Halloween is all about the candy right? This project started with a bag of orange striped paper straws that I bought on clearance last year. I thought the owl from the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set would make a great topper especially since the matching die cut is symmetrical so 2 owls can go back to back.
The owls were stamped in our new Basic Black Archival ink and her awesome eyes are a local craft store find. (LOVE the eyelashes!) The milk bottles are from the same craft store as well. They came in a pack of 6 for $9.99 but I used a 50% off coupon. :) You can also purchase them in a single bottle but the single ones in my local store were not smooth all the way around like the ones that came in the six pack.
I wrapped them with strips of paper from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper pack and one half of one of our new Spider Web Doilies. I am loving these doilies and have been using them every chance I get! The doilies come in a pack of 24 for only $4.50 and will be available to order on September 1st when the Holiday Catty goes live. The great thing about them (other than their obvious cuteness) is that they are white on the back side so they can be sponged any color or left white to resemble snowflakes.
The tags were stamped with the Sweet Hauntings stamp set, (also from the Holiday 2015 catalog) and punched with the Note Tag punch. The banner sentiment around the top of the straws is from the same set.
Last but not least, my treat bottles were finished off with a stitched satin bow and filled with pearl orange Sixlets from my local party store. I hope you liked my not-so-scary Howl-o-ween Treats and thanks for stoppin' by!
