Valentine's Day Treat Cylinder



I saw this great Valentine's Day Treat Cylinder on Dianne's website here and decided to try them out. The following pictures and directions are hers from her blog:

Start with two bottoms from the Sizzix Baskets & Blooms die.  Then, cut a piece of Acetate (also called a transparency or a window sheet), to 6 1/4" wide x 5" tall.  They are available at your local office supply store. They are cover weight sheets for reports. (8 1/2 x 11)

Place a piece of sticky tape on one side (5" long) The piece will make a cylinder approx 6" in circumference. The cylinder will flex as you place the top/bottom on. Bend the bottom so it will fold over the edges of the tube.


Cut a strip of cardstock 1" x 6 1/2". Use the scallop border punch along the edge, and then sticky tape along the edge (non scalloped edge)


Fill the cylinder with candy, then punch holes on the sides of the cylinder and the top to thread the ribbon through.  I added a scallop punched piece on the top and some hearts from the heart to heart punch all around the cylinder.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Love You Much
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette
Accessories:  Scallop edge punch, scallop punch, circle punch, heart to heart punch, ribbon
