The September Paper Pumpkin was so much fun with the test tube vials. So many ideas on what could be put inside and different ways to decorate/ embellish the vial.
With today being Halloween, I thought I would share two quick treats I made with the vials and the Jar of Haunts stamp set. This set is so cute!
So the first project was made with Pumpkin Pie cardstock, 2″ wide strip, so that the end could be punched in the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. This simple project can be scored to any height you wish. I used my 1″ hole punch for this first project so that the tags attached to the vial could fit through since I made a deep ‘pocket’ for the vial.
I had to add a holder in the bottom section as well, otherwise the vial would have the ability to move around and slid out. I simply created a ‘u’ shaped bit of cardstock, punched the hole again and attached inside. I used some retired designer series paper and completed this treat holder with one of the eyeball jars I stamped from the Jar of Haunts and diecut with Everyday Jars Framelits. I coloured the eyeballs and water in using Blender Pens and the Pool Party and Wild Wasabi ink pads.
The second project is a bit more basic than the first. I had cut a strip of Whisper White and scored in 4 places to basically create a belly band (for a box). I punched a 3/4″ dia hole in the top portion and sandwiched this between two die cut mummies from the Jar of Haunts set.
I put my vial in and it toppled over! This is when I realized I needed to add some strength to reinforce the holder. I created two ‘u’ shaped pieces of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to insert into the open sides of the holder. This helped provide the stability it needed to hold up the vial!
As you can see, projects like this are trial and error for us demos as well 🙂 If at first you fail, try again until you succeed!
Happy Halloween and have a spooktacular day/ evening!
