Trick or Treat?

Hi loves!  Today I'm sharing an altered project I did for Scraps of Color Design Team.  With Halloween right around the corner, you might need some treats for party or for teacher.  Why not try altering these petite coffee cups and filling them with goodies?  This was a very fun, easy project that you can do with the kiddos too.

I ordered the 4 oz. cups and matching lids from restaurant webstore here.  I gathered some patterened papers, embellishments, scissors and my ATG (you can use a glue stick or any paper adhesive). 

 1st, I took apart one of the cups and used it as my template.  Once I trace and cut the template on the desired patterned paper, I applied adhesive with my ATG and wrapped it around the cup.

Next, I cut paper for a straw from scrap paper, about 1.25" x 4.25 ".  Apply adhesive down one length of the strip, roll it beginning with the opposite side (I rolled mine around a thin paintbrush) and adhere the sticky side.

Then, it's time for the fun part, grab your stash of embellies and decorate the cup and lid.  I kept mine simple with ribbon and Boo labels made with the Cricut.

Fill the cup with treats and you're got a cute and spooky gift!
