I know I'm not the only one who looks at *anything* red and imagines how it can be turned into a super adorable Mickey Mouse inspired creation. Please, tell me that I'm not the only one.... Anyhow, I can not believe that I didn't think of this idea sooner.....Red Solo cups as Mickey's pants!! So inexpensive and really easy to do! Can be used as party cups or as the base of a treat bag.
While cruising the aisles of the Dollar Tree last month, I came across these little plastic storage bins. At the time, I did not know what I would do with them. My inner Dollar Tree voice said... "at 4 for a dollar, buy them now and figure it out later..." So I bought 6 packs of 4. I'm so glad that I did!

I am almost embarrassed to actually type out instructions for this... Using a 1" circle paper punch, punch out two white circles out of card stock. Using a low temp hot glue gun, glue the buttons onto the cup. Done. Seriously, how easy is that!!
I found black striped paper straws at Michaels for $2. I punched out Mickey heads using my Mickey paper punch and black card stock. I used a tiny drop of hot glue to glue the Mickey Heads about an inch down the straw.
|Finished product, how cute?!|
Onto the base of the treat bag: Just like the cups, hot glue the 1" circles to the front of the container. Fill with candy and tie with a yellow ribbon. I added a Mickey head punch-out to the bow.

I made these Mickey inspired cupcakes using half of an Oreo and two mini Oreos as the ears. Red icing and two white chocolate chips as the buttons. So simple.
