I’ve been wanting to make these sour cream candy containers for quite some time now. In fact, I bought the crimper over a year ago and have never used it until tonight. Can you believe it! Peachy Keen is having a challenge where you have to create a project using a toilet paper roll and a Peachy Keen stamp. The sour cream container immediately popped into my head. These are very easy to make. Just cut your paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 then use some strong adhesive to secure the paper to your toilet paper roll. Use some more strong adhesive to close the ends shut — with the ends going opposite directions. Crimp the ends and you have yourself a nice, sturdy sour cream candy container. Easy peasy! While I was at M’s last week, I noticed that the Puffers were on clearance. So I picked up some heart shaped ones. I got mine for $1.49 each (normally $5.99). There was a gem on the front of the hearts. I carefully took the gem off and then stamped an adorable Peachy Keen face to the front of the heart using StazOn ink. Your Peachy Keen stamps are not just for stamping paper, you can stamp just about anything with them. Cool, huh.

Now, I have Blue Clues in my head….lol. I got this super cute mailbox SVG from My Scrap Chick. OMG, I just love this little mailbox. It is super easy to put together. The designer paper is from Recollections and the brad is from the Eyelet Center. I cut the SVG on my Cricut Expression using the Sure Cuts A Lot software.
