Frosty Treat Cup

My daughter and I spent an evening recently making a bundle of cards like this for teacher gifts.  We found the idea on-line and were inspired to use leftover treat cups we had here.  The ultimate goal is to print the Snowman Soup poem for the inside and include a packet of Hot Cocoa Mix and a little candy cane stirrer on the inside.  I gotta tell ya, it took a LONG time just to get the front done on four of these.  First we put together the snowman body, complete with his hat with sparkly band, face, black brads for buttons and his gingham scarf. 

Then adding the treat cup and making sure the holes lined up through three layers. We did that by first punching the 1 3/4" circle in the top layer (Baja Breeze) then lining it up on the Real Red layer and tracing it with a pencil.  Once that one is punched we then line up the inside layer and once again trace the circle.  I know that is clear as mud.  Without a tutorial it really takes some thought! 

Once I get the inside done I'll take some more pics and maybe attempt a tutorial... don't hold your breath though.  This is a busy holiday season coming up! 

Thanks for visiting!
