Debbie's Sweet Treat Holders!

Good Morning!

We're back today with 2 great gift or treat containers from Debbie!  Debbie really concentrated on giving you ideas for your Christmas packaging, I think you'll be super excited about her "sour cream" treat holders - I'm going to try some today!  Let's hear from Debbie!

Party Favors

These cute little party favors are often called "sour cream containers" because they resemble the packaging Wendy's uses for sour cream.

I used a 12x12 sheet of Webster's paper and cut it into 4"x6" pieces so I got 6 containers from a single sheet. Run one end through a crimper, fill with candy - each container holds about 7 Hershey kisses. Then tape and crimp the other side folding in the opposite direction. I cut out a star, scored, folded and inked to give it dimension....then added a tiny shiny dot of bling for sparkle. Punch a hole and tie your star on with a coordinating piece of twine. Add an embellishment to a basket or wood box, display on your desk at work to hand out to co-workers or sit the box on your entrance way table at home to give out as take-home gifts to guests.

Here is a great tutorial using an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper:

And Debbie also made this great gift bag using Webster's Christmas line...
Thanks so much, Debbie!
I hope that the team has been inspiring you with all of your Christmas crafting activies!  We'll be back tomorrow with a project from Becky!
