Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is for Sour Cream Container. I thought it would be another great little container to show before Valentine. They are super quick and very easy to make.


I made this sample when I wrote the tutorial.

I used a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Le Jardin Designer Paper.

The centerpiece is stamped with stamps from the Carte Postale stamp set.


I also made a clear sour cream container out of a 1/4″ sheet of acetate and the Happy Heart Day stamp set to show off a slight variation.

 Additional info: I used Sticky Strip to tape my Acetate sour cream container. BUT….after 1 1/2 weeks (yesterday) it popped apart. If you want your sour cream container to hold longer then that, use eyelets or brads additionally on the short ends.

  12. Beate this is such a cute little container. I am going to make them for my neighbors children. Sorry I havent participated in the weekend challenges lately. I am going to try this weekend.
    I also think it is a wonderful thing you are doing sending cards to all the troops. My son is a reservist here in Canada and is hoping that he can help the cause overseas one day so I think that sending all those cards will make them all feel so good.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
