Making Christmas Bright Self-Closing Treat Holder

Today’s project is a remix of a treat holder I shared in June 2017! It’s a Mini Self-Closing Treat Holder using the new Dashing with Cheer Designer Series Paper and the Making Christmas Bright Bundle!

It’s sized perfectly to fit a Dove Chocolate! How cute is that?!? I didn’t capture it in the photo, but the top of the bulb is punched out of Silver Foil paper – what a fun stamp set & punch bundle! Here’s a closer look at the Making Christmas Bright stamp set:

And the Designer Series Paper I used comes from the Dashing Along Host Promotion we have this month! Orders or workshops of $250 or more will earn a pack of the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper FREE! Here’s a look at the beautiful patterns:


I made one minor tweak to the measurements from my original project, so check out the updated measurements below. Here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template:

  1. Julie,
    these are sooooo sweet!! Having a class reunion and thinking of making these as favours for the attendees!!!
    You are extremely talented.

    1. I love those little treat holders. You are so clever. I have made about 30 of them already from a different posting. Thanks for all your hard work in creating these little things for those of us who aren’t so talented in designing.

Have a question or comment? I’d love to hear from you!
