Trick or Treat with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff & a Sale

I was trying to come up with some quick and easy projects for Halloween when I spied my bin of washed out Starbucks frap bottles. I kept my project relatively easy so that I could duplicate it and alter several bottles.

I printed several of the skull labels (for multiple bottles) from Vintage Halloween Labels on orange card stock, cut out with my nesties and sponged the edges with black ink. On the top of the bottle, I used a circle of purple DP and one of the circular labels from the Halloween Odds & Ends freebie digi set Lindsay offered last week printed on orange paper. It looked a little plain so I added a button but I was thinking of making an eyeball using punches. (Too freaky??) Honestly, it took me less time to decorate the bottle than it did to get the original label and the gummy residue off of it. That is what is so great about the Vintage Halloween Labels set. You can do so much with them for a nice impact with out it taking a ton of time.

Here is a look at the entire set which can be used to make treat packaging, cards, or even jazz up the bottles and other items used at a Halloween party. Although coloring looks great, if you don't feel like it, a little sponging is just perfect for these labels.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope this gave you some ideas for Halloween. If you like the Vintage Halloween Labels set or any other digi stamp set or SVG file set from Linday's Stamp Stuff, you are extra lucky today. Lindsay is having a September sale with 30% off everything in her mygrafico store through 9-17.

Remember to stop by the rest of the DT to see what wonderful creations they devised this week. Lindsay will have a freebie posted on her blog.

This is a great idea, I can see these filled with candy at Xmas as me thinking now. Great job and perfectly decorated for Halloween.

I guess we had jars on the brain this week ;) Love the eyeballs and I wish I had thought about printing my labels out on something other than white...Love the orange!

Love your jar! They eyeballs are so creepy! If you had a little "collection" of these jars, you could set up Frankenstein's lab!

Hi Cheryl, great way to use up your empties, fabulous.

Gina said...

Very cute!! You just gave me an idea too. For some reason my 80 year old grandmother gets such a kick out of Halloween candy that looks like eyes, especially these and the gum. She would love something like you made here.

Cheryl Walker said...

YUK!!! Just kidding...the eyeballs are a bit creepy. Love what you did with the bottle. You are so creative!!

Annika said...

What is a frap bottle??? Nevermind, it looks DEAD cool!!!
That was a real bad pun. duh.

Margie said...

Cheryl, this is soo awesome!! And the eyeballs are PERFECT!

Curt in Carmel said...

Talk about a great recycling project! I love the eyeball candy you put inside. It is so perfect. By the way, there is a product called "Goof Off" that really works great on taking labels off. You can get it at hardware stores and most grocery stores. Best, Curt

Colleen said...

Super Cute!! I keep those bottles too...they are my favorite dust collectors..hehe...maybe time to dust them off!

Tammy said...

Awesome Halloween project!! Great idea using Starbucks bottle!

Papertrails by a paper lover said...

Love the recycled bottles. This looks adorable and yummy! I use Goo Be Gone on my bottles to remove labels.

Micki said...

LOVE it!!!!!! Here's a trick to get the label & residue off. I fill the sink with hot soapy water and then let the bottle soak. the label literally floats off (I leave the bottle in the full sink over night), then I run them with the dishes in the dishwasher, voila....all clean.

Seriously, awesome and love those eyeballs. :-)
