Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Christmas Craft Fair makes : Hanging Sweet Treats, Candy Cane Lane & Cookie Cutter Christmas with Instructions.

I just cant stop crafting with these two sets – The Candy Cane Lane suite, and Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle plus I have loads more ideas running round my head, just need to find the time to do them all :).

These treats can be hung on the Christmas tree or round the house or put in stockings, I am going to put some on my tree. I made these with the chocolate coins in mind but thought I would make one that was more adult based with the little chocolate chunks in.20160901_120336-1

Can you spot the mistake, I forgot to write the score measurement on the paper, it needs scoring at 6 1/4″. I used Real Red card, either Crumb Cake or Whisper White for the smaller piece and Candy Cane Lane DSP.

Fold and burnish score line, then round all the corners as shown including on the fold line.

Stamp your chosen sentiment on to your small piece of card, mine are from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set.

Adhere the DSP on to the card in the larger section, fold over the top and adhere the small piece of card. Using a 2″ x 8″ Cellophane bag fill with chocolate coins or other sweets of your choice.

Add about a 2″ strip of Snail adhesive or tear and tape down the middle of your treat holder, fold over the top of your bag so that it is the same length as your holder and stick down on to the glue. Fold  over the top, punch a hole into each top corner and thread your chosen ribbon or twine through.

Stamp your character from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, punch it out using the matching punch and colour as required. Add to the front of your sweet treat and your done!

  1. So adorable! I can’t wait to make these for my kids. Thank you for the tutorial. I have a quick question, how did you get the coins to stay in place and not move around and fall to the bottom of the celllophane bag?

    • I think it’s down to the size of the bag, these bags are the Stampin Up 2″ x 8″ cellophane bags and my chocolate coins are from Wilko’s. they sit nicely in the bag, either 1 layer (3) or you can squeeze 2 layers in (6).
      I think if the bag was any wider or the coins smaller they wouldnt have stayed put so try and get coins that are a snug fit.

    • Thank you, my family love chocolate coins hanging on the tree at Christmas so I came up with the idea for them and then thought they would be good for my craft fairs. The good thing is you can make them up now and then add the coins when the bags come 🙂 x
