Candy Cane treat holder

We always give a food type gift to our mailmen (there are two), UPS man and the lady at the post office (she is a real sweetie) plus our trash pickup guys. So anyway I always add on a thing of candy canes. I usually just put the candy canes in a cellophane bag, make a patterned paper topper, and staple it on. Boring. This year I wanted to make something using some of my stuff that I just HAD to have. So I made these very simple, yet not as simple as usual, candy cane treat holder things. I used my nestabilities, big shot, scor-pal, stamps and ribbon. I think they look cuter than my usual ones. Stamp, real red ink and cardstock (whisper white and real red) from Stampin' Up. Also used nestabilities plain and scalloped circle and the scor-pal for all the scoring. The ribbon is from somewhere that I can't remember. Probably Walmart. Also a magnetic mat (for the nestabilities) came in very handy for this project.
