My nieces are celebrating birthdays today and are both animal lovers. As they've come to expect something made by me I decided to try and baby-step my way back into crafting. Simple sour cream containers house the "green-one-size-fits-all" tied roll that is inside.
While these are called Sour Cream Containers by the crafting population, my kids and their friends know them as "Push Up Pops" due to the dessert treat that was/is offered at their schools.
A reminder of how these simple containers are made for a finished size of 6" x approx. 3-3/4":
- Start with a 6" x 8" piece of patterned paper.
- Attach Scor-Tape to one of the short sides.
- Roll up and adhere together. It will look like an empty tp roll at this point.
- Attach a strip of Scor-Tape to inside of the tube that you want to be the bottom, adhere.
- Crimp bottom.
- Twist slightly so that the top and bottom edges are opposite each other.
- Punch and set jumbo eyelets.
- Fill with shred and your choice of gift.
- Tie ribbon to close.
- Add coordinated tags.
