Love Potion no. 9 Labels

Things around here are starting to get put back together and I am making progress on getting my new office organized and the old one cleaned up.  Our floors are in now and I can’t wait to share our progress with you.  We still have quite a bit of work to do as far as the baseboards, some painting and etc.

So I have not been crafting much.  But I did manage to make some fun printable Valentine’s Day Love Potion no. 9 Labels and/or tags.

These are a really simple addition to a cute bottle filled with candy or your favorite drink.

I burned the edges of this label and colored the label with a brown crayon very lightly but darker around the edges to make it look like aged paper.

Or you can cut around the edges of the label and then glue it onto your container…a plastic test tube in this case to make it like a sticky label.

And, because I like sharing, I have made it available for you to download for your own purposes if you would like.  I made them in brown or in white if you want to color them on your own.  If you would like a different size you can simply choose to print them out at greater than 100% to make them bigger or smaller than 100% if you need them smaller.

To make the labels for the test tube I printed them at 75% of the original size.  For the round glass container I printed them at 100%.

I shared with you the other day about one of my ideas being shared in the February issue of the Family Fun Magazine. Thanks for all your fun and kind comments. And now that the issues are in the store I can share with you exactly what it was…although MANY of you already figured it out ;)!

I was contacted back in September by one of the Family Fun editors asking if they could use my Candy Cane Heart Suckers in their 2011 Valentine’s Day issue. They had found my idea circulating the web. Pretty fun for me as I had been a big fan of their magazines for a few years now.

I thought I would share it with you just in case some of you don’t subscribe to Family Fun.

And if you would like to make some for Valentine’s Day, here are the directions.

Simply take two (per sucker) small candy canes and place them on a greased cookie sheet in a heart shape. Slide a sucker stick in between them like you see in the picture.

Place them in a heated 350 degree oven and watch them closely. After 3-5 minutes, they will be melty and bubbly. Quickly remove them from the oven and pinch the ends of the candy canes together at the top and bottom of each sucker. Be very careful as the candy will be HOT!

Then set the tray aside to cool. After they have cooled completely melt some white chocolate or almond bark in the microwave. Pour a small amount into the center of the suckers and smooth with your clean finger. I added a few colorful sprinkles as well. Let them cool again before packaging or better yet…Eating!
