A Treat That Does The Trick!

Need a quick, last minute non-candy TREAT idea for Halloween? 
These "Drink Collars" will do the TRICK!

What's even better is that you can make them as simple or as elaborate as you'd like!
I started with a beautiful array of Sugar-Coated Cardstock and cut them into 3"X6" strips.
I scored at 4" and used a 1.5" circle punch to create a hole inside of the 2" flap:

Next I selected a few of the patterned papers and 2X2 cut apart cards from the 
"Candy Carnival" Collection.  Before attaching with foam and adhesive tapes, I 
corner rounded just the bottom two edges of the mat paper and 2X2 cards:

For the straw hanger I die cut a 2" circle and then punched two holes at
along the middle top and bottom with a regular hole punch. The circle was attached
to the back of the sugar coated cardstock with adhesive tape and secured
even further with two assorted brads:




I gently pushed through a paper straw and embellished with a tiny stamped tag.




For smaller bottled drinks, just use a different sized hole punch.  An after-thought: 
use Doodlebug stamps to create little "to-be-colored" tags too!

With other holidays around the corner, keep this design in mind for teacher gift,
class parties and open houses!
Thanks for joining me!
