We’re at it again! A few of my friends and I have another Dollar Bin Challenge and this time we purchased these glass test tubes at Michaels Arts & Crafts for $1.50 each. There were two different kinds of test tubes that we could choose from – one with a cork stopper and one with a screw on top, I choose the latter . I thought it would be fun to fill them with candy for my daughter to give to her best friends. I know they’re glass and probably not for kids, but I did drop them once or twice while at Michaels Arts & Crafts and they didn’t break, so I assume they’ll be okay for just a few kids!
I folded a piece of tissue paper in half, then in half, than in half… until it was just a bit bigger than the die. Just one swipe through the Big Shot and I had enough tissue paper hearts to cover 10+ test tubes.
Then I applied the hearts to the outside of the test tubes with Mod Podge, in no particular pattern.
Remember that the tissue paper is very delicate, so be sure to gently place them on the glass.
Lastly, I tied ribbon around the top just to add a little bit of extra pretty to it.
Now you can fill them with yummy candy! The opening was too small for conversation hearts, so I used M&Ms instead. You could probably use red hots, or maybe even jelly beans.
