Last year Stampin' Up! had the cutest little Halloween bags in the Holiday Catalog. I was hoping they would have something similar this year, but no such luck. The Muslin Bags are cute, but too expensive when you need a lot of them. So I decided to make the "Sour Cream Containers" out of Designer Series Paper. In case you haven't made them, here are the directions:
I used 6 x 6" pieces of DSP and put a piece of Sticky Strip on one edge. I should have put it all the way on that edge, as I had to go back and add more later when they didn't stay together.
Roll the DSP into a tube. Again- use the Sticky Strip on the whole edge!
All the rolled tubes and 2 finished containers on top. I forgot to take a picture of the next step, but it's pretty easy. Just flatten one end of the tube and put a piece of sticky strip inside to hold it closed. Fill with treats, then flatten the open end so that it is perpendicular to the first end you closed. I decided to punch holes and thread ribbon through to tie the container closed, which also makes it easy to open without destroying it!
A finished container, filled with treats!

I tried using a glue gun to put these together, but didn't have very good luck. Sticky Strip works much better! Especially on the bottom (sealed end). I decided to add a piece of Washi Tape to help hold them together and use it up.
