Cocoa Test Tube Holder Tutorial - Lisa Somerville

A few years ago I had stumbled across Test Tubes at my local craft store and thought they'd be fun to use in various projects. It all started out with a simple Single Test Tube Holder that I created, then came the Double, Triple and Quad Holders (all templates are available on my blog sidebar).  Over the years, I've altered my patterns for various images I wanted to incorporate with the holders.

The fab Van Houten's Cocoa image is from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder Plate, and I thought it would would perfectly with the Test Tubes.  I did have to create a new pattern to accommodate the larger ATC sized image.

Card Stock – 5-1/2” x 11-3/8”
1" Circle Punch
Score Board or Scoring Tool

Score each side at 1-1/4”

Score as follows:
5/8”, 1-7/8”, 6”, 7-1/4”

Punch circles with 1” circle punch

I added a 3” x 4” panel to stick up behind the Test Tubes (not shown)

Card Stock cut and scored

If you use the Test Tube Template, or any of the others I have designed on my blog, I'd love to see them!

Happy Stampin'!
