Sour cream container favors decorated using the watercolor crayons and blender pens.

3/8 inch taffetta ribbon - I used So Saffron
I placed the design so there was an inch from the edge and 2 inches between. The design is 2 inches wide so I placed the guide for my bottom row at 3 inches, the middle row at 7 inches and the top row at 11 inches. (Love the grid paper - it really helps).
I took a blender pen and went over the area. So much easier then trying to get it smooth looking with the crayon. To clean your blender pen between colors just scribble on some scrap paper until the color is all gone. The tip may be stained a little but that is okay. A friend makes sure she uses one tip for reds/pinks, another for yellows, another for blues, another for greens, another for purples, etc. I am not organized but a helpful hint is - before using a blender pen scribble on some scrap paper to make sure the previous user cleaned the pen when finished.
Pinch the top edge together at a right angle to the bottom. DO NOT ADD STICKY STRIP but crimp it in the crimper. (I use a ribbon to tie mine together but you could fill at this point and then use Sticky Strip to seal it closed - exactly like the sour cream containers. I just like the bow on them and then the recipient does not have to tear it open.)
Using a Crop-a-dile, make two holes near the center of the top edge.
Run a ribbon through the holes with the ends toward the front. The seam in the paper roll should be along the back side.
Fill with sweets or a small surprise and tie a bow to close it. These are so easy and quick. I made 36 of them in a couple hours even with all the coloring I did. It would be even faster if you used a decorative Designer Series Paper.
