Blizzard Designer Wrapping Paper Treats

Sour Cream Container - This is a fun & simple way to package sweet treats!

Supplies needed:
<Stampin' Up! Cardstock, D.S.P or D.W.P. - Paper should be
5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Stamp paper as desired. Apply adhesive along one long side and one short side of paper (adhesive should form the letter "L"). Roll into a round tube and adhere.

Run this end through your crimper. You can now embellish as desired.

Wintergreen Scalloped Pouch

Basic Pouch Instructions

You can create 4 pouches using 1 piece of Stampin' Up!'s 12" x 12" Designer Series Papers. Cut into 6" X 6" squares.

Take a 6" X 6" square and fold it in half corner to corner. You should now have a triangle, place it on the table with the point facing up. The folded bottom should be parallel with the edge of your table.

Take the left corner and fold it across to the right side...not quite to the edge of the paper. The top of this section should be parallel with the bottom folded edge on the original triangle.

Take the right corner and fold it across to the left side...again, not quite to the edge of the paper. This too should be parallel with the bottom edge of the original triangle. Crease all folds.

Now it's time to form the pouch. Fold over one section of the top triangle. This will reveal the coordinating pattern of your paper and voila you have created a pouch. This fold should line up nicely with your first two folds. Sometimes you may need to adjusting your folds a bit. Embellish your pouch as desired and fill with goodies!

You can create the simply pouches using any size squares of Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Papers.

Happy Stampin'!

Cold Play Snowman Gum Holder

Gum Holder Instructions

Cut a piece of cardstock 2 1/4" x 8 1/2"
Score & fold at 2 1/2", 2 3/4", 5 3/4" and 6"

Punch a slot at one end of the cardstock using the Word Window Punch. Be sure the slot is atleast 1/2" from the end. A Helpful Tip: Center Word Window Punch on scored line at 2 1/2". This should position your slot perfectly. Next apply adhesive to the space above punched slot and secure down. Insert gum into holder. To hold your package closed you can secure by sliding a piece of ribbon under gum, fold down top flap and tie ribbon to secure closed. You can also use velcro to secure your package closed. Have fun creatin' these for all occasions.

Happy Stampin' and Blessings to you!
