SU Perfect Blend with Tag It

Amy at the Friday MashUp # 125 has a fun challenge this week- A-B-C, 1-2-3. The guidelines ask participants to use elements in the project beginning with A-B-C and use 1 embellishment, 2 stamp sets, and 3 colors. I was making favors for my upcoming  SU Perfect Blend class this Wednesday and they  fit in with the challenge perfectly.

Coffee Favors

It has been hard not to post this once I was done with the favors on Saturday morning… but I had to wait to post this until the last minute so I could surprise at least of few of my stamper gals tonight!

SU Perfect Blend Sour Cream Container

A- ANTIQUE Brad

B- Espresso BEANS

C-CHOCOLATE COVERED  treat in a Sour Cream CONTAINER

Espresso Beans

1- EMBELLISHMENT-Naturals Trim Ribbon

2- STAMP SET- SU Perfect Blend, SU Oh, Goodie

3- SU COLORS: Soft Suede, River Rock, Early Espresso

Sour Cream containers are soooooo easy to make to hold little gifts or treats. Start with  a 4 1/4 inch  by 5 1/2 inch piece of Designer Paper- it seems to be easier to work with than heavier card stock.

Put sticky strip on two of the longer sides and one of the shorter sides.

Roll the shorter side with the sticky strip removed over the other shorter side to create a tube.
