Quick 'n Easy Pixie Stix Holders

Hello Friends & Followers!  Thanks for joining me today for the first of three (I KNOW!) posts.  This one is dedicated to TSG's parade of quick & easy treat holders, and it doesn't get any easier than these Pixie Stix holders!  I first got the idea from Jami Sibley in this post.  Here is my version of it with a cute pumpkin from Bugs & Hisses and some patterned paper from the paper Studio:

(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution)  I basically follow Jami's directions to a 'T' for this 7-stix holder (mine only has 6 in it but it holds 7) made from a 4.5" x 5" piece of cardstock scored at 1.25", 1.5", 3.5" and 3.75".  Then you rotate the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 1/4".  You snip the 1/4" scores up to where they intersect the other score lines (this will be the bottom of your pixie stix holder) and secure with super tacky tape or your adhesive of choice.  I actually use scotch tape - it is on the back and the bottom, no one sees it anyway, and it is cheaper than using up my Monomulti.  I think the patterned paper panel ended up being 2" x 4" and then I used nesting circle punches in 1 1/4" and 1 1/8".  It honestly takes just a few minutes to make and you can have a lot of fun mixing and matching different colors, small images and patterned papers.  Kids love them and they can hold pencils just as easily as Pixie Stix for the diabetic trick-or-treaters.
     Be sure to stop by the TSG Blog for more treat holder creations from the talented TSG Trendsetters!  I am sure they will inspire you will all kinds of great ideas.
     Enjoy!  Hope you will stop by for my other two posts later today.

Gosh, I don't think I've eaten a Pixie Stix in years! Loved those things as a kid, especially the giant ones in the plastic tubes. :-) This is a great project. So glad you could join in the fun with us. :-) Hugs!
