SSS and TPV: sour cream containers w/tags

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
Today and and sharing another set of sour cream containers.
These are for my preschoolers at church. 

I used Lawn Fawn's "Harvest Season" on the tags.
The Paper Variety Challenge inspired me to add the different colors leaves
rather than just stamping the sentiment.

Directions for the sour cream containers can be found HERE.
FYI, the video starts right away so have your sound adjusted.

I am submitting this project in the following challenges:

Stamps: Lawn Fawn's "Harvest Season"
Paper: Hobby Lobby racks
Inks: memento black, Distress Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade
Other: Twine and red line tape

WM 75: soccer treats

Today I am sharing some treats containers I made for the soccer team.
The sour cream containers were all the rage over
on Two Peas in a Bucket so I decided to try them.

So cute and VERY easy!

Here's the YouTube video by "Dawn" with the instructions.

The tags were made with circle punches and attached with maraschino twine.
I stamped the "you rock" in the center and then kind of off-stamped the ball for effect.

I put 2 chocolate soccer balls in each
and some M & Ms for a little noise when the boys shook them.


Stamps:  "you rock" is from Lawn Fawn's "Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum" (see below... this set is so darn versatile!) and the soccer ball on the tag is by Inkadoo.
Papers:  Hobby Lobby racks
Ink: Memento
Other: Twine, paper crimper

I am submitting this project in Wee Memories challenge #75:
gifts, tags and boxes.

If you decide to make some, let me know. 
I'd love to see other versions!
Thanks for looking,

Purchased the ADORABLE notebook paper stamp from Verve.
I intended to use it for little notes on school scrapbook pages,
but too cute to hoard it for just that!

The card features Basic Grey's "Olivia" papers.

The flower is by Hero Arts:
