Sour Cream Container "Countdown to Christmas" idea using Stampin' Up's Morning Post Numbers stamp set

This post is from today's Stampin' Up blog here.  I love the idea of using these cute sour cream containers in a new way!

"Countdown to Christmas"

Got someone in your house who just can’t wait for Christmas? Help them count down the days by making this fun project.

The design/layout of the numbers and tags is from page 13 of the holiday catalog (US/CA); the stamp set can be found on page 36 of the holiday catalog.  The tags were die cut using the Deco Labels Framelits.

 The containers were made using the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack. So easy—no cutting necessary!

To make the containers, apply the adhesive like this. (I recommend using Sticky Strip.)

Roll the container into a tube, then pinch one end closed. Add candy (or whatever you want to put inside), then pinch the other end closed in the opposite direction.

Attach the tag using a stapler, then adhere the button using a Glue Dot to hide the staple.

Twelve containers will fit nicely inside the Extra-Large Gift Box. To make the box look a little more festive, I wrapped Season of Style Designer Washi Tape around it.
