Test Tube Trio Treats

Hi friends,
Today I have this Test Tube Trio Treat Box (say that 3 times fast ;) to share with ya today. I luuuv the goo punch (from Martha Stewart)! It's just perfect for this kind of project :) Actually, I used a lot of MS products on this. I created the box following the uber fab Lisa Somerville's template---> (adjusting it for 3 tubes). I bought the tubes from "Uncle Mike's" & cleaned him out! I like to hoard! Don't hate me for that! (Wait, let me make sure I spelled that right- yes, hoard) Tee Hee! I'm sure they'll get more in. I like these because they're a great size, they're hard plastic (sturdy, but not breakable), they come in an 8 pack, & I like the cork top! I couldn't think of a better way to use my coupons :) I filled them with coordinating Halloween M&Ms. It didn't take too many. I don't know what to do with ALL the extra?? ;) I guess I'll have to dispose of them... down my esophagus!

Edited to Add: To answer Karen's question on how to make the gooey circle around the tubes... I just punched out a circle & put it in the punch & simply punched & rotated it until I had done that all the way around. It won't look exactly drippy, but it looks pretty good, ay!

Thanks so much for peeking at my gooey creation. I've got loads of projects brewing in my mind & I don't know where to start! I know, tragic--->Gotta go, but have a fabulous Labor Day Weekend! (US)

  7. Oh Karli, you've got me laughing out loud again! BTW, your project is super cute too.

  8. I love your test tube box. One question though, how did you do the oozing goo on the top where the test tubes go in the holes? I'm going to have to go get the MS punch. I looked at it the other day and decided I might not use it enough, so I didn't get it.
