C4C: Harlequin Candy Cups!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  It is time for another challenge with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C158).   Jessie is the hostess for October.     This week she challenges us make a Sweet Treat!  Showcase a sweet treat either printed on paper, word stamped, or an actual sweet treat container.  

For my sweet treat container I chose to use my PTI harlequin coverplate die.  I just love diamond shapes.  I cut out the die and used without any of the diamonds.  Just the framed portion.  I used some scor-tape to attach the ends together.  I added some red/white twine to cinch the middle to create an hour glass shape perfect for a balanced bottom and deep enough at the top to hold a clear cup of sweets.  Here I chose to add some Chex Muddy Buddies....but I am sure M & Ms, Candy Corn or sweet of choice could fit.  I really like that it is a great size to walk around with at a party and holds just enough for an individual serving.  Super quick to make, too.  I finished with a little Party Time ticket tag made with Just the Ticket stamp set.  Sweet!

Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!
