Would you like Sour Cream with that?

Hey there, stampers!  Happy Thursday.  I don't know about you but I'm ready for TGIF.  

Today I'm sharing an "oldie but a goodie".  (This one's for you Shannon!)  :-)   It's a design that's been around for a long time but it's perfect for every holiday.  It's the "Sour Cream Container".  It's one of those little treats/gifts that a great way to use up those scraps you have collecting in your craft room.  Come on....own up to it!  I know I have a bunch of them.  This one is made from a piece of Designer Series Paper cut at 4 1/2" x 6'.  Here's what it looks like....


It's the perfect way to wrap a a small gift for someone special....you can add some candy, maybe a pair of earrings....whatever you'd like. I used a scrap from the "Frostwood Lodge" DSP 124002.  


The stocking is stamped with the "Stitched Stockings" stamp set 123782 (wood)/123784 (clear).

And then I punched out the stocking using the "Stocking Builder Punch" - 124095.  I added one of the new Jingle Bells and a little piece of Baker's Twine and a little "bling" for good measure.


Wanna know the coolest part about this stamp set and punch combo??  You can do much more with it than just Christmas Stockings.  Here's a cute card by a talented stamper, Jackie Topa. with a beautiful example.

Too stinkin' cute, huh??
