Rice Bowl Fancy Favor

I have been thinking about this project for a couple days and it finally came together. ANOTHER use for Sweet Treat Cups!!!! Uncooked rice is used instead of candy. Rice is a staple food in the Asian culture (and many other cultures). It is important especially for the Chinese New Year because it is always a wish to have plenty of food and a rice bowl that is full. I didn't think I should put cooked rice in the cup..........hmmmm......maybe I should see if that works. Recognize the box?: it is the SU Exclusive Fancy Favor Box. The handle: it is also cut from the Fancy Favor Box (so it all matches!!!)

Here's a closer view of the little girl:
Her sleeves and flowers in her hair are sponged using a dauber on Pixie Pink ink. The cheeks are also by using a dauber - no re-inking necessary to create those rosy cheeks. Don't forget to put that bling from the Eggcellant Eggs Kit for the flower center.

Isn't she cute?
