I can hardly believe that we are now in September, this year has absolutely whizzed by. Today’s project doesn’t help either as I’m sharing the first of my Gecko Galz projects for this month the majority of which have a Halloween theme! This month’s customer challenge, when you have the chance to win a $25 shopping spree, is “Tricks and Treats.”

Here’s what I made:


These definitely fall into the trick category don’t you think? All the label images come from this month’s Arsenic and Lace kit.


The bottles were cut from chipboard using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bigz Alterations die – Apothecary Bottles. I painted them with Dylusions paints and then grunged them up a bit with distress inks.


I added a skull charm and matching jewel to each one.


This black cat label should in fact be a green/grey colour but, quite by chance, my printer was running out of ink and it came out purple instead. I distressed all the labels with scrunching and Walnut Stain distress ink.


I thought these wold look great hanging from a tree so I’ve added some loops to the back.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. What a great project, the brass skull charms are brilliant and the bottle are just fab – the colours are amazing, and I love all of the little labels.
