Treat Holder

At my workshop this past weekend Lorenza brought this fun pattern to share.  The original idea came from Debi Pippin.
Her treat bag was called a "Teabag and Cookie Holder".
Here is my version using Ivy Lane Paper from CTMH.
 My treat bag has 2 wrapped Ghirardelli squares, one on each side of the bag.  In the center there are some MnM's hanging in a baggie. 

Those MnM's are from last Easter!  Yikes...

The paper is 8 1/" x 12"
Scored the long way at:
1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5, 7, 9 1/2 and 10 3/4
Scored the short way at:
2 1/2 and 6"

Here's paper with lines for those that need a visual.
The corners with the X's you cut out.

Not sure why this photo is such a different color but it's the same..

Fold down the corners diagonally.
The printed paper will be what you see on the outside of finished product.

Fold in both sides to center, one shown in photo

Fold the 1st and last score toward center and adhere down, this is all the adhering you do!

Flip it over and fold on the 5" and 7" fold to make the bottom of the holder.

Pull the sides up to make it stand.
Cut the corners about 1/4" from the 1st score line on a diagonal, punch holes for the ribbon and tie.

The finished product is 4" tall, 3 1/2" wide and
1 1/2" deep.

I hope you like it and will try one.  They are very easy to make...
