Mini Cup Treat Holder

I originally posted this little cup last Christmas but it’s so cute, I had to repeat it!  🙂

I love things in small packages and this mini cup made me smile when I saw it. I wish I had created this cute little cup, but I didn’t. I saw two tutorials on pinterest. So credit for this project goes to a UK demonstrator, Heidi Smith at flutterbyheidi and Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis.

So you can check out their tutorials and mine to get all the scoop!


You will need a piece of Designer Series Paper (I used my fav, Candy Cane Lane) that is 5 3/4″ x 3 1/4″. And score the long side at 7/8″, 1 3/4″, 2 5/8″, 3 1/2″, 4 3/8″, and 5 1/4″. Score the short side at 1″ and 2 1/4″.

Then trim the tab as shown and cut up to the score line on what will be the bottom of the cup.

Next, fold over the top rim of the cup and here with snail.

Now start folding the cup closed.

Put a glue dot on the tab and insert into the other side of the cup.
Turn the cup over and flare out the flaps. Put a glue dot on every other tab.
Then glue opposite ends together as shown until the bottom of the cup is completed.

To add stability to the cup, cut out scalloped circle (1 3/4″) and adhere one to the inside of the cup and one on the bottom.

For the handle, cut a strip of paper that is 1/2″ x 3″. Use your fingers to curl it slightly.
Adhere with glue dots.
And it’s done!

I’m filling mine with hershey kisses! Merry Christmas!
