Valentine's Bottled Water Treat - Part 2

Here is the one from Chic n Scratch. She has a blog and YouTube videos, so I thought I would check out the difference and see what I thought. Honestly, this one uses less paper, but takes just as much time cutting. This treat holder is more obscure measurements, so it takes a bit longer doing all the cuts, but Dawns eats three times the paper. I think it is just personal preference, as they are equally cute. You could fit three or four packets or other goodies in the box, but this one is a snug fit for just one, making it much more secure and less likely to lose one along the way.
Base paper is 2x7 3/4, then scored at 2 inches on each end. The inner piece of B&T is 3 1/4x1 7/8 and it does NOT go all the way down. Build the scalloped circle pieces like in the previous post and use brads to seal the sides. It allows a little wiggle room when you insert the packet.
Thanks for looking! April
