Sweet Vintage Candy Cups ~

It's that time of year again...time for some Sweet Vintage Candy Cups
...and a giveaway!

This year I'm mixing it up a bit and making it a Swap
You may remember last years ~ here

I love this sweet woodland one, with everything just getting ready to bloom
I've been playing around with Martha's flocking ~ have you discovered it too?

This sweet frilly candy cup will be given away to a lucky winner!
Ahh, butterflies & tiny blooms ~ bring them on!

I twirled ribbon around a silver pipe cleaner for the handle ~ love how the little bits poke out, very fun!

So here's the details if you'd like to join~
1. Leave a comment here by March12th (make sure there is a way I can contact you)
2. Make a Candy Cup using any materials you wish
3. Send me a photo by March 21st
4. I will e-mail you your swap person by March 21st
5. Mail to your Swap Person by March 26th, so it will arrive in time for Easter
6. All Swappers will be entered into the Giveaway!

Please only join if you can send your creation out in time!

Can't wait to see what you create ~ and best wishes!

P.S. If you'd like, add your creation to the flickr pool ~ Sweet Candy Cups

I clicked on the photograph to enlarge your pretty candy cup- so beautiful. The ribbon looks amazing wrapped around the silver pipe cleaner- great idea.

Ohhh - count me in too ! I love swaps and this little Easter one is precious. Are there 'theme' rules ? or anything Easter related is fair game ?

I would love to join the party! I am participating in the Rhae's Easter basket swap- is it ok to use the yogurt cups for this or would that be too big?

I would love to join the party!! I am participating in Rhae's Easter basket swap also- is it ok to use the same base (yogurt cups) or is this too big?

Valarie said...

Hi Heidi,

I'm collecting the material/supply lists for the Art Opera instructors so they can be posted on the yahoo group. I couldnt find your email. Can you please email me your supply lists? Thanks so much!!!

The Little Bluebird Diaries said...

Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my blog. So very excited about your swap! Please sign me up!


Birds of a Feather said...

Hello all ~

Several people asked about using yogurt cups, and that's fine, but maybe cut it down a little - candy cups are not quite as tall - the nut/candy cup base I used is 1.5" H x 2.5" W

Hope you're having fun with this! I'll be closing this swap tomorrow. Please e-mail me you photo by the 21st, thanks!

xo Heidi
