Valentine Containers | Skip To My Lou

I love these sour cream look a like containers.

I have been making them for years, but with all the new printed papers and embellishments it is a new quick an easy craft. I found everything I needed at Michael’s Arts & Crafts. Look for heavyweight paper or cardstock {loving this pad from Martha Stewart} for these containers, cute embellishments, adhesive tape runner and a Fiskars paper crimper.

These containers can be made any size. I cut paper 4.25″ X 5.5″ (roughly cutting an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper in half).

With a tape runner put two rows of tape on one edge. Glue stick or double sticky tape can also be used.

Put the adhesive tape runner {my favorite} along the end and one side of the paper on the wrong side.

Roll paper into a tube, overlapping the edge about 1 inch.

Pinch the edge with the adhesive closed. Place the closed end in the paper crimper. Turn crimper about three to four times.

Fill container with goodies. Place adhesive on the inside edge of the other end. Press end together in the opposite direction. Crimp close.

It works best if the seam is off center.

Attach embellishments to the containers. These make a fun containers to hold yummy goodies for your special Valentine!
