Sweet Treat Cup

Mar 23, 2010

Crepe paper and pipe clean­ers… can it get much sweet­er? For me, no.

Here is a treat cup tuto­r­i­al that will fit on an East­er tree if you short­en the han­dle a bit from what is shown here. Or you could score major brown­ie points by plac­ing one of these lit­tle cuties on your co-work­ers desk filled with a few can­dy eggs, a choco­late East­er bun­ny, wrapped in cel­lo­phane and tied with a seam bind­ing bow. You could also make sev­er­al and use them as place­cards for an East­er brunch. Pure sweet­ness I think.

Sup­plies Used: White Nut & Par­ty Cups (can be found in the Cake Sec­tion of large craft stores), Pink Crepe Paper Stream­er, Maya Road Pink Ruf­fle Edge Trim, Jen­ni Bowl­in Pink Embell­ished But­ter­flies, Fab­ri-Tac, Embroi­dery Floss (any light col­or as it will not be seen), Sil­ver Pipe clean­er

Tools Need­ed: Scal­lop Scis­sors, Sewing Nee­dle, Hot Glue Gun


  1. Cut a piece of crepe paper stream­er 12″ in length, fold in half length wise, while still fold­ed trim open edge using scal­lop scis­sors.
  2. Open crepe paper stream­er, thread a sewing nee­dle with 3 strand of embroi­dery floss, start gath­er­ing the crepe paper down the cen­ter (the crease from your fold should be vis­i­ble to use as a guide) once you reach the oppo­site end space gath­ers so that the crepe paper ruf­fle wraps all around the treat cup.
  3. Attach the crepe paper ruf­fle onto the treat cup. Note: Apply adhe­sive along the cen­ter stitched area.
  4. Cut a piece of Pink Ruf­fle Edge Trim long enough to wrap around the cen­ter of the attached crepe paper ruf­fle. Attach the trim to the crepe paper ruf­fle using Fab­ri-Tac.
  5. Attach one Jen­ni Bowl­in Pink Embell­ish­ment But­ter­fly onto the Pink Ruf­fle Edge Trim. Note: The but­ter­fly should look cen­tered on the front of the treat cup.
  6. Using a hot glue gun attach a Sil­ver Pipe Clean­er on the inside of the treat cup to form your han­dle.
  7. Fill with shred­ded book pages and sweet treats.

Here’s to a day of hap­py cre­at­ing!
