Halloween Sour Cream Containers

Hi Everyone! I posted these instructions on my customer blog, but thought you all might like to see them too. :)

Here is how to make these fun and easy Halloween sour cream containers. Don't they look just like the shapeofthe containers of sour cream you get at Wendy's? :)

1. Start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of paper or cardstock.

2. Put adhesive on the two long sides and one short side. Now put the short sides together to create a tube, just enough so that the adhesive overlaps the other side.

3. Now close one end together (your adhesive is already on the inside of the paper so you are all set!)

4. For an extra touch, you can crimp the end you just glued together, crimping about 1/2 to 1 inch. It's just a cute little touch to add, but totally optional so don't worry about it if you do not have a crimper handy.

5. Fill with candy and treats (Yum!). Now repeat steps 3 and 4, but this time, close the tube at 90 degrees from the other end. So, one end will close one direction, and the second end will close another direction, as shown in the photo.

6. Last of all, punch a small hole in one end and tie on a cute tag. That's it! You can make these in less than 3-5 minutes so they are perfect for making for party favors etc! Have fun!

Halloween Goodies

Thought you might like to see a few Halloween goodie ideas that I've played with! I never give out Halloween cards, but that's a fun thing to do with Halloween papers and stamps! The coffin treat boxes uses the September stamp of the month and the rest uses the Hooligans WOTG kit. And check out the monster tag on the sour cream container...I used a google eye...inspired by Kim Lundstrom...thanks Kim! :)

To get the template for the coffin boxes go to: I got the idea for these coffin boxes from Jess Ballas. Note...the skull has one of the sparkles on his eye...kind of fun!

Take the Poll!

Hey Everyone!
Our team blog has a new poll on it! Come play and take the poll at: :)


Studio J

I am so loving Studio J! I can't even tell you how much! It's so stinkin' easy and the layouts look great. You know I went to make a traditional layout for an expo I was doing and uploaded a print to Walmart to have printed as a 5x7. It cost me $2.85!! Just for that picture! And with a Studio J membership I'm only paying $3.25 per I get a free sheet protector and free shipping. :) So if I were to duplicate that same page the traditional way, just the background piece of cardstock would cost the 40 cents difference between 2.85 and $3.25! Not to mention any other papers, embellishments etc. What a steal! When I show my customers the cost effectiveness they light up! If you haven't played with Studio J, you totally need to try it and show it off to your customers! :)

This is one of the 4 new cards I put on my blog this morning. If you would like to see the others and get a list of supplies to make this cards you can find it at
