Fun Candy Holder using September 2020 Paper Pumpkin (video)

Today’s project is a fun Halloween candy holder made with supplies from the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit along with a few additional materials & supplies.

Half of a double-sided Cracker Box piece is used per candy holder.

For the below samples I used the Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper instead of the Cracker Box piece.

With Paper Pumpkin, you’ll save time and money while you build a collection of crafting supplies. Every month you’ll receive a unique stamp set with an ink spot (that won’t repeat a color in a 12-month period). In no time at all, you’ll have a variety of stamps and ink to use on other projects. In addition, your first kit includes a free clear stamping block that you’ll use every month.

1.  Punch each end of 2″ x 8-1/2″ cardstock with Fancy Tag Topper Punch. Fold at score line.

Tip: If you are making more than one candy holder score 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock at 4″ & 4-1/2″ before cutting 2″ strips. 

2.  Fold **Cracker Box on new score lines and apply adhesive on center panel.  Line bottom edge of Cracker Box paper to be about 1/4″ above fold of cardstock & adhere. Fold end panel on one end of Cracker Box and apply adhesive on back  and wrap to front of cardstock to adhere; repeat for other side. Lift end panels and adhere in place with Dimensionals.

3. Slide ribbon into openings made with Fancy Tag Topper Punch.  Then insert Candy (or Insert Card folded on score lines) between cardstock and slide all the way to bottom (fold of cardstock).

4. Tie ends of ribbon together with baker’s twine to secure.

5. Embellish as desired.  


**To use Designer Paper instead of Cracker Box: Fold Designer Series Paper on score lines and apply adhesive on center panel.  Line bottom edge of designer series paper to be about 1/4″ above fold of cardstock & adhere. Apply adhesive on both ends of Designer Paper. Wrap one end of Designer Paper around and adhere to cardstock making sure bottom edge of designer series paper is about 1/4″ above fold of cardstock. Repeat for other end of Designer Paper.
