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.

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.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
