Treat Cup Slider Card



This is a fun card that I shared at the Close to my Heart Convention last summer. It uses our treat cups to hold yummy little treats or small little gifts. What I love about this card is that it was soooo easy to make! I used two of the images on CTMH’s Artiste Cricut cartridge which made it even faster, simpler, and easier to create! I brought the images into Cricut Craft Room to add the small circle on the back and the larger circle on the front. The base of the card was cut at 5" (see page 69 of the Artiste booklet.) The large tag was cut at 3". (I provided a link to the .ccr file for you at the bottom of this post.)


The great thing is that when you lift up the tag from the inside of the card it exposes a small hole in the back so you can get the treats out without having to tear up the card. The recipent can even reuse the card if they wanted to.

I used the Simple Memories and Card Chatter — Love stamp sets that will be retiring at the end of January, so if you like them, make sure to order your sets now before they disappear. I also used the Magic Potions set which will be available through the next catalog cycle.


If you would like to download the Cricut Craft Room file that I created, you are welcome to do so by clicking here. (Note, you must have the Artiste Cricut cartridge for this file to work.)

Stay tuned for a video on how to make this fun little treat cup card...
