It’s all part of this month’s Crafty Hangouts series of live crafting videos, sponsored by OnlineLabels.com.

If you think office supplies and parties don’t go hand-in-hand, then you need to check out all the amazing labels available from Online Labels. You’ll find all kinds of shapes, sizes and colors of labels for shipping, printing, packaging, branding and crafting. Even labels for sno-cone syrup bottles!

Our group of crafty bloggers has come up with 20 different ideas for how to use labels at parties. You can find all the tutorials at Crafty Hangouts, or watch the live crafting videos on this YouTube playlist.

And don’t forget to check out the end of this post for a great giveaway to Target from this month’s sponsor.

Online Labels has a free tool that you can use to design and print your labels. But for my project, I decided to break out some of my rubber stamps and ink.

See how I did it here:

I used these cigar band-style soap labels in a white glossy finish for my sno-cone bottles.

Other supplies I used for this craft:

And now for the recipe…

Homemade Snow Cone Syrup

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  1. In a saucepan, combine the water and sugar.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes.

  4. Allow to cool.

As you can see, we made up several batches of sno-cone syrup: Tropical Punch, Strawberry, Cherry, Orange and Green Apple.

We went a birthday party over the weekend, and we we gave Jackson’s little friend his own sno-cone maker, some straws and sno-cone cups, plus an assortment of homemade syrups.

      Thanks so much! Let me know how your snow cones turn out. And BTW, if you don’t have a sno-cone maker, just throw some crushed ice into a blender, food processor or magic bullet and it will get all snowy.

  3. Genius idea, love it! sooooo cute!
