'Halloween-y' soap



Ok..so remember the post "squ'eek'y clean"?  I was really happy with how cute it turned out - UNTIL I saw Gluesticks post on personalized soap/sanitizer bottles.  Brandy was inspired by a post from The Idea Room.  

It's basically a clear bottle (for soap or sanitizer) and transparency film.
I actually used clear window decals (from Staples).  


The fun part is deciding what wording/font to use.  The Idea Room has a template you can download.  I thought it would be fun to create a Halloween-y one :)
Here's a close up of what I came up with (created it all on Microsoft Word).



I trimmed it to fit my bottle.  I'm not a big fan of measuring...so I kinda just eyeballed it.  I ended up cutting 'happy halloween' off the top :)  Since I used a window cling, I just stuck it to the outside of the bottle.  My inspiration posts actually slipped the transparency paper inside the bottle.  I was afraid the ink would run (and/or I wouldn't be able to get it straight) so I just kept it on the outside.



Pair with the 'eek' and they make quite the scary duo.

ignore the tiny bubbles...they make me happy :)


I have plans to make a few of these as gifts.  
You can find soap, sanitizer and lotions all in the same size bottles...I thought it would be fun to do a soap/sanitizer set or soap/lotion set  - you get the idea.  
Since you can personalize this...the possibilities really are endless.

Oh my gracious! I totally love it! This is awesome for goobers like me who don't own a Cricut! I didn't even think about clear window decal whatever you call it. I am so gonna do this. I just gotta make a trip to Staples sometime. Where in staples are they?

I LOVE it! I have never heard of clear window decals but it sounds perfect for a couple projects I've been trying to figure out how to make happen. And now I might add this one to the list too. Thanks for linking up to Get your Halloween ON.
