Door Hanger Treat Box Weekend Project

Here is a fun door know treat holder to make. You can hang these on your neighbors door filled with treats. You can bring them to work and hang them on co-worker's doors filled with candies or office supplies!!! There's lots of ways to use these treat hangers. Kids and adults alike would have fun making and receiving these!!!

For mine I use the Stampin' Up! "Haunting" jumbo wheel. The same one I used for the tin can yesterday. It was so easy to color and I thought I would work with it once more. I was using glossy card stock anyway. I chose glossy because it's a bit stiffer than the regular white. I wanted it to have some substance to it, after all it is to give away and I want it to be durable, plus it's going to be holding CHOCOLATE!!!!!

To make this holder you will need a piece of glossy card stock cut 7-3/4" x 11. You will be scoring your card stock as follows. On the shorter side score at 2" and 5-2/4". On the long side score at 2" and 3" and also score at 4" but only score up to the long score line on each side. You don't want to score all the way across because this is a flap for the backside of the holder. It's what will keep the holder together as a pocket.

Now turn your card stock around so the shorter side is back were it was at the beginning. You are going to be scoring at the 1 inch mark from the bottom to the first score line you you come to. You really don't NEED to score here, you can mark it off with a ruler since this piece is going to be removed. I just found it easier to score it and then cut on the score line so it is straight.

Once you are done scoring, snip the parts that need snipping (see photo for that) and cut away those bottom two corner rectangles. You can click on the photo for a closer view.

To decorate your card stock stamp your images on the shiny side. But remember when you form the pocket the back of the card stock will be folded over to the front (where I have the words on mine). Fold your score lines up so you know which way to stamp the image on the other side. It's very easy to figure out. Now that I see mine with the candy in it I wish I would have stamped my images closer to the door knob hole so you can see them better. But this was my first one so I can fix it on future ones!!

Once you have gotten the stamping done Use the Coluzzle to make the hole for the door knob. I used the 4th circle from the center. Now use the Stampin' Up! Sticky Strip to tape it together. You really do need some strong tape for this. You do want it to stay taped!!!

This is really a fun and easy project to do. These would be great too for a teacher gift. You can have everything cut and scored for the kids and let them color away!!

The front of this is designed for you to tape your business card on if you are planning on using it to promote yourself!!

I can't believe Halloween Week is nearing the end. But that doesn't mean there won't be more 3D Halloween items coming. After all there is still a half a month to go!!!!

This item was made using Stampin' Up! products. To view more items made using Stampin' Up! products click here.

This is a wonderful thing, thanks for posting the photo. Going to give this one a try since we are going to be at the nursing home handing out cards we can leave these at the girl's friends before we go. GREAT JOB!
