Cute & Sweet Poinsettia Treats

A couple months ago, I received this adorable thank you gift from fellow demonstrator Ronda Wade at one of her events…

Created by Ronda Wade at Stamp With Ronda.

It's created with the Floral Frames Framelits Die and the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle and the Sweet Treat Cup holds 2 yards of Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon. What a fun gift idea for customers and hostesses to get a little sample of product in their hands!

I decided to make my own holiday version, so I came up with this poinsettia flower that I'll be giving out as appreciation gifts.  It uses two layers of the Floral Frames Framelit Die, the larger embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot Texture Impressions Folder and the smaller embossed with the Square Lattice Texture Impressions Folder. 

Inside my Sweet Treat Cup, I added 1 yard of Old Olive Dotted Scallop Ribbon and three matching Bright Buttons.

I embellished my flower with a Whisper White Modern Label Punch stamped with a sentiment from Petite Pairs in Old Olive ink.  It's accented with an Early Espresso Baker's Twine bow and Rhinestone Jewels.

I also tried a version with some leaves that were die-cut from the Autumn Accents Die, then folded and embossed with "veins" from the Woodgrain Texture Impressions Folder.  I added Chocolate Chip Dotted Scallop Ribbon and a Bronze Designer Button in this cup, and changed the twine to Cherry Cobbler.

Which version do you like better?  With or without leaves?  I like the leaves, but I'll probably have to add another layer to the back, or else it will look like this…

That's not very pretty at all! 

Tips On Creating Your Own Poinsettia Sweet Treat

  • Use the second largest Floral Frames Framelits Die for the base, then emboss.
  • Add your "treats" to the cup, peel off paper backing on cup, and adhere to base.

  • For top flower, punch a 1-3/4" Circle in the card stock first, then position the 3rd largest Floral Frames Framelit over the top.  It will just barely fit.  Emboss, then adhere over the Sweet Treat Cup with Dimensionals.

OK—what about the Old Olive version with leaves?  Seriously, I need some help deciding! 

Optional Treats: Don't forget that Sweet Treats are great for just that—sweets!  You don't have to add ribbons and buttons…try some M&M's, Skittles, Swedish Fish and more!

  1. Thanks (to you and to Ronda) for the great inspiration!! Both of your creations are lovely, but I’m partial to the one with leaves, despite what the back looks like. Either way, I’m sure the recipient will hate tearing into the flower to get the goodies. 😛
