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.

Happy Tails Treat Cups
I had a really fun in-home class this week featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Happy Tails Bundle—the stamp set and coordinating Dog Builder Punch. For each class, I love to give everyone a welcome treat. Most often, it includes chocolate. But dogs can’t have chocolate, so I prepared a treat for all of our four-legged friends out there.
This project uses Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Cups. There are 10 undecorated cups in each package for $8.50. That’s a great bargain. You can then decorate them any way you like. To help you add Designer Series Paper to the bottom of the cup, Stampin’ Up! released a PDF template. Contact me, and I’ll send you one via email.
I printed the template (recommended at 100 percent), trimmed out the pattern, placed the pattern over my Designer Series Paper, and then hand cut. I rolled the piece around the cup and adhered with Stampin’ Up!’s Tear and Tape.
For this cup, I used the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, available free as a Sale-A-Bration item with a $50 purchase (before tax and shipping). At first look, you might think this paper features only butterflies, but the flip side offers some great basic, black-and-white designs.
For a look at all of the products I used in today’s treat for your pup, look at the thumbnail graphics below. Click on any of them to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.
The Happy Tails Bundle is offered at a 10 percent discount (for $31.50) when you purchase it as a bundle.
Please let me know if you have questions. I’m happy to help!
