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.
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!
A- ANTIQUE Brad
B- Espresso BEANS
C-CHOCOLATE COVERED treat in a Sour Cream CONTAINER
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.
Remove one of the sticky strips from one of the longer sides and pinch together.Try to make the seam offset from the middle.
Now you can put in your treat or gift.
Remove the sticky strip from the other longer side and pinch it together in the opposite direction of the other side.
Crimp the ends and add any kind of tag with a sentiment and … Tada- instant cute little container you can customize for a treat like Candy Corn or a little gift like jewelry!
These are stinking cahoot! Thanks for making me need that stamp set!
Thanks, Cathy! That set is so fun to play with- you will not regret getting it.
Wow those goody bags and tags are adorable! What a great project!
Thank you, Brandi. The containers are so easy to make and can be so versatile- I am going to whip up some up for Halloween coming up!
What a neat little gift to give, and you got the ABC 123 recipe down perfectly, awesome job!
Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!
Thanks, Lisa. They fit in “perfectly” with the theme of SU Perfect Blend coffee stamps at class this week:)
I love your tags! Such a cute idea!! Where is you get your wire coffee cup?
