Twick or Tweet Tweats – sounds like Sylvester the cat with some cwazy lisp . . . When I saw Tiffany Miller's sour cream containers with the polka dot window sheets, I thought – what genius! How cute is it to be able to see what's inside the treat container. You can see her collection of three Halloween sour cream containers at her site, Tiffany's Cardique. (Isn't that a cute blog name?)
I absolutely love the Night & Day Designer Series paper – it has this lovely distressed look on a lot of the papers. It also includes two black polka-dot window sheets – how fun! Tiffany had such a great idea, too – you can fill these little containers with Hershey Kisses, M&M's, Skittles, Tootsie Rolls, etc., and throw in a plastic spider ring among the candy as a little "trick". So, check out what I found at Target – stetchy frogs.
Kind of reminds you of Harry Potter, doesn't it?

So, here's how you make the containers: Basically, it just takes a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" piece of paper (or 1/4 of a regular 8 1/2 x 11 sheet), some sticky tape, and a crimper. Run the adhesive on the very edge of the two long sides and one of the short ends. Put the two short ends together to form a tube. Pinch one of the open ends together and crimp. Then add a treat and pinch the other end together in the opposite direction to form the "twist", and crimp. Keeping the tube shape kind of works against gravity, so we found it worked best to staple the two crimped edges together – otherwise they came open at the most inopportune time and spilled candy on the floor. The dogs loved it.
