Sweet Treat Cups Flowers

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Four Hands Are Better Than Two!
My friend Elizabeth came over this past weekend for 2 hours and it was amazing what we accomplished in the course of those 2 hours!  Four hands are definitely better than two!  We had a few goals.  First, we needed to finish the decorations for my nieces' party (I only had a few left, but it was great having some help) and second, we needed to work on some Valentine treats for one of Elizabeth's children.  We accomplished both goals, plus a bit of much-needed straightening in the craft room - YEAH!!!!
Elizabeth arrived with a picture of this idea - I am not sure what site or blog she got the idea from (if you know who made up this adorable idea, please let me know - I'd love to give them credit).  She came armed with these large P\popsicle sticks that worked perfectly!  We used the Clear Flower die in the Big Shot to cut the designer paper (retired) and the card stock.  We then embossed the Regal Rose card stock using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  We used glue to adhere the flowers together and to adhere the sticks to the back of the flowers.  The sweet treat cups were adhered to the center of the flowers and we added at touch of ribbon and stamped the sticks.  I can see making these for all kinds of occasions!  Here is a close up!  Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!
