Fun little flower

This cute little flower is made using the Sweet Centers stamp set and cups from the Holiday Mini. To give you an idea of the size, the flower center is 1 3/4" and is filled with M&M Minis. The stem is a craft spoon (like what you ate ice cream with when you were a kid). For the flower, I cut a 2 3/4" circle and punched out the center with the 1 3/4" circle punch. I adhered the cup to it using mini glue dots. I stamped 8 flower petals in Crushed Curry and cut them out. I adhered them at north, south, east and west and then filled in with the remaining 4. For the back, I cut out a whisper white 2 3/4" circle and made a big X on it with the perforating blade from the cutter kit so it would be easy to get the candy out. I filled the cup with candy and then adhered the white circle to the back. I colored the craft spoon with Certainly Celery craft ink and the "leaves" are Mistletoe Ribbon Originals, also from the Holiday Mini. I adhered the spoon to the back of the flower using Mono Multi liquid glue.
Happy stamping!
