Green Halloween Treat Card


I am so excited about this project that I could not wait to show it to you. This card, though probably not my cutest, is made from a Del Monte fruit cup. I am even more excited because 1.) it did not cost me the $2.95 that Stampin Up! wants for it's sweet treat cups and 2.) I am recycling something that I would have put in the trash.

I started out by tracing around the cup to make a paper template. Then I got out my coluzzle and measured with my temple what size the very outside of the cup was. Then I moved in one line and cut our my circle. I used the fourth circle in on my coluzzle. Then I stamped the card with a stamp from Stampin UP!'s Baroque Motifs stamp set in old olive. I used a cuttlebug die-cut to make the stem of the pumpkin. The cup fits just perfectly in the hole so I did not need to glue it in but I did glue a piece of vellum over the top of the cup so my candy corn would not fall out.

I hope you like this project and that inspires you to use those empty fruit cups.
