I have made the folded treat holders for as long as I can remember! I have made and created different sizes. The 6x6 is my favorite size to use for small treats.
I hope you enjoy the instructions on how to make the folded treat holder!
Here you go:

Cut your B&T paper 6x6.


Fold the paper corner to corner.

Fold the top of the paper to the bottom.

Take each corner and fold in. Making sure you use your bone folder for this step.
Glue down each side with strong adhesive. 

Now take the top (black paper) and glue
down over the front of the holder.

images, black shimmer trim, dots, and more to your

Feel So Blessed September SOTM and Falling for You Grateful Card


Happy September 1st!! I am ready for the cooler temperatures here in Utah and excited for fall! It's my favorite time of year! 
I am excited to share this elegant card with you today! I used our pretty September SOTM and the NEW Falling for you papers! This card is so much prettier in person with all that gold detail! The leaves and sentiment were embossed in gold. I can't tell you how much I LOVE the new leaves embossing folder!! You're going to love it!!
The feathers were colored using Q-tips! Yes, Q-tips! I sponged the feathers with a little bit of color from the ink pads first, then took a couple of Q-tips and colored each section of the feather to create a darker shade. This technique is fun but it takes a little patience! 
I love this SOTM! You can use this for so many papercrafting projects!
