Whimsy and Stars Treats

I've finally opened up the MS test tubes I bought last fall. They are so cute and fun to use. I've filled them with some candy corn flavored M & Ms, yummy!

I found several tutorials on line to make holders , this one comes from Lisa Somerville's blog. She has several different tutorials for holding one, two or three tubes. Very easy to follow.

Here is the front view, it is free standing. I was wondering if it would really stay upright, and it does.

I've used the adorable little witch image called Halloween Girl from Whimsy and Stars to decorate the front. Mabelle has lots of sweet fall and Halloween images in the store right now. I think this will go to one of the teachers at preschool. Here is a close up of this super sweet, not very scary witch.

Such a darling halloween project and I love the design with the button, bow and colour combo too. Thanks for linking up at Dutch Dare Card Challenge. Unfortunately we have a limit of 8 challenges combined incl ours, so it won't be in the run for a prize. Such tough luck, cause the project is gorgeous. Please come back thursday for a new challenge.
