Sour Cream containers... it's old school (I distinctly remember having ice-cream from ice-cream trucks as a child...).  I love vintage and celebrating candy (seriously - it's an addcition that I try to avoid...sigh).  Happy Harvest/Halloween... I hope that yours is sweet!!
How to create a Sour Cream/Ice Cream holder... it's simple! 
~ Grab a card stock and cut it into 4's.
~ Taking this Whisper White card stock (#100430) cut into 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece decorate it.
~ Here I used the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (#130134) in Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight polka dots to create these 'candy corn' stripes!
~  Apply Sticky Strip adhesive (#104294) to the back side... Along one Short Side . 
~  Apply another strip across the top of one long side - 1/2 way down.
~  Apply the last piece in the middle of the other long side.
It's easy...
~ Now remove the cover on the sticky strip on the short side and roll it to the top of the other side for a strong adhesive. 
~  Remove the side from the top and adhere closed.
~ Fill with Sweet Treats... or gifts of any kind!  Here Candy Corn fills the Candy Corn Treat Holder!!
Isn't that just too sweet?!?!  Who wouldn't LOVE to receive this gift?!?!
Remove the last piece of the Sticky Strip that was on the middle of the other side.  Pushed closed so that it has this unique shape.  Use the Bone Folder (#102300) to strengthen the adhesive!
Pretty Cute... easy and sweet to give!!
Stamping the Pumpkin Pie ink (#126945) and the new Tags 4 You (Holiday pg. 37 #131823) and it's coordinating Label Bracket Punch (#132153) for this adorable tag!! 
 
Our adhesive backed Pearls Basic Jewels collection (#119247) has these tiny pearls that make a great body for this spider!  Color it in with a Black Permanent Marker for this shiny, raised body!  You soooo wouldn't want this little guy dropping down on you... unless he was bring you a gift like this!!!!
I debated where to apply it... it's cute on the front of the holder... but I changed it up...
Using the Whisper White Bakers Twine (#124262) holds this now swinging tag on one side of this cute holder!  It's color coordinated to match the packaging... fill it with a variety of items!  From Candy Corn, to Erasers (hand then out at school), to jewelry... it's a fun and cool Halloween Treat Holder that is sure to sweeten another's day!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
