Repeat Impressions Project of the Week~Sour Cream Container

Hello I am happy to be bringing you this weeks Project of the Week.  With Christmas in just two days I thought it would be fun to share with you a super quick little treat holder. It is called a sour cream container. These are really easy and fast to make, in fact one year I made one for everyone in my family and hung them on the tree.  I love they way they looked on the tree.  
And a side view.

I started with a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece of patterned paper. Here is a pattern for the placement of ScorTape.

To assemble the sour cream container tape together the 4 1/4 sides to resemble a toilet paper tube.  Next tape together one of the open ends and crimp be careful not to got up more than 1/4 inch.  Now you can fill the container with whatever goodies you choose. To finish the top you tape it together so that it goes the opposite way as the bottom.  Now that you have your container filled and almost ready to give you will need to add a tag.  For my tag I used #8819 Do Not Open that I colored with copics.  I added this to a snowflake base that I made with Spellbinders Create a Flake 4.  For a finally touch I added some fun white ribbon and a snowflake button.  If you have never made one of these fun sour cream containers you should give it a try.  I think you will enjoy making them as much as I did.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas!
