Heart Treat Cups

When Stampin' Up! announced the heart shaped treat cups, I knew I wanted some. But, I didn't purchase the coordinating stamp set that goes with them. Well, what then to do with these treat cups? This is what I came up with. I wanted to put the treat cup on the top of the card and not punch the hole to put it between 2 layers. In order to cover-up the edge of the treat cup, I made some "lace trim".

Here's how:
Take a 12" x 3/4" piece of designer series paper. Punch along one edge using a border edge punch (I used the new Pinking Hearts Border punch), then run it through the crimper. The crimping gives the "lace" the ability to more easily go around the curves of the heart. Then, I used Mini Glue dots to adhere the "lace" around the outside edge of the treat cup. Voila!

The inside of the treat cup has punched hearts inside, but you could just as easily add candy or any other small gift.
