My kids and I made these sour cream container look alikes for Valentine’s Day. This simple design allows for lots of creativity. We used white cardstock that we stamped with hearts, but colored papers, paper with your writing and drawings, or other decorative papers or materials (wallpaper, etc.) could be used.
How to Make Sour Cream Containers
We started with half of a sheet of cardstock. We then stamped hearts on the paper.
Put double-sided tape down the short side of the paper. Then roll the paper up to make a tube.
Gently squeeze the tube on one end. Place a piece of double-sided tape at the end on the inside so when you squeeze the end all the way shut it will stick. Squeeze the end shut. Take a paper crimper (This thing is a HUGE hit with my kids—well worth the bucks!) and crimp the end closed. We crimp enough into the container that we have 4 or 5 crimping lines.
Fill the container with treats and or some trinkets. Now gently squeeze the other end in the OPPOSITE direction. Put tape along the inside at the end and then crimp shut. The crimping makes it look just like a sour cream container.
