"M&M Pull Up Holder"

I decided to make something for the Principal and Vice Principal at school. I bought two of the quart sized paint cans and I was going to fill them with wrapped candy. WRONG! Turns out that they aren't tall enough for the M&M holders or the Wrapped Hershey Bars. So I guess I will just have to put them in a cello bag with the other goodies that I am making, and save the paint cans for another project. I will take a picture of everything together when I am done. I made 50 of these M&M holders last year for a lady and I said that I was never going to make them again. They were a lot of work, well, I was wrong again. I made more. LOL

Here is how these work. There is a ribbon tied around the bottom of the M&M package and then tied at the top with a bow, when you pull the bow up, the candy pops out. Super cute ha?
Stamps: Trick or Treat
Paper: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Creepy Crawly DP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Tangerine Grosgrain, Orange Stickles, M&M's, Hand Held Rectangle and Circle punch, Corner Rounder

Here are the directions to make these.

Another excellent treat Favor. You have such wonderful ideas!

Do I tape the front scored and flapped piece to the back or does the wrap around hold things together? Jenny

You glue the front and back (black) pieces together to form a box. The wrapped piece (with the designer paper) is just a decoration. It doesn't hold the box closed. I hope that answered your question.
