Double Flower Sweet Treat!

Today I'm posting one of the projects we did at the retreat last weekend:  a double flower sweet treat!  This was one of the quick and easy projects but nevertheless fun and attractive!  With the tag, it makes a great favor from our Stamp Retreat!

Two flowers were diecut with the #115970 Flower Folds Bigz XL Die.  This die cuts four sizes of the same shape flower and if perfect for so many projects including layered petals, fabric flowers for pins and such and so many more ideas!

The flowers were then embossed with the Finial Press Embossing Folder to give them that beautiful texture!  A #116802 Circle Treat Cup was filled with pastel Skittles candy (Easter colors!); if you do this, be sure you don't fill your cups over the depth of the cup as it will pop off!  (Ask me how I know!  lol!)  We then adhered this to a Wild Wasabi 1-3/4" Scallop Circle and attached this to the flowers with two strips of Sticky Strip adhesvie.  

Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon was tied around the cup (use a little Snail adhesive on the ribbon or it will fall off and be impossible to tie!  lol!).

The tag was done by Connie using My Digital Studio and was punched with the Decorative Label Punch.  The small flowers of Daffodil, Wisteria and Tangerine were punched with the scallop flower punch from the #118309 Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, adhered with Snail and embellished with sparkly #119246 Basic Rhinestones.

Wouldn't this be delightful as favors for a ladies luncheon or spring gathering, or used as favors for a party? I'm sure you can think of many more uses too!  (It actually looks a good bit like a hat, so that's a whole different avenue to explore too!  hm-m-m!  wheels turning....)

Thanks for visiting today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
