Wedding Favors.. Sour Cream Containers


Since Spring Weddings are already being planned, I decided to make simple but elegant Wedding Favors out of sour cream containers for the challenge this week at Getting Cricky with K. Andrews .  Too bad there isn't a better name for these little containers, the word "sour" just doesn't sound that elegant but that's what they are thanks to Wendy's.

When I got married, 13 years ago, I had the big church, big dress wedding.  If I had to do it again (not that I'm planning on getting married again...LOL),  I'd totally do a shabby chic, barefoot, beach wedding and make these favors! 


Here's how to make Sour Cream Containers:

Strong adhesive
 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card stock (I embossed mine with dots)
Tape 3 sides only
Roll and adhere into cylinder. 
 Pinch and adhere at each end, opposite directions.

For the tag, I cut a 2 inch scalloped circle (Alphalicious cartridge) out of Core Paper  which I sanded and texture embossed.  Have you ever used this color Core paper?  It's awesome.....looks totally like denim when distressed, right? 

I then gave it at Shabby Chic look by adding burlap, raffia ribbon and these cute little Shabby Chic roses that {dollar bin at Michael's} and stamped  K. Andrew Designs  Fashionable Friends and Winter Wishes sentiments together.

  1. Hi Holly
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I am coming to Vegas for a week on Feb 28th, do you need me to bring you a can of Timmys coffee? You don't have them there yet do you? LOL! Great wedding favors and I must agree, a beach weeding sounds so much better.

  9. WOW Holly! They look awesome. I love that you didn't use the paper crimper. I don't have one so I thought I couldn't make sour cream containers but you showed me I can. I may use this for the next classroom giveaway.
