Chocolate… chocolate… chocolate… stamping…
Isn’t it great to have all your loves in one place? 🙂 This is a workshop project that I put together last week. The Bold Snowflake wheeled candy packets are the tried-and-true “sour cream container” that has been around forever. Definitely an old-y but good-y!
The snowman and the tag greeting are from the Punch Pals stamp set, and I watercolored this guy with my Watercolor Wonder Crayons (Bold Brights) and my Aqua Painters.
The container is easy to make, although tricky to describe if you’ve never seen it in action, so I’m including some step-by-step photo instructions here.
Start out with a 1/4 sheet of Cardstock Vellum (the heavier of the 2 weights that Stampin’ Up! carries). A quarter sheet is 4.25 x 5.5″. Use a Stampin’ Around Wheel to cover the vellum, then flip and place Sticky Strip around 3 of the edges, leaving one of the short edges free.
Remove the Sticky Strip backing and roll the vellum into a tube. The tube should be vaguely the size/shape of a toilet paper tube. But much cuter, of course. Unless you have really nice toilet paper!
Press down one of the ends so that it flattens one end of the tube.
Fill your container with candy (mine hold about 6-7 Hershey’s Kisses, although be sure to buy extra for the ones that never quite make it to your stamp project). Go ahead and squeeze the container closed by pressing the sides together opposite the direction of your first end. Don’t worry, it pretty much won’t close the wrong way 😉
Use your Crimper to crimp back and forth a few times at each end of the tube. Not only does the container look SO much cuter with crimped ends, but it will also give you a fabulously tight bond with the Sticky Strip. This way no Hershey’s Kisses will be spilling out when you aren’t ready for them.
Then just decorate a tag to match your container!
