Sour Cream Treat Containers!

Happy Thanksgiving SALE at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! Click HERE!

Need a quick treat container?  How about a table place setting surprise?  Write your guests names on the container tags so they can find their own seat at the table!  However you choose to use these nifty paper creations, the recipients will surely know they are special!  I created three samples for you today!  Lets get started!

I chose Kaisercraft's Holly Bright 6 1/2" paper pad for all the sour cream containers.  I trimmed each sheet down to a 5" x 5" square and placed a line of ScorTape along the left paper edge. I lined up the left paper edge to the right paper edge, pressing to secure adhesive, but not creasing the paper. 

I placed the seam line down the middle of the container as shown in the above photo.  Now to secure the ends! Placing ScorTape inside the inner paper edge does the trick.  Be sure to wait until you have added the container's contents before sealing the other end!  Ask me how I know!

Remember the Paper Crimper?  I have not used this tool in ages! I love the texture it gives as well as reinforcing a strong hold on the ScorTape.  Voila' container complete! It's really that simple. HERE is a link to the Splitcoaststampers Sour Cream Container Tutorial.  There are some really cute ones in their gallery link too!  

Now on to container embellishing! Kaisercraft paper pads give coordinating punch out pages and I utilized them for the tags attached to the sour cream containers. A bit of trim, ribbons, sugar dots, and string and there we have it!The acorn container paper is one of the paper pad's speciality sheets, the acorn image is a raised embossed design and is so much prettier than in the photo! Love Kaisercraft's Holly Bright Paper Pad for this type of project.  I had to look no further for special paper and tags!

Wishing you and your loved ones a Blessed Thanksgiving.  Be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's SALE this week!  And Sharon's BLOG for all the store product updates and project ideas!  Happy Thanksgiving!
