Stampin' Up Design Day

Welcome to another Stampin' Up Design Day.  Today I made my first attempt at sour cream containers. These are fun treats for the holidays since they have some yummy candy inside!
I used the "Letters from Santa" Stampin' Up paper.  For two of the sour cream containers I used one side of the paper and then used the other side of the paper for the other two.  I was able to make 4 sour cream containers from one 12x12 sheet of paper.  I also used a paper crimper for the edges of the containers.  
The postage stamps are also from the same paper line, I just cut each stamp out individually from a whole page of nothing but stamps.  I added some stickles, Twinery twine and tulle.
I used a snowflake punch for the snowflake background for this Santa and sleigh stamp.  I tied it all together with some twine.
This snowflake called for a little bling and I simply punched a hole in the stamp and tied it to the snowflake with the twine. Of course I added some sparkle to the ornament with some stickles.
I added two punched snowflakes to the nutcracker stamp and added some Stampin' Up ribbon, a button from the Stampin' Up Designer collection and some twine.  I think these would be perfect treats to leave on the desks of some of my co-workers.

  1. Thanks so much for joining my challenge I have yet to try to make these but you have inspired me to try them. I love the papers you used and the way you decorated them. I think they have a wonderful vintage feel

  2. The sour cream containers are so cute. I'm sure everyone will love getting these.
    Thanks for being my 149th follower. I'm now a follower of yours.
    Thanks Dana@ papermemories4u@

  3. I'm confused, sour cream doesn't come like this in Australia, Did you create the container using scrapbooking paper or cover something already shaped that way? (Found you via Consumer Crafts on Facebook)
