Wicked Cool Owl hand sanitizer holder

Well, Erica Cerwin certainly started a rage when she created her little container to hold the Halloween Hand Sanitizers from Bath & Body Works!  When I saw her project, I immediately ran out and bought up a bunch of the little bottles.  They were almost sold out in all the stores around me, but I've heard they do have them back in stock.


Here is the front of the one I created with some punch art.  I've done this project with a Shoebox for our demonstrator meeting and my Stamp Clubs did it this month!  It was a hit at all!  I think everyone LOVES this Two Step Owl Punch!  

I started by creating the box with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  Then I stamped the bats from Wicked Cool diagonally across the front of Basic Gray layer…I also stamped them diagonally across the back of the Pumpkin Pie holder (not shown).  I punched the moon with the 2 1/2 Circle Punch from So Saffron and used a sponge dauber along the edges with Tangerine Tango Ink.  The Owl silhouette was punched from Basic Black, along with the branch from the Two Step Bird Punch.  I stamped Spooky on Pumpkin Pie cardstock with Basic Black ink and punched with the Large Oval Punch.  I have a Mini Library Clip "holding" it (I really adhered it so it wasn't lost.)


Inside I stamped the Spider Web several times and the greeting "have a WICKED halloween" in Basic Black.  I stamped the Witch hat and legs in Basic Black on scrap Whisper White, cut them out and used Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight markers to color in the hat band and leggings.  I thought the witch's legs turned upside down into the box was funny!  lol!  The hat is adhered next to the greeting.  Inside is the hand sanitizer bottle…Bat Bite was my flavor…love that green color!


I had so much fun creating this…I plan to make several more for a craft fair I'm doing!
