Around St. Patrick's Day last year, my friend was at a convenience store and spotted these goodies sitting on the counter for sale. She told me how irresistibly cute they were, and insisted that the following year we would have to make our own.
Well, with St. Patrick's Day once again on the horizon, the time had finally arrived to make these fun treat bags. We purchased rainbow Twizzlers, Rolos, and cellophane bags. I already had sparkly gold ribbon, and I also downloaded and printed these super cute tags from Amy of Living Locurto, for free! Thank you Amy!
Lastly I spread everything out on the table and got to work assembling them, without eating one piece of candy myself. Now that was quite the feat! Here are the finished results!
If you'd like a bag or more for yourself, but don't have the time to buy all the materials and put them together, I have them available to purchase in my Etsy shop --> PapercrushCrafts, and on Ebay as well.
"Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me."
