Explosion Treat Holder for Ghirardelli Squares with Video Tutorial

Today’s project is by popular request – an Explosion Treat Holder sized for Ghirardelli Squares!

Here’s a different angle:

And here are a couple views of what it looks like open:

All you need is a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper to create this, so you can make 4 of them out of a 12″ x 12″ piece of paper!

PLEASE NOTE: The Ghirardelli Squares I used do not have any special filling in them, so they are a little bit thinner than the ones with filling.

The treat holder closes securely with magnets and I share a trick in the video tutorial how to line the magnets up in the perfect spot!

MAGNETS: I purchased the magnets I used for today’s project from Total Element. They are based in the US and offer FREE shipping! Yay!

Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template I created:
