DIY Clover Mints and Free Printable

This project has to be one of my favorites in a long time. It was one of those things where almost everything came together as I planned it. Also- I did it over a period of days and didn’t feel to stressed about it. In this era of home-buying-madness, there is little that I don’t feel stressed about.

I have seen several versions of these Rainbow Candy Jars on the web, so I had to make one of my own.   This obviously would be great for St. Patrick’s Day, but they would also be a fun “add on” for a kiddo’s birthday gift or even a teacher appreciation gift.

I have to give you this disclosure upfront:  I am only responsible for half of this post. As much as I like to loom scarves and hats and boot cuffs, I have never grabbed a rainbow loom and made a bracelet.

Remember when I said I was posting Mexican food today? Yeah, just in case you couldn’t tell from the title, this isn’t Mexican food. It’s Friday. I’m tired. It’s been a long week filled with those “Aw, crap, I’m a grown-up now” moments (believe me, when I was 18 and told my parents I couldn’t wait to move out, applying for a new sewer tap was not #1 on my list of things I envisioned myself doing). I am highly motivated by sugar, cuteness, and easy food-related crafts and de-motivated by marinating pork loins and cutting up whole pineapples. I’m a promise-breaker, what can I say?

If you are planning a dinner or event (or wedding?) to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and find yourself in need of some table decorations or place cards, then you’re going to love this quick idea. We had some mini cauldron candy kettles left over from the St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun game that Jo came up with last year, and I realized they were the perfect size to put next to each place setting on a table.

The bracelets were simple, too.  I purchased letter beads and multi-colored beads at our local Hobby Lobby during a 50% off sale. I already had the ‘Stretch Magic bead and jewelry cord’ and a needle with a large enough hole to string the elastic.  The elastic cord I had was 5mm.  Pretty sure I saw similar stuff at Wal-Mart.

St. Paddy’s Day Pinch-Free Card 

Patrick’s Day very serious…if you weren’t wearing green, you were definitely going to be pinched. And I’m not talking about a sweet little squeeze. Oh no no no, if you couldn’t prove that your underwear had green on them like you insisted, you were getting an honest-to-goodness full-on pinch. Ouch!
