Okay, these are the easiest and most adorable candy containers! I'll show you step by step how to make these little "sour cream containers" filled with your favorite candy for the holiday...
First, take a decorative 12x12 sheet of paper and cut six 4x6 rectangles like so:Next, glue the short ends, to model a toilet paper roll. Use wet glue, but not too much so the paper doesn't warp. Let it dry.
Next, pinch one end and glue with wet glue together. I always put the seem in the middle.
Now, crimp the ends just 3-4 crimps, and then back out of it and release.
It should look like this:
Fill the container with candy (m&m's or candy corn is my favorite!) Do not overfill the containers--they'll bust open.
The container will naturally fold the opposite way of the bottom. Don't force it--it is supposed to work this way.
Now, pinch the top together and glue the inside just like the bottom.
Crimp the top just like the bottom.
And there you have it! I always punch a hole and add ribbon and a tag at the top for just a little something extra. The kids love them. Note: Don't use heavy cardstock or double sided paper--you want a lighter weight. They are great for any holiday--just use seasonal paper. Same thing holds true for showers as well.
Now get moving!
