Sour Cream containers



This is such a pretty color combination at Pals Paper Arts and as luck will have it at Crazy for CAS  and with Valentine's day coming closer I thought I'll make some Valentines ......


PPA190 Feb 6





I just discovered how to make Sour Cream containers (you can watch THIS youtube video on how to) and thought they are just too cute. Had to try this.




But if you want a quick tutorial how to make those I took some pictures for you:



You start out with a 4 x 6" piece of paper - should not be too thick and add adhesive on one short and one long side - of course you can make this as big as you want...


Form a roll and stick the short sides together


Press down on the adhesive - you can use your paper crimper for additional stability


It looks pretty, too, but is not necessary.


Then you fill it with goodies and crimp the open end, perpendicular to the other end. The crimping will actually hold the paper together without any adhesive. Punch in a tiny hole and stick a brad through and you are done.


Any additional adornments are up to you!
I used a little heart shaped brad, some tags stamped with $ stamps from Michaels and some left over hearts I had saved from THIS card threaded on a silver thread.

I am also submitting this for the Time-out challenge - Love and/or Friendship

Diese Päckchen sehen so ähnlich aus wie die Glückskekse, die man in China-Restaurants bekommt.
Sooo einfach und doch soooo wirkungsvoll.

Danke für den Tipp.LG

Wow, these are really beautiful Cornelia - and so clever too. If you used any snippets (the hearts?) we'd love to see them in the Playground. The girlies would LOVE to see them I'm sure, especially as you showed how to do it.

Hugs, Di xx

Die sind einfach zu schön! Tolles Papier hast du dafür verwendet und die Schildchen und Herzerln sind die perfekte Abrundung!!

Ich wünsch dir einen schönen Sonntag, mit hoffentlich nicht zuviel Schneeschaufeln...
