Sour Cream Container?

That is what this reminds me of. Aren't they cute? Get a peek at that fabric!!! I'm not a seamstress nor will I ever try to be (I know my limitations!), but I have to say, if any fabric has "sold" me.. its the Stampin Up Fabrics. Oh my gosh they are so beautiful.. and the best part.. they tear wonderfully to give that "shabby chic" kinda look, which I love! Today I used colors from the Spice Cake Suite! This is some of the yummy things you can find in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this suite. I love the colors featured in this: soft suede, more mustard, pool party, pear pizzaz, river rock, and very vanilla. Its so soft and so fall!

These little favors are so easy to make! Think of the possibilities for the holidays: teacher gifts, a little something for a neighbor, a dining room table decoration with an extra goodie tucked inside. The possibilities are endless with these.. for any season or party theme or reason!

To make:

Cut your paper or card stock into a square or rectangle in the size you desire. I used 5 1/4 inches x 4 1/4 inches piece of card stock.

Roll your paper to form a cylinder and adhere the sides together using Sticky Strip (snail just doesnt quite to the trick). I rolled mine widthwise to form a cylinder that was 4 1/4 inches tall.

Close one end of the cylinder, and adhere, using sticky strip.

Fill the twisty favor about 2/3 full with a treat of your choices, leaving space at the top to close and crimp the favor.

Close the top so that it is perpendicular to the bottom, and adhere, using sticky strip.

Finish by crimping both ends and adding any embellishments you like! Tada... instant party favors and guaranteed smiles!
