I saw these super cute Santa Claus sour cream containers and I just had to make them!? I can’t remember where I seen them but thanks so much.? If you email me I’ll be more than happy to give you credit and direct everyone to your blog.?
To make the sour cream container all you need to do is cut a piece of card stock 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″, with the 5 1/2″ side against the top of your cutter score at 1/4″ and fold over; apply sticky strip to the 1/4″ folded over section; find the center and apply sticky strip from the center to the outside edge; also apply sticky strip across the center fold approximately 1/2″ on both sides of the center fold.? Start with the side and remove the red liner from the sticky strip and fold your card stock in half and stick down, this should make it tube shaped; remove the red liner from the sticky strip on the piece that runs center to outside edge and stick shut; run this thru your crimper about 3 turns; fill with candy; remove the red liner from the sticky strip the runs across the center and stick shut in the opposite direction that the bottom is running.? The Santa Claus is made using the Scallop Circle punch, 5-Petal flower punch, Boho Blossoms punch, 1/2″ Circle punch, 1/4″ Circle punch, 1 3/8″ Circle punch, Word Window punch, Scallop Square punch.
This picture should give you some idea how they look from the side.
