Sour Cream Container Advent

Sour Cream Container Advent Place Setting (18)

Whenever I am looking for a cute container or fun accent for a party I know just what to make.  These sour cream containers are just the perfect thing!
{You may have seen this post on the CSI Project last week}.

They can be created using your choice of patterned paper, to coordinate with your color scheme or theme.
They are very simple to make and can be filled with all sorts of goodies!

My family is using this Upcycled Random Acts of Kindness Calendar again this year.  
So while you may choose to number and string these sour cream containers together, they would also make great Place Settings for your Christmas table or gathering.

That is what I plan on doing with them ~ you can see that I have even added our guests initials to each one.

You will need:
double sided tape {I found mine at the dollar store}
sheets of patterned paper {cut to 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches}
candy
paper crimper {optional}

Place double sided tape {as pictured} on the wrong side of your paper.  One piece of tape {4 1/4″} along the shorter edge, one piece of tape {2 1/2 “} in the center of the top longer edge and one piece of tape {2 1/2”} adjacent to the first piece of tape on the bottom longer edge.

Peel off the backing to the 4 1/4″ piece of tape and affix the shorter sides together, creating a cylinder shape.

Peel one of the 2 1/2″ pieces of tape from the inside of the cylinder.  Squash the edges together.  Fill the open container with a treat of your choice.  Peel the backing off of the last piece of tape.  Squash that end together.

You may want to crimp the ends of the container.  This helps the ends to adhere and stick together.

   Decorate as desired.

 I used bakers twine, snowflakes and rub on letters.

Create 12 or 24 and number them.  String together with bakers twine and you have a simply gorgeous Sour Cream Container Advent.
