Sweet Treat Cups

Hi All,

The last few days I've been a playing with the 'sweet treat cups'. Trying to come up with different ideas - so that I'm not just using the 'Something Sweet' stamp set designed to go with them.

I came across some 'Millions' sweets..........Very tasty.........LOL!!
Unfortunately, I could only get them in strawberry flavour; so pink started to become a familiar theme!

Firstly, came a hat..........'s very straight forward. I sandwiched the filled treat cup between two layers of card (which I had already cut) and I'd used the perforating tool to semi cut the card stock, so that access can be made to get to the sweeties.
Finally completing with ribbon and flower from the 'pretties kit'.

Next came the gumball machine (using the stamp set). This time, I made a spinner with holes in the back. It's fixed in place using a brad, you can just see it below the treat cup.

Lastly, I made a flower - the petals are formed using the large oval punch; which I then trimmed down with the 1 3/4" circle punch so that they sit perfectly around the curve of the cup.

The bee is incorporated on a slider, which when pulled................

..........reveals a couple of holes. I actually sealed this one with foil...........I was fed up with trying to regain control of the sweets, also my boys were a hoovering.........need I say more!!

I managed to make the three cards out of one packet of sweets..........bargain I say.......... and that even was taking in to account of wastage.....LOL!!
Hope you've enjoyed, give it a go..........I'd love to see what you come up with. If you need any sweet treat cups or anything else just drop me a line.
Happy Crafting,

    I love your sweet treat cards. Great idea using the brad with the spinner on the gumball card. Please bring them with you Tuesday so that we can have a closer look.
