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!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
