A Paper Pumpkin Treat

Hello! Is it me or are the days getting shorter? I know here in Denver the nights are getting cooler too. I think fall is coming. I can't wait.

Have you checked out the My Pumpkin Challenge lately? If not, head on over and check out some lovely creations! Here is my sample for this week. This little treat holder is the perfect size for a Ghirardelli Chocolate Square!


Here is how I did it:


You can see how I cut the box that was included in the July Paper Pumpkin kit. After I cut the piece I wanted to use, I scored 3/4" and then cut off the end piece. So when you close it as shown in the top picture you have a little treat holder. I punched two small holes at the top for the ribbon and stamped Happy Birthday (stamp from previous kit), added a banner and star at the bottom to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think about this treat holder.

  1. What a clever idea! I will have to try it with those treat boxes I've been hoarding.
