January Hostess Club Goodies

  We're sitting here watching the SuperBowl but as we're not invested at all in either team I figure I don't have to be glued to the game and can multitask and show off these cute little sour cream containers.  I made these for my 2 hostess club hostesses last month.  I filled them with some fun embellishments that they could use on their Valentine's Day cards.  They are just the right size for some little goodies and they take just seconds to make.  Check out this tutorial here on Splitcoaststampers for the details.  They do such a great job I don't feel the need to re-create the wheel!

  I know they are called sour cream containers but to be honest I've never ever seen sour cream come out of anything that is this shape!  So I'm thinking it might be a regional thing; that or I'm totally clueless which is probably the case!

  I personalized each one with my hostesses first initial.  It was the first time I had used my new Simple Letters Big Shot die and I'm already finding so many other projects to use letters on that I can't believe I hadn't gotten them sooner.  First, I cut the letters out of the thin piece of cardboard that comes inside Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper; it's the perfect weight to use on a project like this.  I cut the letters again using the Love Patterns DSP (available only until Feb. 14) and adhered them to the cardboard.  I punched a small hole through the sour cream (???) container and the corner of the letter and used some retired ribbon to tie them together.

Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!

  1. Amanda, believe it or not, I'm working on some of these myself tonight for a Weds. project! Love how you personalized yours with initials! Great job!!! Thanks for sharing...

  2. Sometimes at restaurants they would serve sour cream in small single serving containers shaped just like this. I haven't seen them in years though! I like the personalization you added with the letters. Gail

  3. Love these things. I've made them before we M&M's or small candies inside.

  4. These are soooo pretty!! I'm sure they will be well received!


  5. Cute idea! I love how you personalized them too! I need to remember this idea for my clubs. :-)


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
