Want to make an adorable Halloween gift for someone special? I do and I did!! This darling soap container is for the owner of my local stamp store, StampWorks in Chandler, AZ. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it! I have a feeling all of the hard working stampers that visit her store will be using it and enjoying some great Hanna Stamps images while they're at it!!
This is an apple shaped liquid soap container that I purchased (smells apple-y too!)from a home store. To cover up the original label, I punched two scalloped oval shapes from cardstock (white and lavendar). I stamped some Halloween Hanna Stamps images and colored them in with markers and colored pencils.
Since the container had a strange shape (remember the apple thing?), I had to take a couple tries at getting the label to adhere. I finally succeeded when I took scissors and put small slits inbetween each petal on the scalloped oval (on both layers). Then, I attached the white layer to the lavendar layer and sprayed spray adhesive onto the backside of the lavendar layer. That held it in place for me while I put clear tape on top of the entire scalloped image. Voila! I added a couple of ribbons and rick rack and embellished them with a few mini-pony beads. The candy corn is a button that I purchased at Michael's; I cut the shank off of the back so I could use it as an embellishment. I glued it to the ribbon with fabric glue.
Happy Halloween Nic of StampWorks!! (the hardest working and nicest stamp store owner around!! ;)
