11″

Score at 5-3/8″ and 5-5/8″

Turn and score at 1/4″ inch on each side (11 inch side)

 

Where the score lines meet in the middle snip up to lines as shown. This will be the bottom of your holder.

Crease your score lines and assemble your box. Use either liquid glue (Tombow) or sticky strip on two of the side folds.

Based on the width of your ribbon, use a punch at the top front center of your box, I used the Little Labels Punch Pack.

Then line your punched hole with the back side of the box and punch again.

It should look like this

Take your candy bar and wrap your ribbon around it.

Slide it into the box.

Pull the ribbon through the punched holes.

Then tie your ribbon at the top, allowing you to push and pull the candy bar out.

You should be able to slide the candy bar in and out of the treat holder.

Decorate and embellish

This one is using Scallop Dotted Ribbon for the knot.

Quick Tip:  Use 12″x12″ paper for larger candy bars, just score 1/8″ on either side of the center point of the paper.

Stamp set: Toxic Treats
Ink: Versamark
Paper: My Digital Studio – Pick Your Poison
