12 Days of Christmas Treat Holders-Day 7!

During my "12 Days of Christmas Treat Holders", I wanted one of my treat holders to incorporate the Stampin' Up! Sweet Treat Cups. Today is the day! Welcome to Day 7 and my little "Sweet Treat Snowman":

So cute & easy to fill with a treat and give away with a gift. Here is what you will need to create one of these:

  • Basic Black Cardstock: cut (1) using the Wide Oval Punch and (1) using the Modern Label Punch for the hat. (2) eyes using the Owl Punch
  • Chocolate Chip Cardstock: Cut (2) branches using the Bird Punch
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: Cut (1) branch using the Bird Punch and cut off one leaf only for the nose
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Cut (1) using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch for the head. For the 2nd circle, cut a hole in your cardstock using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and using the hole, center the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and cut. This will be in the shape of a ring. For the 3rd circle, cut (1) using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch
  • Pacific Point 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon for the hat and a scarf
  • Candies
Assembly Steps:
  • Glue the two hat pieces together by layering the Wide Oval Punch shape sideways and gluing the Modern Label Punch shape for the brim of the hat. Trim the bottom of the Wide Oval Punch to even with the brim of the hat. Add Sticky Strip to the hat to glue a piece of ribbon to.
  • Peel the backing off of the back of the treat cup. Fill with candies. Press in place the 2 1/2" Whisper White circle to the treat cup. This should keep the candies secured inside the treat cup.  
  • Apply Multipurpose Glue to the front of the treat cup on the brim. Trim to fit the (2) branches for the arms and glue in place. Using the 2 1/2" circle that looks like a ring, press in place on top of the treat cup front.
  • Glue the head to the body. 
  • Glue the hat to the head.
  • Glue the nose and eyes in place on the snowman's face. Using a White Signo Gel Pen, add eyeballs to the center of the eyes.
  • Wrap a piece of ribbon around the neck and tie into a double-knot to look like a scarf!

  5. Anybody know where I can get the treat cups?

  6. Anybody know where I can get the treat cups?

    1. Kathy, those were Stampin' Up! products that are no longer available. They retired them a few years ago.

  7. How do you get the candy out without damaging the snowman?

    1. You would be peeling the back layer to the treat cup off only. It would not damage the snowman. If you want to re-use, you would have to cut a new circle to put on the back again.


Thanks so much for visiting me today. I appreciate your comments!
