Today I'll show you how to Transform the Stampin'Up! Sweet Cup into an Easter Basket! Take a look!
The sweet cup does most of the work for you--usually trying to construct a round box or basket is a bit tricky--when I looked at the Sweet Cups the first time I thought they would make an amazingly cute Easter basket with minimal work. EAch pack of cups contain 10--great price!
I'll give you the directions below and following that will be the supply list. Click on the Shop Now button or on one of the product images and you'll be in my store to order the supplies you need to create these cuties.
1. You'll need to sacrifice one of the Sweet Cups to get a pattern for the designer paper. Very carefully open up the side seam of one cup and cut out the bottom (you may want to save this in case you need it for a pattern for another project). What is left is the side of the cup--lay this out on the Butterfly Gala designer series paper (I used the tiny butterfly design). Trace the patter onto the DSP with a pencil and cut out with your Paper Snips. Attach this to the base of another Sweet Cup using Tear & Tape (Item #138995).
2. With your Paper Snips cut out the top of one Sweet Cup lid...use the tips of the scissors. Then set the lid rim (what is left after cutting out the top) on top of the decorated cup.
3. Attach approximately 22" Calypso satin ribbon to the rim with Tear & Tape. Tie a bow with the two ribbon ends.
4. Cut 3/4 X 11" thick Very Vanilla cardstock; using 11" Calypso Coral cardstock and the Decorative Ribbon punch--punch the ribbon and adhere it to the vanilla piece with liquid glue. Add liquid glue to about 2" on the good side of this "handle" and stick it inside the cup (let this dry a few minutes before trying to hold the basket by the handle).
Your basket is ready for the sweets! Enjoy!
