Blue cardstock:

Scraps for dies

Home For Christmas Paper Pack:
(1) 1 1/4” x 2 1/4”
(1) 1” x 2 1/4” 
Scraps for dies

You will need your 4 x 11 sheet of paper. If you have 12 x 12 cardstock you would be able to make 3 from one sheet. 

Using score board score score at given measurements as given above in cutting and scoring directions. Here is also a template for you to follow. 

Take your scissors and cut where the red lines are on template

Measure down 2 2/4 on each side and trim a out piece as seen in photo below

The Brown piece is what your holder should look like once you have scored and trim away excess pieces.

 Using the smallest circle from the Stitched Nested Circles Die cut out circle as per template

 Apply Scor Tape as per picture 

Fold along all of your scored lines, peel Scor Tape and form box. What I do is I form the box before I peel my tape to see how it goes together. Your Test Tube Holder will look like the picture below.

The holder is formed and now to make it PRETTY!!!

 Cutting front and side panels cut as per picture

Front Panel- 1 1/4” x 2 1/4”(pattern paper)
          1 6/16”  x 2 7/16   (cardstock)       

Side Panel- 1” wide x 2 1/4” long (pattern paper)
                      1 2/16” wide x 2 6/16 long (card stock)

Once you have them cut glue them together with adhesive and apply them to your holder!

Step 9- Cut out all of your die cuts using dies and die cut machine. 

Step 10- Glue all of your decorations together and make take!

This is a rough layout out just to kind of show you placement.

Step 11- Time to add your completed embellishments to the holder as per picture.  Once that is done fill your test tube with your favorite Hot Chocolate.  I put roughly 3 Tbsp of Hot Chocolate, 1/2 a Tbsp of crushed Candy Cane and some small Marshmallows.  I also added some snow to certain areas of my holder.
