The Queen's Royal Court Blog Hop Day #7 - PSA Essentials

I am linking up for the first time with Skip To My Lou's Made By You...

Happy Sunday Everyone and Welcome to the last day of The Queen's Royal Court Week Long Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from The Queen's blog then you are on the right track, if not head their to start from the beginning.

Everyday this week we have been featuring PSA Essentials, with a little twist of back to school thrown in. Today I am showing you a step by step tutorial on how I created the candy bar holder I shared with you on Monday. Just to warn you this is going to be a LONG post but I did not want to miss a step!!! So lets get starts........
Most of the things I used for my project.
  • Start with a piece of card stock 5"x 6" - I used card stock by Recollections
  • Score 2 3/4" and then fold 
  • Mark 1 3/4" down on the fold & cut

  • Score the short side to were you just made the cut.
  • Fold down to make your flap, then crease with bone folder. 
  • Punch the flap with a boarder punch - I used a Martha Stewart Boarder Punch
  • Fold the short side over with the flap to cover the base of the paper. You should have about a 1/2" left over on the left. Now we are going to make a flap to create the pocket.
  • Cut 2 3/4" down or till you meet the flap.  
  • Turn the paper so we can cut the top strip off.
  • The bottom corner should be on the 2" mark, then cut off so it is at an angle.
  • Then score the flap.
  • This is what the base should look like. 
  • Use Red Sticky Tape to adhere.
  • Put the candy bar in place, then fold flap over top flap to create the pocket. 
  •  This is what it should look like before you embellish.
  • Pattern Paper by Cosmo Cricket - 3" x 2 1/2"
  • Scalloped Circle by EK Success - 2"
  • Circle punch by Creative Memories - 1 1/2" & 1 1/4" 

  • I colored my image with my Bic Write It Markers.
  • Punch whole in tag
  • Add ribbon, I add a strip of adhesive to the ribbon to hold it in place. Then tie a bow.
  • Sentiment stamp by My Pink Stamper's Brand New Stamp Set "School Days".
  • I trimmed the tag by hand with my scissors.
  • Added My Tag With Pop Dots.
  • A little tip to save money on adhesives, save and cut up your pop dot packages. 
My finished project, I added a little adhesive to the back of my candy bar to keep it from slipping out.
If you are still reading this I am impressed!! I hope I did not bore you to much or confuse you ( I should have just done a video), if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
