Merry Christmas Treat Tube

Treat Tubes are a nice size to give a small treat to someone to show you are thinking about them.  Treat Tubes are perfect for M&Ms, Skittles, other small candies, and small nuts.  You can also put small office supplies such as paper clips inside.

I was going to do a video of this, but since I will probably have Jury Duty all next week if I am selected, I am just posting it.  I will start doing videos again in January.

~ Score the 4-1/2” side at 1”, 2”, 3”, 4”.
Treat Tube Holder Scoring Template~Fold all score lines.
Treat Tube cutting & DSP~Cut score lines and tabs as shown.  Look on both the front and the back.
~Mark the Inside Front Top Flap with an X between the score lines.  Use your ¾” Circle Punch to punch a hole with the X centered in the Punch Hole.
~Cut your DSP:  Four:  ¾” x 2-3/4”
3.  Assemble:
~Attach your four DSP Strips.  This is so much easier to do when the cardstock is flat!

~Put Glue on the Bottom Flaps:  on the Outside Back and Side, on the Inside of the Front Bottom Flap.
~Now put Glue on the Top Tabs around your Circle.  Slide them all in at the same time.  Stick your Finger through the Hole and rub the Tabs as well as you can to get the Glue to hold well.

4.  Tag and Finishing.
~Put filled Treat Tube in your Treat Tube Holder.
~Thread Mini Tinsel Trim through Tag hole.  Wrap Tinsel around Treat Tube and thread through hole again.  Tie a bow.
