Gifts continued...

This candy bar cover I kept simple and just made it by measuring it to fit the candy bar and scoring the fold lines to fit around it. I messed up twice, and finally my 3rd one I got right!

I didn't get a picture of this all opened to show the inside that had the pockets which held tea bags. I was in a hurry so I didn't take the time to open it up and do so.
So as you untie the ribbons it opens up to six panels with each having a pocket, which I created and punched a scalloped circle in the middle of each pocket to show the name of the tea on the tea bag. The pattern is a free download from Papertreyink.com it's their timeless templates. They're lots of fun to make, and look so pretty when finished! You can make it for whatever you want to, not just for holding tea. They give you some great ideas and examples. I had seen somewhere on some one's blog (can't remember for sure where) the idea of putting tea in it. So it was inspired by who ever I originally saw it from.

This little box was lots of fun and so easy to make! The instructions for making it are here.
