Sour Cream Container – Party Bags

Sour Cream Container Party Bags
This idea follows my recent acquisition of 100 paper candy striped, sweet bags from e-bay (7ins x 5ins), it’s an idea I have used a few times over the years, but not using a “ready made” bag.
I trimmed about an 1 – 1.5ins from the top of the bag, only to make the finished carton smaller, I could have used the bag as it was.
Then, to make the jubbly carton type shape I squeezed the sides of the bag together ….
……. at this point you would fill the carton/bag with sweets etc. and then stick the edges together to seal the carton/bag, I just used a few dabs of pva glue…..
Sour Cream Container Party Bags.1…. and when dry I just added a bow …. done and dusted and very simples!

I bought some of these bags from amazon. To be honest from the reviews I expected them to be a bit thicker. This is a good idea. I work in a sweet shop and have tossed them aside thinking they would come in handy if we ran out of bags. Maybe I could use them after all. Good luck with the wedding. Enjoy the day, The Duke will be there in your heart. xx
