MCT 12 Days of Christmas - Day 12


It's our last day of the My Creative Time "12 Days of Christmas"!  It's been a lot of fun, and I hope you've been as inspired as I have with all of the projects that have been shared by Emma and the rest of the design team!  If you arrived here from Jeanne,  then you are headed in the right direction.  If not, please start at Emma's blog here.  Emma's got lots of fun news today, along with an AWESOME giveaway!!!


For my project today, I made sour cream containers filled with some treats for my students.  These are very easy to make and just perfect for when you need to mass produce.  If you've never made these or seen them made, you can watch my video below.


To make 20 of these, I only needed 5 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock.  Not bad!


To decorate each one, I used Emma's Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies, along with her Build a Banner Kit for the "To/From" tag.  The sentiments and images on the stitched circles are all from All Around Christmas, and the "To" and "From" are from Classmate Valentines.  I love that Emma has included To/From on several of her stamp sets, each in a different size and style.  There is one for every project!


There is even a perfect sentiment for my students who don't celebrate Christmas.


Recipe:

Recollections "Sugar Plums" Patterned Paper
AC "Jolly" Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, & Rustic White Cardstock
My Creative Time "Scallop & Stitched Circles Dies" & "Build a Banner Kit"
My Creative Time "All Around Christmas" & "Classmate Valnetines" Stamp Sets
Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, & New Leaf Ink
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Copic Markers
Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist Topnotch Twill Ribbon
Casa Collection Organdy Ribbon

These are so cute. I've made the sour cream containers from toilet paper rolls and covered them with thin paper, but it's much easier with patterned cardstock. Love these, Katie!

My Creative Time said...

Okay, now I feel very "dirty" after watching your video!!! lol.... your stamps are "SPOTLESS" & mine are filthy!!! hahahaha!
GREAT VIDEO & AWESOME TREATS! Your students are going to LOVE them!
Big HUGE hugs,
Emma;)

Wow! I feel so sheltered as I don't know how it's been possible for me to never have heard of making "sour cream" containers and using them for anything other than, well, sour cream! Lol. How fun and cute! These would be perfect for dressing up stocking stuffers or using that as party favors.

Thanks so much for sharing!
