Cute spinner/treat cup combo

At leadership in Nashville, I watched a demonstration on combining the new spinners with the treat cups to make this adorable card. I am posting the photos for my crafty friends who want to try it. The cardstock is 3 x 6, scored and folded in half and embossed. The punched circles are 2 1/4" and 3/4". The insert is made from the white panel that comes behind our packs of dsp. It measures 1 5/8" x 1/2". A slit is cut in the center of each at 13/16". The tab at the top slides inside the folded card to keep the candies in until you are ready to eat them. It is made from a 2 1/2" circle punch and the round tab punch. The card is held together at the top with brads. To make the spinner spin well, slide your fingernails under the head of the brad to keep it from being flush with the paper. Next bend down the prongs. This will allow a little space between the spinner head and the treat cup and will make your spinner spin freely.
