Nutcracker Solider Punch Art with Two Tag Die Holder

DSCN2661Hi Everyone! A few of these nutcracker Snicker bars survived a trip to my tummy LOL :) to add a treat to my punch art nutcracker. I purposely tried to make his face look toyish.

DSCN2657I'll update the punches and such later this morning as I have to get ready for work! Talk to you soon! Dee
Update: I was looking for a quick way to make a holder for the candy bar size and thought "Two Tag Die!" 115954.

Take a 2-1/2" x 9" piece of Whisper White card stock 100730. Fold short ends together to make a 2-1/2 x 4-1/2" strip. Die cut card stock making sure the fold stay INSIDE the bottom of the tag. (won't be cut).

Center the tag on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool 122334  using the center 0 ruller mark. Score 1/4" each side of fold. (It has a 0 ruler mark in Two tag
the middle of the ruler strip.)

 Simply scored

Fold score lines. This act a gusset to hold your candy. Using the 1" Circle punch - punch handles. Use Mini Glue dots to keep candy in place. Tie with Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon 126847.
