Inspiration from the Blogosphere!

Check out this fabulous tutorial from the head chef herself over at Jillibean Soup!

Sour Cream Containers

By Jill Yegerlehner

These cuties have become one of my favorite new things to make. I know they've been around for a while and I did not create anything new! I love the simplicity of them!

Step 1: Grab your papers, tacky tape (or some other sticky tape), twine, crimper and embellies.

Step 2: Cut your paper to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Step 3: Put tacky tape (or some other sticky tape) on 3 sides - 1 short and 2 long. Make sure to put the tape on the backside - or the patterned side that will be in the inside of your container. Peel off the tape cover.

Step 4: Roll 2 short sides together, overlap to form roll (like toilet paper roll).

Step 5: Pinch one of the ends together (I usually have the seam in the middle).

Step 6: Add your treats.

Step 7: Once you've filled it with treats, pinch it closed by pinching the second end in the opposite direction of the first seam.

Step 8: Crimp edges with a crimper. You can skip this step if you do not have a crimper. They still look cute ;).

Step 9: Embellish.
