Sour Cream Gift Container, Miniature Quilled Flowers

Happy July!

I made some 1" glass magnets, with yellow rose of Texas graphics. I wanted to wrap them but they are so small. They stack together easily held by the magnets and I wrapped them in tissue paper.


I decided to make a sour cream gift container using printed card stock. I made a tag and added tiny quilled flowers to match the paper I was using.


I used a 4" x 6" piece of card stock and rolled lengthwise into a tube as shown below. 
(10.16 cm x 15.24 cm)


I pinched the ends to close. I crimped the first end, applied glue inside along the edge, and crimped it again. After I put the magnets inside, I pinched the other end in the opposite direction. I repeated with crimping, gluing and crimping again.


I think it makes a nice presentation and this sour cream container is SO easy to make.



I purchased my graphics from Piddix at Etsy. She has so many prints in many sizes and you get instant download.

Have a fantastic week!

Cute magnets, but I really love the container. I've got to remember this for packaging earrings. I really like the crimped ends. Great idea!
