Sour Cream Treat Containers – by Barb Schram

Quick note before we begin: ALL Christmas Collections have been reduced! Links to each collection at bottom.

Also, they have been grouped into Bundled Specials — find these quickly under Daily Specials.

Barb has a fun treat project to share with us today – sour cream containers.  Remember those?  They’ve been popular for some time, and I must admit that I have never made one.  But I surely am tempted now!  Barb’s trio is not only sweet – but quick and easy to make.  Make sure you click into her blog linked below for some instruction on how to create these fun containers.  Barb used a Christmas pad by Kaisercraft that has a bit of an earthy feel to it that looks just perfect on these treat containers.  She added a bit of trim to each and a tag, using the die cut punch outs from the back of the pad.  Although these treats leave a fabulous first impression, they are really quite quick and easy to make — and who doesn’t love that.  Let’s take a look:


Here are the three containers. All different, but coordinated.  And what a great way to use up those little bits and pieces of ribbon, trim and string!

You can find Barb’s post with further explanation on her blog here. Wonderful tutorial included.
