Sweet Treat Cup Candy Holder - Challenge 141 LNS

This is one of a variety of candy holders that I have made for my various fall craft shows. 


Stamp: Sweet Centers
Ink: Rich Razellberry
Papers: Whisper White, Basic black
Accessories: Sweet Treat Cups (round), 1 3/4" round punch, hand held hold punch, 1/8" Pumpkin Pie taffeta ribbon, popsicke sticks (non SU), candy

Tutorial:
  1. Using Halloween image stamp from Sweet Centers stamp with Rich Razelberry ink on Whisper White paper.
  2. With a large pair of scissors cut the rectangle out - use long cutting strokes
  3. Punch out the center using the 1 3/4" circle punch - save that.
  4. Apply dotto adhesive around the punched circle (on the wrong side of the image.
  5. Apply permanent adhesive on each of the corners of the rectangle
  6. Insert the treat cut through the punched hole (from the back - closed side first)
  7. Apply slight pressure on the paper around the edges of the treat cut to ensure the adhesive is holding
  8. Put choice of candies into treat cup.
  9. Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock (2 1/2 by 2 3/4")
  10. With a slit punch, make a slit at one of the ends - insert the punch in as far as it will go.  This gives the treat recipient something to grab so they can access the candy.
  11. Apply adhesive to the edges of the black card stock and attach to the wrong side of the stamped image.
  12. Attach a piece of sticky strip to one end of the popsicle stick (about 1 3/4") - where it will be attached to the back of the black card stick.


  1. Remove the red backing of the tape and attach the popsicle stick to the back card stock
  2. With a hand hald punch, punch a small hole just above the spider image of the punched out center circle
  3. Insert some ribbon through the hole (tip:  ribbon will go through the hole easier if it is cut at an angle)
  4. Tie circle to popsicle handle using ribbon. 
  5. Apply glue dot behind ribbon to keep it in place
