Thank You Easter Bunny

Shamrock Treat Bag


Did your little one just tell you that you need to make party favors for school on St Patricks day? No worries, Laura Kelly has you covered.

Cut a large shamrock out of dark green felt and a smaller shamrock out of light green felt. Laura used pinking shears to give her shamrock a decorative edge.

Sew buttons (or glue them) onto the light green felt and then glue the smaller shamrock onto the larger one.

Attach the finished shamrock to a ribbon or whatever you might have on hand and attach it to the treat bag.


Sweeten Up With Buttons This Valentines Day

Make someone you love feel special this Valentines Day!  Reuse some empty and clean jars as funky containers for goodies and gifts.

Using craft paints (I used Glass Gallery and Apple Barrel-both from Plaid), paint some hearts and polka dots onto the glass.

While the paint is drying (Gallery Glass takes a while), wrap some red and pink buttons up in wire to create handles for the jars.  A great place to buy buttons is Buttons Galore. When the paint is dry you can add another layer of paint decor then add red and pink buttons to the jars with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Let the jars dry completely before handling them to add the button wire.  Twist the wires around the jar rims in whatever way you like.  I made an extra one to decorate a wine bottle!

THEN, fill the jars up with candy goodies and you are all set to lay out a SWEET Valentine display of love!  Please share other ideas of things to put in the jars.  Sharing is a nice thing to do.
