Hunting Unicorns and all I got was Unicorn Poop ~ WCLBH 2016 ~ project #3

Hello Dreamerz

I am bringing you my 3rd entry for the 

Well as the title of the post says 
"Hunting Unicorns and all I got was Unicorn Poop"
I like to have extra fun little gifts to hand out around the holidays to people who come over and I did not expect them, Leonard our USPS carrier, the little girl next door who thinks I really do have a pet Unicorn, and pretty much everyone else I may have forgotten in my mad rush to get everything done.

I like those little bottles of Starbucks Dark Peppermint Mocha that you can only find around the holidays, and instead of tossing the bottles this year I decided to upcycle them into gifts.

Drink copious amounts of Starbucks Dark Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino!
Peel labels and use acetone on cotton ball to remove any sticky residue, wash then sterilize bottles and caps to make sure they are super clean.
Fill empty bottles with your favorite Unicorn poop (I used skittles)
I used my Cricut Explore Air to add my own text using the write feature so it looks nice and hand printed, then I attached it to a tag and created a 2nd layer to use behind to add a fun whimsical touch.
I added trendy tape around the edges of the top tag and used Sparkle and Sprinkle Cloud Nine microfine glitter to give the tag some sparkle.
Next I took the Unicorn from Sweet Stamp Shop's Just Icons set (Sorry Dreamers this set is retired) and stamped the Unicorn with versafine black ink. I then used some basic copics to color the unicorn in and then used coordinating wink of stella brush glitter pens to give the unicorn shimmer.
for the back layer of the tag I randomly colored in the heart paper with copics
Added rhinestones for some extra bling and finished the tag off with elastic silver cording tied around the cap.  A strip of silver washi tape was applied around the bottle so it does not look so plain.

Thank you for dropping by and having a look.
