Trick or Treat Containers

Posted by  ·  October 20, 2008  ·  Last Updated: October 20, 2008

These sour cream look-a-like containers would make great classroom party favors! You can embellish anyway you like or just use printed card-stock.

This sweet (dirty) little thumb decorated ours along with some rubber stamps

I turned her thumbprints into spiders and witches (older kids would have no trouble making them their own!) After our containers were glued and crimped we added googly eyes!

You can see my earlier post for directions on how to make sour cream look a like containers here. While it is quicker using double sided tape, today we were out and used glue stick. We used small clothes pins to hold the ends together. Once they stuck on their own we crimped.
