Potion Bottles

What a project! I've been working on my Potion Bottles for 2 days! I hope you enjoy them! April came over last night and made some for herself, too. It was a lot of fun!
I'm giving some to E's teachers, and some to a couple friends.
I've filled them with Russian instant tea. I'm not sure if this is a "true" Russian recipe, but I found it online, and it looked like fun. It is not the most gourmet tasting stuff on the planet (not exactly fine British tea), but it sure is fun. I think kids would like it. It looks pretty in the bottle. I had to make 2 batches to fill 8 bottles.
These potion bottles are actually plastic, even though they look like glass. So they will be easy to mail. There were 3 for $5 plus shipping from Taylored Expressions. I love that place!


Stamp Set: Punchy Potions from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Black, Confetti white, and DSP from Taylored Expressions on bottle; elegant eggplant, black, white, and Taylored Expressions DSP on recipe card. DSP for spiders is sei.
