TREAT CUP STARS!!

We had a joint team Summer Mini Launch last week which was a lot of fun. Thanks to Ness who organised it all. Each demonstrator had their own table with their guests and did their own Make and Takes at  the table. Here is photo of my group hard at work.

This is one of the Make and Takes we did. Many of them wanted to see how the treat cups worked. I thought this was a fun card for young kiddies and it uses lots of different punches.

I used the spiral punch along a thin strip of black card and adhered this to the back of Only Orange card piece. Another thin piece of black was adhered to the bottom. I adhered the Orange card to the Green Galore card base with 2 way glue once it had dried so it was easy to remove. I punched a circle using the 1 3/4″ circle punch through the both layers. Just a Tip: Sometimes it is hard to punch through both, so punch it first on the Orange and then line up the card on the Green base and draw a light circle in pencil. You can then line up the circle punch over the pencil circle and punch that out. I stuck the treat cup onto the green base card and then adhered the Orange over this. I punched out some stars and adhered them to the front. The smaller ones I mounted with dimensionals. I used the greeting from Just Jawing (borrowed from my daughter!!)and stamped this in Basic Black onto Whisper White strip. I used the square punch to create flag notches on the ends. You don’t want your good work destroyed in seconds with the receiver in a hurry to get to the goodies, so I created a little flap to fit on the back.

The little flap measures 9cmx5.5cm and scored at 1.5cm. Place adhesive on the small scored section and adhere this below the punched out circle. Fill the cup with treats and fold up the flap. I adhered this with snail but sticky strip would hold better. At least they might destroy the flap but not the card, HEY!!!
These are such fun to make, so why not give one a go. Of course, as you make these remember to ALWAYS  taste test what goes into your Treat Cups!!! LOL
Enjoy your day 🙂
