Thinking Outside the Box Blog Hop – Sour Cream Container

Happy Saturday everyone! Today’s project is super sweet, super cute and super easy! I will be showcasing how to make a sour cream container, and with Easter around the corner this is a quick and easy project that packs a punch, as well as treats! How great would these be as a little table setting gift, you could fill them up with chocolate eggs, jelly beans, or anything else you can imagine!

The best part, Stampin Up created a die set that makes creating these little beauties so easy! The die set is the Petite Treats Dies order #146827.

You can use cardstock or Designers Series Paper. I will be showcasing a few different projects using DSP.

Step 1

You will want to cut your paper to 5 ½” x 4 ½”. The die set allows you to create multiple different versions, with different tops. They are created by interlocking the tops to the base. You will see how this works in the video provided.

Step 2

Once you have your container cut, you will want to gently press on the embossed lines so that you will know where your creases are. This will make it easier for you when you put your container together. You will want to use tear tape as this will keep them solidly together. See photo to see where you will want to apply the tape.

Once you have applied the tear tape, you will put it together. See video on how to assemble.

Step 3

Once assembled you can decorate any way that you want!

For the containers that I made, the first two I used the Share What You Love DSP, and the first container was decorated using punches. I punched out a 2” circle from Basic Black cardstock, and 1 ¾” circle from Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the hello beautiful sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp set, using Momento Black. The butterflies were punched from the Butterfly Duet punch and this set can be purchased as a bundle with an additional savings of 10%. The Butterfly Gala Bundle order #150599.

The second container I used the Dragonfly dies and copper foil, and then cut the little dragonflies apart to have them individually on the container.

The third container showcased in the video, I used the Gingham Gala DSP, to create the carrot container! Using my Paper Snips, I fringed the top.

Here is a video I made on how to put them together!
