(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.
