Sour Cream treat holders

 At the last workshop we made these great treat holders that look like sour cream containers.  They are super easy to make, and fun to decorate for whatever event you got going on. 
What you need to know are the basics- then you can have fun.  The containers that are pictured here start with a piece of 5 1/4' x 4 1/4" card stock (you can use decorative paper too).  In both cases the paper was run through the Big Shot in an embossing folder.  Then you tape up the short side so the paper makes a tube.  Use good tape so they don't pop open.   Pick one end to tape closed.  If you want to add ribbon or some decorative
paper, stick it in the opening before you tape it closed.  Now pay close attention.  Fill your container with a treat, then pinch the open end closed so that it is perpendicular to the first closing.  It should look like a sour cream holder.  Use your good sticky tape to close this end. You can decorate the outside with fabric, ribbon, or tags.  The container to the left was copied from Stampin'Up!.  I used the new Spice Cake Designer Fabric to make a ribbon, added a Pool Party tag, and tied a Big button on with the Linen Thread.  All Supplies can be ordered on my SU web site. 
The Halloween container is a little different in that I punched a hole in the paper before rolling it into a tube, then taped a window sheet over the hole.  The rest is all the same, I just changed the decorations.  It was so cute filled with Fall color M&Ms and candy corns, but I ate them before I took the picture!
Let me know if you have questions or comments.
