Santa Tag Treat Holder

by Twila Davis

Use punches and simple shapes to make a fun holiday favor.


  • Cardstock in red, black, white, yellow (scraps of Stampin' Up!® Real Red, Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Whisper White cardstocks used here)
  • Ribbon (White Glittered Organdy Ribbon used here)
  • Paper cutter
  • Scissors
  • Punches (SU Tag Topper, 1 3/8" Scallop Circle, 1/4" Circle used here)
  • Adhesive (Mono Liquid Glue and Dimensionals used here)
  • Treats and small bag to tuck inside


  1. Step 1

    To make Santa's suit:
    Cut red cardstock to 2" x 8 1/2". On the long side score at 3 3/4" and 4 3/4". Punch both long ends with a tag punch or cut with a tag or border die.

  2. Step 2

    To make Santa's belt:
    Cut black cardstock to 3/4" x 8 1/2". From this cut it down again to a 6" piece. Score at 1", 2", 4"and 5". From the remaining piece cut a piece to 7/8" x 3/4".

  3. Step 3

    Adhere the belt to the suit as shown using glue or other adhesive.

  4. Step 4

    Cut a piece of yellow cardstock to 1 1/8" x 1".

    To make Santa's beard:
    Punch a scalloped circle from white cardstock and cut some of the top off.

    For a button, punch out a 1/4" circle with black cardstock.

  5. Step 5

    Attach the yellow cardstock to the front of the belt and add the 7/8" x 3/4" piece of Black on top of the Yellow piece with a Dimensional.

    Layer the two white cardstock pieces together with glue and adhere to the top of the suit underneath the small hole.

  6. Step 6

    Add some small treats to a bag and put inside treat holder. (The belt will hold treats in, thus bigger treats may not require a bag.)

  7. Step 7

    Cut a 5" piece of ribbon and tie it to the top to complete the project.
