Decorated Treat Container

I took dinner to a friend last week.  Her husband is having some health challenges so the meal was healthy, but I also wanted to take them a little treat.  I bought these Diamond Daily Mini Cups from WalMart last Fall and thought these would be the perfect size for a few M&Ms.  I used the Starburst Sayings stamp set and the Starburst Framelits to decorate the lids.
