Easter Egg Teacup Treat Holder

After a long hiatus from the blog, I’m back with a new post! On this week’s livestream, I shared this Easter Egg Teacup Treat Holder! It features the Excellent Egg Bundle paired with the perfect pastels of the Lighter Than Air Designer Series Paper.

I had so much fun designing this! I had an idea in mind and, once I started, I couldn’t stop! I intended to add a basket handle, but realized it would make it difficult to add the treat, so I turned it into a teacup handle instead and I’m loving it!

I added the “Happy Easter” sentiment to the handle. Depending on whether you are right-handed or left-handed, you can add the teacup handle to either side!

This treat holder is just a simple box “sandwiched” between two egg diecuts, so the design can be adapted with different shapes, like hearts, circles, etc.! A “Snack Size” Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg fits perfectly inside as well as many other treats that I shared during the livestream.

Here’s the replay of the livestream:

And here’s the template for reference (also included in the project sheet):

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!

    Thanks for sharing this adorable Easter box/tea cup. Soooo cute! Now I have to add that bundle to my list!

  9. Hi Julie,
    Thanks for the blog post
    Cute project I will be making this for my mother-in-law’s group that she lives with
    I make treat holders for them for the holidays and I have learned that the candy needs to be visible otherwise they can not figure out how to get to the candy. She lives in a full care facility. This treat holder is perfect for them thank you!!

  10. So happy to see your newest blog post Julie! Great timing too…giving enough time to gather materials for making Easter treat boxes. I so look forward to your weekly and patron LIVES! I realize how much time and effort you put into each project and hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated. Love also that Bryan, Lillie, Nolan and Bubba G are there to support you. Blessed and so happy you are my demonstrator!

  11. I love the Easter egg cup! Very clever indeed. Thinking this would be a cute pumpkin cup I have one sitting in my cupboard. You don’t disappoint your projects are inspiring! Enjoyed your blog, welcome back and thank you!

    • Hi Cindy! Thank you so much! All is well! I haven’t gone anywhere – I just haven’t been publishing blog posts. I’m live on YouTube every single week with new projects, so be sure to check my channel out for any projects you have missed! There are over 50 projects on YouTube that haven’t made it to my blog yet.

  12. Watched the livestream! Loved the project!! Ordered the dies the very next day!! Can’t wait to make them! Thank you for your creativity, enthusiasm and sharing!!

  13. It’s adorable. I know how to make an origami teacup using the envelope punch board but you can make it using any 1/2 inch circular punch. I think everyone would love it with Easter and Mother’s Day coming up it is perfect for putting some treats in.

    • All is good, Dawn! Thank you! I haven’t gone anywhere – I just haven’t been publishing blog posts . I’m live every single week on YouTube, so there are a lot of projects that haven’t made it to the blog since last April.

  14. I thought this was so cute that I ordered the set. Already love the flight and airy paper. Making these for everyone for my Easter dinner table. Who doesn’t love a peanut butter egg right? Thanks Julie.
    Fellow demonstrator, pixie patron and huge fan, Joanne

  15. I’m a demonstrator in Houston who has met you at various conventions. I have missed your blogs and are hoping all is well with you.

  16. Loved the egg teacup. I watch your videos a whole lot and have made many of them . Thank you for sharing and sending this as I have been unable to print off directions until you sent this one.
    Q. What size clear thin velcro dots do you usually use on projects?
    Thanks again,Sandra.

    • Julie,
      I just love your videos, and I love your techniques and the way you present the information. If I didn’t already have an up line person, you would definitely be my next pick. I watch your videos more than anyone. One quick question… Could you tell me where you bought the gold coins that you used in your double compartment treat box that you created a couple of weeks ago? Could you also tell me the size? Thanks so very much and have a great weekend.

  17. adorable, this set was not on my radar. I guess i will be re-thinking it now. Also may I ask now b/c I had to watch the replay due to my WIFI was out. What do you use to hold your 8X 11 1/2 cardstock. Thank you

  18. Hi Julie thank you for your email. What a cute Easter project! I’m looking forward ti making some for my family and friends.
    Much love,
    Cindy Sitz. Manistee MI
