This is an experiment. I saw the plastic cup holders for egg dying and the first thing I thought of was, "You could stamp on that plastic!" So I did. I stamped in stazon black and colored the flowers with permanent ink. I added brown adhesive backed ribbon from Joann's around the top and bottom edges. This covered up the colored plastic band that was on the top and bottom of the cup. Lastly I added the bow. Then I placed a battery operated battery that flickers like a candle, into the plastic cup. I thought it looked cute and it was very inexpensive to make. I'm going to try to make something else with these. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks for looking.

Great idea ... these would be great for outside on a deck or patio ---- stamp and decorate ... add sand about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up to weight down and then put the candle in. It wouldn't keep the bugs away, but they would look cool!!!!
