Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Bunny Hop – Vellum Treat Tubes
I haven’t really spent too much time playing with Vellum in the past, but since the Occasions Catalogue went live in January it’s been popping up on amazing projects all over the place and I’m finding I’m using more than ever before.
I love the translucent quality of Vellum and how it softens everything it covers and thought it would be the perfect material to make a more grown-up Easter treat holder that didn’t need much extra embellishment and I think I was right 🙂
The little tube I created for today’s project only needs a 5″ x 5″ square of Vellum, so you can get two from each A4 piece. I added a little interest and texture to my Vellum square by running it through the Big Shot with the Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder. This is one of those extra thick folders that give a really deep impression and it’s absolutely gorgeous. The pictures in the catalogue don’t do it justice at all, it actually embosses little sequin shapes onto the cardstock, make sure you take a look at the close-ups, it is so pretty!
After I’d embossed my square I scored it at 1/2″, 1-3/4″, 2-3/4″ & 4″, carefully folded and burnished my score lines and adhered the ends together using Tear n’ Tape. You will see the adhesive on Vellum which didn’t bother me for this project, but do make sure to keep the join at the back to keep the front pretty 🙂
I made two little toppers from 3″x 3-1/4″ pieces of Sweet Soiree DSP for each end and have a simple pictorial tutorial above that will show you how. The border punch I used is not available any more, but any other one would work just as well or you could use something like the Best Badge Punch to create a scalloped edge.
The toppers are the same size as the tube and are a snug fit, but I liked it that way as they don’t fall off easily. I adhered the bottom one in place, but the top one, with a bow of Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon and a simple sentiment, is removable and acts more like a lid.
I thought I’d share a few ideas of what will fit in these little holders and was surprised with the variety of goodies that would fit. The little chick with smarties is from Aldi, but all the others are readily available at any supermarket – lots of options for different budgets 🙂
I hope you liked my fourth project in this year’s Bunny Hop series, they are so quick to make and would look just as sweet made from cardstock as well. I think these cuties will be going to school for some teacher gifts, a nice little treat to finish off a busy term 🙂
