HALLOWEEN ALTERED STARBUCKS FRAPPACINO

I've had this project in my head for weeks, and am so excited that I was finally able to put it together yesterday! It is an Altered Starbucks 4-pack Frappacino ... the kind you purchase at your local grocery store. Recipe and directions are given below the photos.


RECIPE
Stamps: Batty For You (pg. 27)
Paper: Creepy Crawly DP, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust & More Mustard CS
Ink: Versamark, Black Craft Ink
Embellishments: Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard & Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Really Rust Eyelets, Black Hemp Twine
Tools: Word Window Punch, 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Powder Pal
Other Supplies: Starbucks 4-pack Frappacino Bottles & Cardboard Carrier, Assorted Halloween/Autumn Candies, Stampin' Dimensionals or Foam Tape, Black Emboss Powder, Black Satin Spray Paint
NOTES:
* The lids to the bottles were painted with black satin spray paint.
* The Black Craft Ink Pad was used to ink up the edges of the cardboard carrier before adhering the CS.
* To cover the body of the cardboard carrier, cut 2 pieces of DP 4" x 10", scored at 2 1/2" and 7 1/2". I used Scotch double stick tape to adhere DP to cardboard carrier.
* To cover the middle handle section, cut one pieces of DP 4 1/4" x 5", scored at 2 1/8". For the oval shaped hole, I traced the hole with a pencil on the wrong side of the DP, and cut it out with scissors.
* There are two small triangle pieces on each side of the carrier. Again, I traced them onto the wrong side of the DP, and cut them out with scissors.
* The band going around the body of the carrier is the black spider web DP from Creepy Crawly and Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon.
* The images from Batty for You were stamped in Versamark onto Cardstock and embossed with Black Emboss Powder, then punched with the 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches.
* The words dangling from the center of the cardboard carrier were punched with the Word Window Punch from the Creepy Crawly DP (the one with all the Halloween-related words). Really Rust eyelets were added to the "tags", and hang with black hemp twine from the center black grosgrain ribbon.
* I chose not to decorate the glass portion of the bottles ... didn't want the CS or DP to "catch" and tear when removing and inserting the bottles into the carrier.

Here is another Altered Starbucks Frappacino gift set I did back in January for Valentine's Day.

I love it. makes me want to go out and just buy it so I can just have the bottles and the container. I don't drink coffee anymore so I would have to dump them out down the drain so i can do this project. this is a worth while project to do and give.

Nancy, my four year old saw these on the screen when I was looking at them and wanted to know if he could have some. I thought is was so cute I had to tell you. He couldn't understand why I wasn't able to reach through the screen and get it for him. Just wanted share. These are great!
