Default Sweet Treat cups?

I've seen these adorable dimensional cups for cards, that hold m&m's etc. I have never seen them in stores. Any idea where they come from?

Thanks, I should have known that! My mission is to try and find something recyclable that will be similar. Anyone out there already using something else?

Default sweet treat cup

RE: using something recycled. I've considered using the clear plastic cover from the small size red Terrifically Tacky Tape; you'd have to trim around the "cup" part. I havent used it yet.

I think its a bit bigger than the sweet treat cup and will hardly fit on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 size card, but I guess it could be put on a bigger card. And of course, it would hold more treats. I've attached (hopefully) two pix of the plastic cover.

I would also like to know if there's an "alternative" to the SU! brand of these cups.
I've been keeping my eyes peeled in my kitchen and grocery stores to see if there's something I can recycle for them.

Is anyone else out there doing the same thing?

I've been looking too. I haven't found anything yet. I have even searched online for souffle cups and just haven't found anything that I thought would work.

Anyone else have any ideas on what to even search for?

This idea is not recycled but it's cheaper than the SU cups. I used the wilton candy molds. Choose whatever design that works for you. I got the animal faces and they had a 2 inch diameter. A lady on the cricut website came up with the idea. I don't have pics and can't find hers. I looked because I wanted to give her credit but it got buried. Same day everyone was talking about the gypsy, no wonder,lol.

I looked up the Wilton cups on the Joanns website. They're regularly $1.99 for 8 "cups" - use a coupon and they're that much cheaper.

Not sure how much the SU! cups are but it's a good alternative for people who are anti-SU (like me). (No flaming, please! It's just my personal opinion and choice.)

I too was looking for a "recycling" type item to use. I have discovered the drink mix cups that you find in the Crystal Light drink mix cannisters. They seem to be about the same size as the sweet treat cups. I plan to try this soon. Has anyone tried them before?

I have a TON of these! (Bought a whole mess during a B1G1 Free @ our local grocer and haven't used any. To my remembering, though, these are not completely clear?

I'll have to try it out!
Good tip!

I would be concerned about using recycled cups for anything edible. Plastic is terrible for picking up flavors. Love the idea cookie/chocolate molds.

I've reused plenty of plastic containers that once contained food for various storage and altering. If the smell / flavor is too strong, I soak it in a bowl of one part vinegar, one part hot water and that usually kills any odors.

These are cute, but definitely more expensive - at 10 for $5.15


The candy molds and the SU containers are the same price per cup based on the price listed above.

Not only are they expensive but they're only 1/8 inch deep which would be fine to make shaker cards but not deep enough to put candy.

I like that they are different shapes also, an oval, a square, etc.

Default cups

I have been looking at disposable condiment cups and I think if I can find a shallow enough one, that would work really well. Just an idea.

How about the clam shell boxes for creams. I bought some by mistake and used them for shaker cards. The cost is 10 for $2.50. They don't hold alot but neither do the SU treat cups.

Wow - the picture is big - sorry about that

I'm loving the idea of sweet treat cup substitutes. But when you start going different sizes and shapes, aren't you going to loose the convenience of the hole punch? I mean, when you have different size and shapes, you can't just use the circle hole punch.

How are you cutting the opening for the cup to show through? Some of them would be easy enough, just measure; but when you can't do that, what do you do?

I just created a circle template and used my Fiskars finger swival exacto knive. Worked prefect for me!

I can use my Cricut if it's at the whole or half size. Otherwise, I would do like others and simply cut it out by hand with an exacto.

Some of you ladies must have some serious patience~LOL I'm all about the ease of punches. If a punch isn't available in the size I need, I no longer need that size Punches all the way.....

I prefer the ease of punches, but sometimes the cost or look will outweigh convenience. But then again, if it's to intricate, my patience goes bye-bye and I'll look for a another solution. I'm not going to spend a ton of time on something that will be ripped apart to get to the candy. Heck, when it comes to candy, I could just as easily put the candy in a plain old baggie and my chocoholic friends would be happy as a clam!

Have add - when I did a project with my stamp club, they loved the look of the treat cups but wanted to know "is that all the candy we get?" Relief abounded when I broought the big ol' bag of skittles....

I couldn't stand this thought either, so I tried something different. The pull tab was an idea from Mike over at Stampin-Style (http://stampin-style.typepad.com/stampin-style/). I thought the pull tab made more sense on the inside though, so the cup is (hopefully) upside down and actually holding the candy when they open it up! Using the 1 3/4" punch made this one easy. I had to cut one layer at a time, but all I had to do was get all the layers lined up right and I knew that all the circles would be exactly the right size!

Funny how you mentioned this...I use mine for my mineral spirits, when I am done...I just pour it right back into the bottle and no mess!

I had several Bo Bunny button clamshell packages that I used as Sweet teat cups this year for Halloween. They are round, but bigger in radius and flatter than the SU cups. I am all about reusing my clamshells for this purpose and for shaker cards. Luckily Archivers had several styles on clearance and I happen to have needed buttons. I do like the Wilton idea also, going to look for Christmas and birthday ones.

UGH! I ordered five packages of Sweet Treats only to find out that I need the 1 3/4 punch and I thought it used the 1 3/8 punch that I already own.........
I'm so frustrated.

Hey, jailbird, would it be too much trouble to make your own holes, kinda like referred to above? You'd only need to make the template 1 time and then cut it out; tweak it as necessary around the cup. It'd be more work, but it could be done. Another thought is the 1 3/4" scallop punch; do you have that one? That's a possiblity too, especially if you're attaching the paper to the bottom and not the top of the phlange. I don't know if it'd work; just typing while I think...

For me, it's about the convenience, especially with that many cups, but it's possible to work around it. JAT

Oh thank you so much! frustration set in, and I didn't even look at all my punches - the scallop one does work and it's kind of cute with some paper from each scallop framing the sweet treats cup!

this is just a thought (and i know all of these posts were like 2 years ago but in case anyone else is still on this site)...i went to braum's the other day and they had these cups that you put ketchup in...why wouldn't that work? or better yet, what about the little craft zip lock baggies? just some random thoughts but i bought some jelly bellies and they fit perfect in the braum's cups...i went to braum's to try and buy some but that particular one wouldn't let me...but i'll keep my eyes open for more options...
