Here are some very cool little Twisted Treat Holders that you can make in minutes – they would be perfect for place setting treats at your dinner table or party favors…

They are the perfect size to hold a few candies – to give you an idea of how big they are, approximately 5 Hershey Kisses will fit inside.  They are made simply from a piece of patterned paper and you can theme it to suit your occasion, adding embellishments and ribbons as wished…

Here is my tutorial so that you can make your own Twisted Treat Holders – at the end of this tutorial you will find a printable version too so that you can print it out and keep it for reference.

Cut a piece of patterned paper to be 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″…

Apply a strip of strong adhesive such as Sticky Strip to one of the short edges…

And roll over and adhere to the other short edge to create a tube…

At one end take your fingers and squash the edges together…

Open up and apply a piece of Sticky Strip inside and firmly push down to adhere them together…

To give a neat finishing touch and to make your seal stronger, use a Paper Crimper…

Place your sealed end into it and run it through for- 2-3 turns…and this is what you will have…

Turn your tube around 90 degrees and at the other end, push the ends together – this will give your container a twisted look…apply a piece of Sticky Strip but do not peel off the tape to expose the adhesive just yet…

Fill your container with candies…

Peel off the tape on your Sticky Strip and push together to seal the second end…

Run this end through your Paper Crimper…

And there you have your filled, Twisted Treat Holder ready for embellishing…

Here is my first one – I used paper from Candy Cane Christmas and added a piece of 1/4″ Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon to the top…I stamped a greeting from Tags til Christmas and attached it to a shape I punched out using my Scallop Square Punch…

And here is my other one…again, using papers from Candy Cane Christmas…I added a piece of 1/4″ Real Red Grosgrain to the top and made my sentiment tag using stamps from Fabulous Phrases and Season of Joy, punching out circles using my 1″ and 1 1/4″ Circle Punches…

And there you have some very cute Twisted Treat Holders bound to please those lucky enough to receive them!
