GiftCups3_150x107.jpgTake lid, put sheet of paper on top and trace inner circle, trace this onto cardboard and you have a pattern to cut out circles from Christmas paper, do this while your cups are drying. Use brush to apply glue to inside circle on top and put your cut Christmas circle on it.

When cups are dry, you can use the foam stick on snowflakes to decorate!

Fill with treats and give with a smile!

Wow I love this idea! Thank you so much for posting! I just bought Holiday containers at the dollar store but I need more. Instead of buying them I will make these :) I might even do this for birthdays and valentines day too using different decorations.
