Germs Are Scary Halloween Treats: Mini Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer Holders

(click on image to enlarge)

I hope you all had a fun Halloween!  With the baby being so young and with my teenager no longer so thrilled with the thought of going out trick-or-treating, we decided to stay in and pass out candy this year.  I wish we had a lot more kids come by.  It's always so fun to see the little kids dressed up.  

Every year, I like to send my teenager to school with some goodies for her friends.  This year, we decided on making mini antibacterial hand sanitizer holders.  I made some as party favors back in May, and they were well-received.  For Halloween, I volunteered to make some for two of my nieces to take to school also, so I ended up having to make 36 altogether.


We got a bunch of these cute Halloween-themed mini antibacterial hand sanitizers.  This was the only style they had left.  We should have bought some sooner!  I'll definitely be buying a bunch of these in SEPTEMBER next year instead of waiting until October!

I used a cut file I created in MTC to cut the holders out.  I embellished with various Halloween paper and Halloween stickers that I had in my stash.  I saw a similar project on another blog where the blogger printed labels with the sentiment "Germs Are Scary".  I loved the idea and borrowed it for this project.  Unfortunately, I don't remember which blog it was on.  :(




I further embellished with different colored twine from the Twinery.  I used black/white, purple/white, green/white, orange/white, and yellow/white combos.  It's a good thing I have a variety of colors to choose from.  I then added a tag cut from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge.  The To/From stamp is from a Halloween set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I think these Halloween treats turned out pretty cute! My nieces loved them and so did my daughter's friends.  Thanks for looking and have a great Thursday!
