The inspiration for this fun little "sweet treat hanger" came from one we saw on "Creations by Patti". The finished size is 6-1/2" x 3-1/4" plus the tab. We used Real Red card stock and Certainly Celery DSP for the card. The letters J and Y were cut out of Real Red using the Big Shot die Serif Essentials. The holly leaves were made by punching the large oval with Old Olive and then free-hand cutting the rest. We did score down the center and highlight the edges with a white gel pen. We also sponged with Old Olive. The berries are Real Red 1/2" circles. White highlights were added to these as well.
Here are a few more details: 6-1/2" x 3-1/4" Real Red c/s; 6-1/2"x 3" Certainly Celery DSP; 2-5/8" square in Real Red c/s; round tab punch in Old Olive; 16" Artichoke 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon; 2 jumbo eyelets; sweet treat cup; Christmas M
Punch a 1-3/4" circle in the center of the DSP. At the top of the DSP, punch a small portion of the small oval - about a quarter of it. To attach the Sweet Treat cup, DO NOT remove the adhesive, apply your own adhesive (we used Tombow) to the top of the rim and glue to the back of the DSP. Attach the Old Olive tab to the top of the 2-5/8" square of Real Red. Lay this over the back of the Sweet Treat cup - DO NOT GLUE. Apply adhesive to the back of the DSP leaving space around the Real Red square. You do NOT want to glue the square as this is what moves up and down to let the candy out without tearing up the hanger. Attach the Real Red back piece. Don't forget you need to punch a 1-3/4" circle in the Real Red back as well so that when you slide the tab out, the candy can come out the back (and you can refill it).
We filled our cup with Christmas M&Ms - they are white with red and green designs - Christmas trees, packages, words, etc.
We hope you have fun creating these. We think you could make these for any occasion!
