Jelly Beans in a Cup!

As I was cleaning up this HUGE overwhelming mess I have in our tv room I ran a cross these containers I had purchased empty from Stampin' Up! It was nice to just take the containers out of the package and be able to use them right away as opposed to using up the "stuff" in a container and peeling off the label. And it's such a great time saver too!

I filled these containers with gourmet jelly beans and then over to my stash of decorative papers to find some I could use that would look wonderful on top of these containers. I used the "Shades of Spring" designer paper and the "Flower Daisies #2" die cut. I cut out two flowers to make the one flower you see on the container. I stuck them together with mini glue dots and the same with the buttons. I used two glue dots stacked on top of each other. I had to do that because one wasn't thick enough to touch the plastic lid because of the thickness of the papers. Now if I didn't have the glue dots on hand I would have used Crystal Effects to stick all of these together.

Aren't they adorable? I made a dozen of them all together and they really didn't take that long to make. I haven't played with that die as much as I'd like to. I do have some ideas to do with it and can hardly wait to find some time to see those ideas in real life!

These make great gifts for the kiddies, teachers, friends, neighbors, etc. And they are easy to make too! You can get the kiddies to help make them, if they promise not to eat the jelly beans until you are all done!! Good luck on that one!

Thank you SO much for visiting,
