One for the Kids - A Sweetie Lucky Dip

For all of you who have young children or do stalls at school fairs, here's a little idea for "sour cream containers".

I'm sure you've all heard of them, there's loads of tutorials on the web but here's a quick rundown .....

You need a piece of patterned paper 6" x 4 1/2" (I got these 6x6 packs for £2.00 each - that's only 4p a sheet)

attach double sided tape to two sides ...

roll into a tube and seal the bottom

pop in a sweetie (I used a selection) and run a bit of glue along the open top end ....

seal the open end (using the opposite orientation)  ....
  

then finish off by crimping both ends.

Edit: The sticky strip is not really strong enough to hold thick paper so best to use double sided tape to seal the top too.


I made a load of them for a school fair I did yesterday and sold them as a "Sweetie Lucky Dip".  Being cheap and cheerful they sold really well.

Happy Crafting
