Directions for Popcorn Cover:
1.      Take the 7 ½” x 9 ½” piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and score it on the long side at  ½” & 5” then crisply fold using the bone folder.
2.      Attach a strip of sticky strip to the narrow area.  You want this part to be inside the cover, so carefully hook the pieces together.
3.      Using the Crop-a-dile, punch 2 holes 3/16” overlapping them and going thru both layers of the DSP. 
a.      Thread the 20” of the ribbon thru the holes.
b.      Now put the bag of microwave popcorn in the middle (see the center photo), push down into the cover then tie knot/bow in the ribbon to secure the popcorn.

Directions for the Christmas Stocking Card: 
1.       Score the Cherry Cobbler Card Stock (5 ½” x 11”) at 5 ½’.  Crisply fold.
a.      Place over the main stocking part of the die, bringing it a bit down to keep the fold intact.
b.      Now use the Whisper White (5 ½ x 8 ½) and cut out all the pieces on the die.
                                                              i.      The stocking piece will be used for the inside of the card.
                                                            ii.      Sponge the cuff, heel, and toe pieces with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink.
                                                          iii.      Either trim the white stocking to fit the inside of the card OR stamp the Merry Christmas image and punch out with the scallop circle punch plus one more to sign.
1.      Glue your choice inside the stocking card.
                                                           iv.      Glue the cuff, heel and toe to the stocking.  The cuff will be place higher than the top of the stocking and will be centered left to right.
c.       Attach stocking to the popcorn cover using dimensionals.  Be careful how you place them as you don’t want to block the hole for the ribbon.
Attach the large button using glue dots.

If you would like to see a video that I did last year on how to make a Cocoa/Chocolate Bar Slider (smaller version of the popcorn cover), you can find it on the KreatesKards YouTube Channel.
