Brynn's 11th Birthday Continued

So I've still been working on favors for Brynn's party. Being that she's new to her school this year, I want to be sure that her party is a blast for all who attend. So in this post I've added decorated water bottles for both the kids & adults, treat bags, & "bat droppings".
The treat bags are simple craft bags that I purchased at my local Hobby Lobby ($2.99 for a pack of 12). I embellished the bags using 4 inch rectangles (lime green, orange & dark purple) I cut using my Cricut. After I adhered the rectangles to the bags with my Stampin' Up glue stick, I adhered pre-stamped images to the rectangles. My Pre-stamped images are all part of the Stampin' Up Halloween stamps. The sets I used were: Sweet Centers, Halloween Frights, Graveyard Gala, & House of Haunts.
The treat bags will be empty & used for the kids to gather up one of each treat from the favor table.
The "Bat Droppings" are super easy: long skinny clear Wilton 'pretzel bags' filled with Cocoa Puffs and trimmed at top. I printed out "Bat Droppings" on my computer & hand cut them into small rectangles & then simply taped them over the middle of each bag. This was definitely the easiest favor of all the ones I did. The water bottles were easy, but time consuming. I removed the original labels and used those as a reference when measuring the purple, orange, green & black & white paper I used. I then cut 3 inch circles with my Cricut using orange & green cardstock & 2 inch capital B using dark purple cardstock. Once I replaced all the labels with the colored paper, I adhered the Bs to the circles & the circles to the bottles. Easy, just time consuming.
