Cool Cardstock Candy Keepers

I know, I couldn’t come up with a good ‘c’ word for ‘something you put candy in’ for my blog post title, so I had to go with a ‘k’ word. Honestly, we’re in the midst of kindergarten spelling at my house. Did you know that you can’t spell a word wrong in Kindergarten? I wish the rest of the world was so forgiving 🙂

I wanted to share this holiday treat with you. If you still need a quick Christmas gift, you can whip one up just like this (gotta love the flocked Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper). Or if you are ready for Christmas (good for you!) then you can save this idea for your pink and red Valentine’s paper.

The tag I used here is also from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and the stamped bird is in the Berry Christmas stamp set.

This cardstock basket is really easy to make. Thanks to my friend and fellow LovenStampfuls demonstrator, Leslie Sollars, for sharing the idea with me.

drawing-of-basket-scoringStart with any square of cardstock (9×9″ is simple) and score it into 9 squares. Then add the corner score lines and decorative Designer Paper (like in this little picture).

If you’d like a full tutorial, email me for free directions –Merry Christmas! 🙂

And yes, I made the little “how-to” picture using My Digital Studio… so handy! The little score lines are done with the Whisper White Stitching embellishment.
