My Little Candy Cups

I decorated these cups to hold candy at a party I recently had. They turned out really cute. I saw the idea at convention last year. I tried to get a picture with candy in them, but all the candy got eaten before I remembered to take a picture-HA!

To make them, I took a paper cup apart, flattened it out, and used it for a template. I traced it on some patterned paper, cut it out and used red sticky tape to adhere it onto a papercup. I then used my coluzzle to cut a circle as big as the opening of the cup. Then I took my 1 1/4" circle punch and made a scalloped edge all around the outside of the cut out circle. I also used my 1/4" circle punch to make smaller scallops. After I got the scalloped edge all punched out, I slid it up from the bottom of the cup to the top. I then used my exacto knife and cut a small slit in the cup and inserted a paper leaf to finish it off.


I think these would be so cute for a little girls birthday party. Now if I only had a little girl......
