Happy Friday! They are calling for our first snowfall this afternoon and I can't even believe it... we are not used to dealing with snow here in Central Virginia so I hope it holds off until tonight. With Christmas just a short two weeks away, Rachel asked us to create quick & easy party favors for our Fabulous Friday projects over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. I created this open-end sour cream container that my friend and fellow demonstrator Barb Mullikin shared on her blog earlier this week. You can see that post here, complete with a video.
Regular sour cream containers are crimped or held shut with strong adhesive and you basically have to destroy them to get into the candy inside. I loved this idea when I saw it because the receiver can re-gift it on to someone else once they eat their candy inside. If you haven't tried making these they are super-easy!
Cut a sheet of DSP to 6" x 5-1/2". Score along the 6" side at 1/2" so that you when that flap is folded over you end up with a 5-1/2" square. Use a bone folder to curve the DSP so that you can roll it into a tube easier. I used tear & tape adhesive and this came together in minutes. I embellished it with two images from the Labels to Love stamp set and cut the tag out with the coordinating Everyday Label punch. Added a few rhinestones and attached it to the sour cream container with stampin' dimensionals. Doesn't get much easier than that!
Here is one more view of my finished party favor. Imagine a cute basket filled with this for your guests to take as they leave your party - fun! For even more quick & easy party favor inspiration please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
