Sunburst Flower Treats

The first name that popped in my dad's head when I asked his thoughts about this project, he immediately suggested that they look like "sunburst flowers" to him. Thus, gave birth to the name of these treats. hihi.

Aren't these sooo cute. I used the SU! Treat Cups #116802 on both sides sealing them back to back. Then cover these cups with 2 XL Flower Folds BigShot die #115970 on both sides. Don't forget to adhere the flowers together on its petals.

You must be wondering how I cut a hole in the center of the flower to fit the cups. Easy! First, take a template of your 1-3/4" circle Punch #119850 and tape it on the center of each flower before adhering 2 flower folds together.
Cut through one corner between petals then cut-trace your circle. You have your hole.

Don't worry that your flower folds have opening cuts because they'd be covered with another piece of circle ring which you can make by using your 1-3/4" Circle punch #119850 then your 2-1/2" Circle punch #120906, in that order. You can emboss or stamp the ring before adhering them onto the outer center of the treat cups.

I added a 1/4" grosgrain ribbon as a handle and tied a tag with an elastic silver string #109866.
