INSTRUCTIONS
1. Cut EE card to 12cm x 21.5cm. With card in landscape position score at 7cm, 8cm, 15cm and 16cm.  Turn card 90º to portrait position and score down 1cm at each side. Cut away side pieces as shown on the diagram. (Leave side pieces from the 3rd and 4th horizontal score lines and below. The 1cm side pieces above these score lines are all removed.) The remaining side pieces will become tabs to fold into your treat holder. At the 4th horizontal score line cut along the score 1cm just until you hit the intersecting vertical side score line.
2. Measure 2cm up from the bottom right of the treat holder. Draw a line in pencil from this mark to the 1cm side score line at the bottom left of the treat holder and cut that portion away. Stamp random patterns using a stamp from the baroque motif stamp set over the outside of the treat holder.
3. Now fold along all score lines. Use strong adhesive or sticky tape on the tabs and adhere in place. Place a Kit Kat chocolate inside.
4. On WW card measuring 8cm x 5cm, stamp ‘to do list’ from the ‘eat chocolate’ stamp set and adhere to inside top flap of treat holder. On another small piece of WW card, stamp ‘birthday wishes’ and punch out using the word window punch. Adhere to inside of treat holder. 5. Make a belly band to keep the treat holder closed.  Take a 3.5cm strip of WW card and layer EE card and real red ribbon on top. Fold it around the closed treat holder, with the ends meeting in the middle at the front.
6. Stamp ‘I would give up chocolate...’ on WW card using versamark, then early espresso ink. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat to set. Punch out shape with corresponding punch. Use the 2-way glue pen and glitter to add sparkle if desired. Punch out 2 more shapes in RR card and cut in half so that they create a border behind the white punched shape. Use dimensionals to attach to belly band. Place so that it hides the join at the front of the belly band.
7. Slide the band in place and your treat is complete.
