Today's project was inspired by the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Ornate Labels" Metal Dies. As soon as I saw them, I thought they would make GREAT labels for a Halloween Bottle - whether altered, upcycled or 3D Papercrafted.
I used the Toil and Trouble SVG Kit from SVG Cuts to cut out the PURE POISON BOTTLE using Bazzill Bling Cardstock and papers from the My Mind's Eye Wicked Collection - I have no idea when this collection is from. I was unable to find it their site, but my local Michaels has the entire collection available, odd. If anyone knows, please let me know. - I cut it out at its originally size and measures about 5.25" tall without the Crystal Knob.
I'm actually suprised at how easy it was to put together - nothing went wrong, everything just fit together. I cut out the Lid's Liner from My Mind's Eye Patterned Paper and embossed two corner Spider Webs using the "Spider Web" Stamp from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set.
The green Crystal Handle is actually a Door Knob I found at the $1 section of my local Michaels. I tied some Black Tulle layered with Black Jute String - available at My Craft Spot - and centered with a small Pearl.
Around the Lid's rim, I added some Lace Ribbon which was distressed with some Black Ink to give it a worn and dirty look - but you can't really tell from these pictures. I also added some Silver Bow Wire I picked up from the Floral Department - I just LOVE the shiny bling-ish look it give the bottle.
As a finishing touch to the PURE POISON BOTTLE's Lid I added a glittered Black Spider from a Halloween Berry Pick I got from Michaels.
Some of My Craft Spot's "Smokey Black" Crinkle Ribbon around the bottle tied into a double bow layered with some more Bow Wire and an Echo Park Brad. I added two Maya Road Vintage Pearl Trinket Pins. To one of the pins I glued a small Banner made with the "Fishtail Banner" from the My Craft Spot "Tiny Banners & Toppers" Metal Dies stamped with the "Spells" Sentiment from JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Jar Full of Halloween" Stamp Set.
I found this amazing Skull Shaped Charm in the Jewlery Department at Michaels and knew it would make a great additional touch to my PURE POISON BOTTLE.
And lastly, I added the Main Focus of this project, the PURE POISON LABEL. I die cut the Small Label from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot Ornate Labels Metal Dies and stamped it with it's coordinating Ornate Label Stamp from the JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot "Ornate Labels" Stamp Set. Here is a FUN trick using the NEW JUST RELEASED My Craft Spot Ornate Labels Metal Dies - the Ornate Label Dies ONLY cut out the portion you see stamped with its coordinating stamp set. To achieve a matted Ornate Lable look, like the one I have here, I simply traced the Metal Die on my desired Cardstock and gave it a quick fuzzy cut with my sharp scissors.
The PURE POISON BOTTLE opens up to reveal a nice space for a goodie bag or some other fun gift. Unfortunately, I focused on the embellishing and completely forgot to get something to fill it with.
I hope you have enjoyed my PURE POISON BOTTLE!
