Treat Cup Idea

'Outta This World' treat cup card

I absolutely adore these fun & interactive treat cups; they can be incorporated into crafts in so many ways.
My son has one of his friend's birthday parties today, so had a think about what sort of card I could make for him. And this is what I came up with....
Inside the treat cup is sprinkles, two different sorts; just ones I already had from the local supermarket.
The stamp set used here is the Outta This World one, and the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from Holiday Tags .

The instructions:
1. Cut white cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Score at 4 1/4 and fold to form card base.
2. Stamp the spaceship on scrap white cardstock in Pacifica ink . Cut out the middle of spaceship with scissors as shown.
3. Cut Lagoon cardstock 5 1/4" x 6 1/2". Score all 4 sides at 1/4", then at 1/2" in from the 1/4" score lines.
4. Fold the inner score lines in towards themselves, and the outer score lines upwards.
5. With a circle cutting tool (not a punch, as you want to keep the cardstock intact) cut a circle in the Lagoon cardstock. To do this I used the circle Cutting Custom System from Creative Memories.
6. Fill the treat cups with sprinkles or whatever you want to put in them (don't fill completely)
7. Peel the paper off from the adhesive that's around the cup. Stick a scrap piece of cardstock on top of the cup, and press slightly to adhere to the adhesive. Trim around it.
8. Adhere the outer scored edges (except one) of the Lagoon cardstock to the card base using strong adhesive. I used Mini Glue Dots here, which worked perfectly.
9. adhere Glue Dots to the back of the treat cup, and position treat cup in place. Adhere the fourth score line of Lagoon to card base.
10. Adhere the spaceship as shown.
11. Stamp the rocket in Cranberry ink onto scrap white cardstock, trim around & adhere to card base.
12. Stamp the sentiment 'Greetings Earthlings' in Pacifica ink on white cardstock, the 'Happy Birthday' onto Pacifica cardstock in Cranberry ink,  trim & adhere.
13. Stamp the star from the 'Outta This World' stamp set in Pacifica ink on the inside of the card.

**Recommendations:- I suggest make the width of the 1/4" score lines 1/2" instead, that way it has greater surface area to stick to.
