Treat Yourself!

Treat Tents using Fanfare Papers
You've seen them and now it's time to add them to your papercrafting repertoire! They're called treat tents and they can be made any size at all. This little trio is ready to march into a birthday party or even a picnic on the 4th of July. Use a bit of adhesive or a glue dot to adhere a little bag of special treats inside the tent and you'll be all ready to make your guests smile. 

Are you ready to make your own? Start with a piece of cardstock cut 3" x 9". Beginning at one short end, score the piece at 3-1/2", 5", and 8-1/2". This will give you a substantial base on which to rest the tent along with a 1/2" flap to fold over the top of the tent. This gives your project a cute finished look. I rounded the corners of the flap and sponged with a bit of coordinating ink to complete the look. 

The front of the tent is based on a 3" x 3" card pattern from the awesome pattern book entitled Wishes. Papers featured here are from the Fanfare collection. Enjoy!
