Sweet Treat Thursday -- Batty for Treat Cups!

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!

Hi everyone,

It's Hallowe'en time here at Card à la Carte and my favorite candy is Candy Corn. So I got out my Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Treat Cups and well... went to bat with them! LOL

This card uses a lot of punches -- here's a list:

  • 5-petal flower
  • 3" circle
  • wide oval
  • small oval
  • round tab label
  • 1 3/4" circle
  • 1/4" circle
  • 1/8" circle
I started by cutting a rectangle out of Basic Black CS and then traced the outline of the bat's body. Then I used the punches to form the 2 wings and completed it adding the head (round tab label), ears and eyes.

Here's a view of the trap door from the inside of the card where you can refill the candies. If you have any questions about this project, don't be shy and leave it in the comments. I'll be happy to answer them!
Have a nice stampin' day!
