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 ......
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.
