This is a project from last year, but I thought I'd share it given Halloween is just around the corner. It seems fitting that Halloween is synonymous with candy (or in my case, bubblegum). I hosted a party back East for my parents. There really wasn't a theme for the party -- it was just an excuse for old friends to gather together and eat (a lot) of food. Considering my parents and practically 99.9% of their friends don't go trick or treating on Halloween night I figured it would be a nice touch to surprise all the guests with a trick or treat party favor.
I wanted to give them something practical and since we're Asian, I decided to go with these wicked cute mini teapots which can double as soy sauce holders (or cream or oil or vinegar), but I like to call them soy sauce teapots. Aren't they cute?

I made a tag using my awesome Sizzix Big Shot machine, added some cute Halloween stickers I picked up at a scrapbook show, added some baker's twine and voila! They look like little teabag tags hanging off the side. The ribbon was an extra bonus to add color to the overall display. The back of the tags read "Happy Halloween! Thanks for coming."

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
