Thank you so much for all your comments yesterday.  Was so much fun  seeing all the wonderful ideas for Halloween.  For my project for Day 2 I used a tutorial for Test Tube holders  I got from Splitcoast Stampers.  
These are fun to make and you can make 3 from one piece of 12 x 12 paper.  Double sided paper is the best but if you don't have it you can cut a piece to cover the white part that shows.  These test tubes are from Martha Stewart and come 8 to a pack.  I got them on sale at Joanns.  You can also get test tubes at educational stores.  

The labels were in the Martha Stewart Package so I hand wrote on them.  If you buy them you can make labels on the computer.  Because I made these for my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers ) Group, that I mentor; I wanted it to be something fitting so I wrote Mom's Instant Energy on the tag.  I tied them with twine to the box and filled them with Fall M and M's.  
I am also entering this in the Cricut Circle Weekly challenge- Feeling Gifty Challenge 

Thank you again for checking out my project...  Now hop on over to  Lisa- and remember to visit all the stops for more chances to WIN!!

Below are links to BOTH days of the hop so you'll be sure not to miss a THING!!
