Transform the Stampin'Up! Sweet Cup into an Easter Basket

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! Easter basket sweetie cup

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.

Directions:

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). Easter basket - handle

Your basket is ready for the sweets! Enjoy!

That's right, I just cut one into two and I can make two super gifts--love the easy wrapping as well as the inexpensive but awesome acetate box holder! Cocoa holder

Fastest Gift Tag using Stampin'Up! Snowfall Thinlets

Today we're going to create a gorgeous gift box with the Fastest Gift Tag using Stampin'Up! Snowfall Thinlets!

 I just purchased a cute scarf as a gift and wanted to create a classy package for it...so I started with a Baker's Box (they are white so a great canvas to start the project), added some Poppy Parade ribbon and....wait for it....the fastest most sparkling gift tag ever....here it is: Bakers gift box

The Baker's Boxes come in packs of 8 white boxes (food safe too!) with the clear window on top...so sponging with your favorite ink is quick and easy (I used Granny Apple Green). I used one of the snowflake stamps in the Snow is Glistening stamp set to give some interest. Note: since the box surface is a bit slick and shiny...take care when stamping not to let the stamp move on the box surface. Stamp straight down and lift straight up for best results.

Baker's box stamped side

Tied the box with the Poppy Parade Textured Weave ribbon and then used the medium size snowflake thinlet  (Snowfall Thinlets) to create the base tag.

I added a banner stamped with "For You" (Snow is Glistening stamp set) in Garden Green ink--popped it up with dimensionals and looped it onto 12" Garden Green Baker's Twine (tied this around the Poppy bow). Gift tag

The stamps and thinlets are part of the Stampin'Up! November Only products--these products are only available through November 30th--or as long as supplies last! And they are selling quickly! My advice....order soon.

    *Snow is Glistening stamp set
    *Happiness Surrounds stamp set

    *White Velvet paper
