Halloween Sour Cream Containers

Here is how to make these fun and easy Halloween sour cream containers. Don't they look just like the shape of the containers of sour cream you get at Wendy's? :)

1. Start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of paper or cardstock.

2. Put adhesive on the two long sides and one short side. Now put the short sides together to create a tube, just enough so that the adhesive overlaps the other side.

3. Now close one end together (your adhesive is already on the inside of the paper so you are all set!)

4. For an extra touch, you can crimp the end you just glued together, crimping about 1/2 to 1 inch. It's just a cute little touch to add, but totally optional so don't worry about it if you do not have a crimper handy.

5. Fill with candy and treats (Yum!). Now repeat steps 3 and 4, but this time, close the tube at 90 degrees from the other end. So, one end will close one direction, and the second end will close another direction, as shown in the photo.

6. Last of all, punch a small hole in one end and tie on a cute tag. That's it! You can make these in less than 3-5 minutes so they are perfect for making for party favors etc! Have fun!

Happy Halloween!

I never send Halloween cards to anyone (I'd love to hear if you all are the same!) but I LOVE to make Halloween treat and goodie gifts! They are so fun to make for Halloween parties, teachers at school, friends etc. Here is just a sampling of a few goodies I've made this year. The Coffin treat box was inspired by Jess Ballas. You've got a few more days until Halloween so there is still time to make some of these little goodies for yourself! :)

Happy Haunting!

October Stamp of the Month

Today here in Utah, the weather definite took a turn towards winter. Snow capped the mountains and there was a chill in the air (not to mention a ton of rain that will turn to snow before I know it!). It made me think of Christmas coming around the corner! I realized that I need to get started on making Christmas cards! :) So, for all of you who are realizing the same thing, the October stamp of the month is an ADORABLE Christmas stamp set called Share the Magic. Here is one fun idea you can do with this fun and festive stamp set!
