Fabulous Friday and TUTORIAL!!

Hi Everyone! I am very excited to tell you that today I am being featured over at Scrappily Ever After!! Every Friday she will be featuring a different blog and this week its me!! :)
I have a SPECIAL PROJECT for you all! This is my first time making it and I am excited to share it with you!
Christmas Hand Sanitizer Holder
These gifts are perfect for co-workers, teachers, friends etc.. they each hold alittle hand sanitizer. I got mine from Bath and Body works (which they have Christmas scents in stock now!)
And here is a picture of the inside..

TUTORIAL


Cut two pieces of cardstock, one 3x10 and one 6 x 1 1/2.

Score! Score the big piece at 1, 2, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2. Then score the small piece at 1/2, 1 1/2, 4 1/2 and 5 1/2. Then still with the smaller piece, score at 1/4 the opposite direction that you just scored. After you are done scoring, fold along all score lines and cut your small piece to look like mine below...

Punch a hole! I do not have an oval punch from SU so I used my window word punch to punch my hole. I used punched over and over again until my hole was big enough for the hand sanitizer to fit.

Now you will attach your small cardstock to the bigger piece. Glue the bottom tabs of your small cardstock to your bigger piece as pictured below. After its secured to the bottom glue the sides to the back and the front of your holder.

Here is what it looks like all glued together. I also added cardstock to the inside to make it alittle nicer then just plain cardstock.
And now here is what it looks like with the hand sanitizer in it. To keep the hand sanitizer in place I put a small glue dot on the bottom.
Now decorate the cover how ever you would like. I decided to cut a deer from Christmas Solutions. I also added tulle to the top to make it look alittle fancier.

And here is a shot of the side...

Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog and reading my tutorial and a special thanks to Holly for featuring me on her blog today!!

Candace,
I love love this. What a great idea. I only have the word window punch as well, and it is so nice that I can use that for this project.
This post is put in my fav's so I can refer back to this.
Thanks so much for sharing

Love the colors and how your deer turned out. The touch of Tulle on top makes the whole thing come together and look like a gift. Great job!

I loved this when I saw it on Facebook and so happy that you posted a tutorial. I went to B&BW today and got the Christmas scents and the cupcake scents. Went to Joann's at got some paper and supplies. I don't have any punches, so I'm going to make the cuts on the cricut. I'm going to make some for co-worker gifts and some as gift card holders. Can't wait. I'll message you some pics.
