Scallop Tag Topper Punch Easter Egg Holder

I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to  make these Easter Egg Treat Holders.  They were simple to make, and I really like when my punches can be used for a lot of different projects. 

Here is how I made them:

I cut my Card Stock to measure 2" x 11" and then punched each end.

I scored my cut piece at 4 3/4" x 6 1/4" and then folded on the score lines.  This is where I placed my plastic candy filled egg.  I placed Sticky Strip on the bottom and two sides of the egg sides that were attached to the holder.  I also placed a piece of Sticky Strip right under the punched top on the left hand side and pressed the two punched ends together.  This created a good hold for the egg.

Here is a side view with the egg inside.

I wrapped a piece of Designer Series Paper measuring 3/4" x 5 1/4" around the top, and embellished with a coordinating button and some ribbon to the top.  My sentiment from the Eggstrata Spectacular Stamp Set was punched out with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and placed on with a Dimensional.  I coordinated my egg with the Card Stock color, but you really could decorate them any way you want depending on who you are making them for.  A fun and easy project to make using a new punch from the Occasions Catalog.
