Whimsical Wednesday Challenge - Anything But a Card

Good Morning,

I've decided for this week's challenge to make it an "anything but a card" challenge. I have my monthly stamp club tomorrow night and we'll be make some non-card projects. One of the ones we are going to try is a sour cream container, made from a single sheet of paper. This is a quick and inexpensive way to make a little candy treat for any occasion! Visit this link for an easy tutorial on SCS.

I'll be back later this afternoon to post my creation. Hope you'll join this challenge! Have fun! :)

Here's my "anything but a card" challenge. I made a couple sour cream containers using the new Berry Bliss DSP from Stampin' Up!'s Spring/Summer Collection. This paper is very pretty and perfect for Valentine's Day. Making these containers is super easy and only takes about 5 minutes!

To make the sour cream containers you'll need a piece of light weight paper, such as Stampin' Up! designer series papers, cut to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". You'll also need sticky strip or very sticky double sided tape. To seal the ends, a crimper works best, but I didn't have one, so I just pressed really hard and folded the ends up a little. For the complete instructions, visit the link posted above. Beate's tutorial on SCS is very simple to follow and she has great pictures posted for each step as well. You can fill your container with any small candy, such as m&ms or Hershey Kisses.
