"All Aboard"

I made 50 of these pull up M&M holders for a mom at Molly's preschool. Her son is having a Thomas The Train party. These are thank you gifts for these who come to the party. It is hard to see but on the red band I stamped Thank you from Cheery Chat in Real Red. You can see it in real life. It was just hard to get a good picture. She gave me the Thomas The Train stickers to put on the pull tag. They were a lot of work but I think they turned out great. Here are the directions for them.

24 inches of Ribbon (red)
7 X 3 ½ Brilliant Blue(back)
6 ½ X 3 ½ Brilliant Blue (front)
2 ½ X 7 Real Red(wrap around)
1 of 1 ¾ X 1 ¾ (stamped image)
2 X 2 (mat) (black)
Rectangle hole punch
¼ inch hole punch
Corner rounder
Score ½ inch from 3 sides. Two long and one short.
Round corners on top of back piece
Cut flaps to form a box
Punch ¼ inch hole in top of the piece you are using for the front
Tear the wrap around piece
Stamp on the 1 ¾ piece adhere to the mat
Use rectangle punch on 2 sides of the M&M’s (top and bottom)
Tie the ribbon from the bottom of the candy to the top of the candy and through the hole and tag so that the candy can be pulled from the box with out untying the ribbon.
