Stampin’ Up! May Baskets
Do any of you remember May Day? Did you bring treat baskets to the neighbors’ houses, ring the bell, and run? I’m not sure if anyone even does that anymore! I’ve made these for a class and have a few leftover for our neighbors. I’ll ring the bell, but I probably won’t run!
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Cups available in the Occasions Catalog. You get ten cups for $8.50. These will be retiring, so you’ll want to grab a package a two. They’re very fun to decorate for a variety of occasions. A couple of months ago, I made one for dog treats. See that post here.
I added a handle using a strip of Pineapple Punch card stock measuring 8 1/2 inches by 3/4 inches. I glued that strip to the inside of the cup using Tombow Glue. The Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper worked well for the May Day theme. I used the template provided by Stampin’ Up! I’d love to send one via email, if you’re interested. Then, just fill and deliver!
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy May Day! To see a list of products used, scroll to the bottom of this post. Each photo takes you directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.
Stampin’ Up! Sweet Cups (#1148573)
Stampin’ Up! Sweet Cups have been available in the Occasions Catalog since early January. But until recently, I hadn’t given them a second look. Now, I can’t get enough of them! (They come in a package of 10 for $8.50.)
The Sweet Cups offer a clean slate so you can decorate them anyway you like. See this post for a cute dog treat packet.
I created this container to celebrate a birthday. This would work well at a birthday party filled with any kind of favor, including the chocolate pictured here. (This chocolate is a Nebraska product, Baker’s Chocolate. The different colors signify different flavors.)
The wrap around the bottom comes from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I added a Pearlized Doily (did you know you can get two packages of these free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order?) and a hat stamped from the Birthday Cheer stamp set, colored with select Stampin’ Blends. I added a layer of Wink of Stella to make the hat pop!
Stampin’ Up! has created a sleeve template, making it easy to trace and adhere any Designer Series Paper to the cup. Contact me, and I’ll send you a PDF file to print your own.
