Witch Way For Treats?...Edited!

This way, of course!!!  Welcome to another edition of the Showcase Showdown at The Digi Shack!  Today's project features another Halloween image.  Simple and easy to use...this witches hat and broom can be used on many projects.  I colored them with my Copics, cut them out and popped them up for dimension on my candy bar slider.  I also added a bit of Sakura Stardust pen to the hat's buckle and the wire on the broom...just a hint of sparkle.  The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado set and the paper is from Making Memories.  Ribbon is probably Offray, but it was in my stash so I'm not 100% sure.

I did make a tutorial for this once...if you would like for me to post it, please just leave a comment and let me know.  :O)  Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations...links are on the sidebar!  Have a sweet day!

ETA Tutorial!

1)  Take a piece of 6x6 cardstock and score at ½” and 3 ¼”.  Fold and crease well along these score lines.

2)  Add ½” Sticky Tape to the entire length of the ½” strip and the center section at one end as pictured.

3)  Fold the cardstock up and punch a hole in the center of the top end (NOT the taped end) using a regular sized hole punch.  

4)  Open back up and peel off the tape backing and adhere.  Burnish well to ensure strong adhesion.

5)  On the closed end, score 2 lines to create a decorative edge.

6)  Decorate the front of your cover any way you like.

7)  Using approximately 24” of ribbon, thread one end through both holes you previously punched.

8)  Take your chocolate bar and insert it into the holder pushing the ribbon down with it.  Make sure that your ribbon goes in evenly on the front and back.

9)  Tie your ribbon and cut off any excess.

10)  By grabbing the end of the chocolate bar (or the wrapper), you can now slide it in and out freely.  Congratulations!  Your chocolate bar slider is now ready to give to someone special!
