I love a well-coordinated party. I find it easy to pick a theme and decorate around it. Tonight is Halloween and while we don’t make a big fuss over it, we do try to celebrate a bit.
The kids are making costumes with whatever they can find, which is awesome because what they use can be reused, and it doesn’t break the bank. Those are the kinds of things you think of when you have a whole bunch of kiddos at home.
Remember when I found glow sticks SUPER cheap at Wal-Mart and bought a whole cart load? Naturally, we will be handing those out tonight. I didn’t feel like it was quite “enough” though, and I also didn’t want to add sugar to the treat bags (at least not this year, we have gone all out in years past).
So I got a little creative and designed water bottle labels and labeled a couple cases of water that I had on hand (leftover from a party).
I can’t say enough about how much I love the HP Instant Ink program for quick printing of full-color images at home, any time!
After I designed the label I printed it, cut it, and taped it onto 48 bottles. The whole process took about 30 minutes start to finish (not the designing, that took about 10 by itself).
If you’d like to make your own quick in between trick-or-treaters, or pin this to use next year, here’s the file:
Total Cost: About $7, including ink, paper, tape, and water bottles.
