Bear Hugs

Sharing these cute little 3 x 3 Ghirardelli candy holders today.  Made with our new stamp set Bear Hugs.  Can't get enough of this cute little bear!  Directions are below

This one is holding a heart balloon

Bouquet of flowers anyone?

and a woodgrain love you heart

Here's what it looks like inside- holds two candies

Here are the how to's......

Here's what you need for the project:

For outer cover cut 1- 3 x 6 3/4" piece of cardstock- score at 3" and 3 3/4"
1- piece of 6 x 6 piece of designer paper scored at 1/2"
For the cover design cut the white piece at 2 3/4" and the designer paper at 2 1/2"
The linen thread is cut at 10" long then trimmed as needed
The ribbon on all are 20" long and trimmed as well

Starting with the outer cover, choose your cardstock color, mine is Crumb Cake.   You will need 1 piece cut at 3 x 6 3/4", then score at 3 and at 3 3/4" - set aside

Next choose your designer paper.  I choose the new Love Blossoms (available January 5th) size is 6 x 6 for this piece- score 1/2" down and folder over as you see in picture above.  Add adhesive and fold flat.  This is the piece that holds the candy.

Now taking a 1 1/4" circle punch, punch each side up half the size of the circle as you see here.

Now go ahead and score this piece at 2 3/4" and then at 3 1/4"  now fold in the center.

next take a 1/8" hole punch and holding both the pieces you see in the photo together, punch a hole on each end so that you can thread your twining through both pieces.  They fit together and are held with just the twine.  No adhesive for these pieces.
Once you have both pieces together it will look like this below.  This is the inside....

Slip the candy into each pocket and now it's on to decorating the outside.   I used the stamp set Bear Hugs also available January 5th.
