  1. It's totally adorable, but I don't understand how you line up the seams to make the shape. *banghead*

  3. It's just called a sour cream container because there are some brands that place sour cream in it. You of course would put treats in it. The shape is done by twisting and stapling one end opposite of the other. Hope this helps :)
