Pots of Gold at the End of the Rainbow ...

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."

The Rainbow Connection written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher

  1. How cute! I DO want to buy two of them, but do you think the licorice will still be fresh on St. Patrick's Day? These would be adorable for the leprechaun to leave for them under the trap.

  2. OMYGOSH!!! What a FABULOUS IDEA!! I loveeeeeeeeeeee it!!!!

  3. What a 'sweet' idea.

  4. So cute! I need some of your willpower though. I have 2 kids, only 1 would probably get a bag to share because I would eat the others lol.

  5. These are just too cute!

  8. These are so striking! You're so clever! I am a sucker for anything involving rainbows! I've never seen the twizzlers in any other colour than red- what flavours are the other ones??

  9. These are so cute! They'd be great favors for a rainbow party! :)
