Easy Treat Holder: Gum Package

Do you need a super easy gift for someone?
You will LOVE this easy gift and it's super FAST!  It always helps when something is adorable as well, right?  Here's what we will be making today so grab a pack of gum and get ready to make a package for it!  I plan on making these for some of the staff at my school.  Ronda Wade showed me how to make these and I am in LOVE with them!
Directions for making this Gum Holder:
1. Grab a 6x6 sheet of Designer Series Paper (any pattern).  
2. Put Sticky Strip or Fast Fuse (I used Fast Fuse) on 3 sides/ edges.  
3. Put the gum packet in the middle of the paper and fold in (like you are wrapping a present) the side that has NO adhesive on it.  
4.  Fold the opposite side up and over the non-adhesive side and adhere.
5. Press both sides together like above (since they already have adhesive on them, it should be easy).
6. Decorate as desired. 
I used the All is Calm Designer Series Paper to make these gifts, but you can use any variety of papers!
For both projects I stamped a monogram and layered punches to make it look super cute.  You can put a cute Christmas tag here instead!
Do you love the ribbon I used?  It's the Satin 5/8" ribbon, you get 10 yards for only $5.95.  It comes in 4 basic colors: white, vanilla, silver and gold which makes it perfect for gift giving!

Let me know if you have questions!  See you tomorrow!
