Eyes of Newt Clip-Art Favor Boxes
Send your guests home at the end of the night with these newt-eye favors, which taste strangely like jelly beans. The green goodies are packed in painted wooden boxes topped with clip-art labels.
Mix green acrylic paint with water to thin it.
Use a sponge brush to paint round wooden boxes. Let dry.
Download the labels and print onto plain paper or tea-dyed paper (directions in step 4) for an aged effect; cut out. Glue to box tops with glue stick.
Tea dyeing: If desired, take this extra step to make these labels look authentically old: Brew strong black tea; let cool. Pour it into a plastic bin. Soak uncoated 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper in the tea for 1 to 2 hours. Remove it, and let dry completely on paper towels. Print directly onto the dyed paper.
