A Sweet Treat Alternative with Light The Candles Kit

Recently I shared one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! kits, Light the Candles. Today I have an alternative idea you can make using the contents from the kit.
Stampin' Up! Light the Candles Kit alternative idea for a mug cake mix-Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This sweet treat would be great for a coworkers birthday, teacher, hairdresser, or anyone you just want to give a little something for their birthday. I love how the cake in the kit is perfect for gifting the mug cake mix. And if you want to step it up even more, you can give a mug with it!

To make the holder for the mug cake mix, I sealed an envelope then used my paper trimmer to cut off 1/8″ along one side.  This side becomes the top of the holder. Next, punch a hole to thread the ribbon through, add your pouch mix, and tie a bow at the top with some twine. You just pull the ribbon up to reveal what’s inside.  (I have made these in the past using DSP to wrap candy bars.)

I used the contents from the kit to decorate the front of the envelope. I cut a card base in 1/2 to create a mini card to insert with the mug cake. The sentiment is from a retired set, Party with Cake, and is perfect for this gift. This is an easy treat to make and I’m sure the recipient will love it!.

I am excited that tomorrow Demonstrators can preorder the new In Colors as well as the new and returning colors and select stamps, etc. I’ve been working on my wish list and it is a long one! I can’t wait to share these new colors and products with you!
