Crimper Techniques: Sealed Wrappers

Crimped Treat
Use your crimper to seal the ends of cute little treat wrappers for any event. Or, adhere one to a "Thank-You" card. Mine is a Swiss Delice Chocolate from Costco.

Apply adhesive to 3 sides of a 3 in. square of DSP. Wrap the chocolate and crimp the ends to seal the wrapper.

Crimper Sealed Favour

I used a 3 X 6 piece of  Designer Series Paper to make the favour. Join the 3 in. sides with Sticky Strip, then crease about 1/2 in on each end in opposite directions. Adhere the ends with Sticky Strip and crimp the ends. Don't forget to fill the container with a treat!

The leaf is a punched scallop oval folded in half lengthwise and crimped at an angle.

Follow the photo tutorial below for the flower.

Crimped Pleated Flower
Cut a strip of Designer Series Paper 1 1/8 in. x 6 in. and use the Scallop Edge punch on one long side.

Run the strip through the crimper. Then use a bone folder to pinch the folds together against your thumbnail along the straight side.
Overlap and adhere the ends of the strip together.

Push the centre down and form the flower. I used a scrap of card stock and Sticky Page on the back of the flower.

Turn the flower over and use another scrap of card stock and Sticky Page in the centre. Then, punch and secure with a brad.
