Valentines Day Hanger

Instructions to make Treat Holders at home:

(This instructions can be sized down or sized up to suit your needs. But these instructions are for a 9x9 square of cardstock.)

1. You will need a 9x9 square of paper, something to score your paper with, heavy duty tape, crop-a-dile (or other setting tool), ribbon, and brads.

2. Using a scoring tool, score a line down the middle of your square. This line will be scored at 4.5 inches.
3. The next two lines will be scored from one corner to the next, opposite corner. Do this twice to get a X mark on your page.
Your page should now look like this:
4. Fold all score marks to achieve a folded paper that looks like this:

5. Using a heavy duty tape, apply tape to the inside folds and secure down.
6. Again using the heavy duty tape, apply tape to the inside of the treat holder as shown below.
7. Pull each flap toward the opposite side of the holder. This will bend the holder into shape. Secure the flaps down. The treat holder will now maintain its shape.
. Using the crop-a-dile, attach brads to each side and string ribbon through to create a handle. 
9. Decorate as desired.
