Happy St. Patrick's Day-It's a Candy Card and a Sweet Hershey & KitKat Treat for your Special People!

Happy St.Patrick's Day to you! Here's a fun way to wish others a Happy St. Patrick's day and in a "sweet" way.  Don't just give a card this year.....Give something that is a card AND a treat to your favorite people.  Inside this decorated wrap is a Hershey chocolate bar. (regular size) and who doesn't like chocolate? We call it a "Candy Card"

They would be a "Sweet" party favor for your St. Patrick's Day celebration  and the kid's  classroom party favors/treats!

Our wraps come in two versions.  This one is the gingham version and below is the plaid version.  You can get an order in one version or you can get half and half-it's completely up to you.

Which version do you like the best? 

DEALS ON HERSHEY BARS:  You can buy a package of 36 Hershey bars (1.55 oz size) at Sam's Club for only $20. They are priced around that at Costco too. So the bars end up being about 58 cents a piece which is something that won't break the bank! 

 The "Happy St. Patrick's Day tag is adhered to the plaid piece using a foam dot and then the entire piece is just glued to the front of the wrap. Everything is cut out of premium cardstock. 

The leprechauns hat is designed, cut out and assembled by us. Even the shamrock with the brad center is included.  All you have to do is attach the hat to the wrap with the foam dot that is provided. How easy is that! Definitely a unique item your friends, co-workers, employees, teachers and family have never seen or received.

 I can just see the faces of your employees, co-workers, family and friends (and don't forget teachers) when they receive this fun St. Patrick's Day gift from you.  Be sure to order early!  If you wait you may have to spend more on shipping because now you now need  it sent by priority mail.  If you don't see the kit size you need just message us and we'll take care of it of you. 

And we couldn't leave out the KitKat candy bar lovers!  Same design, different candy bar. You can find both these "Candy Card" kits in our Etsy shop. Link below

Tutorial for St. Patrick's Day Garland / Banner-Super Simple!

St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, and time to think about decorations.
  This St. Patrick's Day banner is sooooo simple to put together.  The hardest thing
 might be choosing the colors to make it out of! As it says above, banners aren't 
meant just to hang on the wall.  Use it in other ways, perhaps draping around 
some of your other decor.  Hang it on the wall vertically or horizontally.

Choose at least 2 different colors for your banner. You can use as many as you like though. 
 We used 4 different pieces of cardstock....light green, dark green, gold, and one with
 a design. Be sure to select colors that compliment one another. A good Irish red 
would have been fun to add into my banner. 

After cutting out your shamrocks,  put them in pairs. Then place your shamrock pairs
 in the order that you want them to appear in the banner. Then you can start sewing. 

We are offering the SHAMROCKS to make this banner in our 
Etsy shop...... Just in case you don't want to cut them out 
yourself ......  Click HERE

Use a scrap piece of cardstock to sew lines until you get the stitch to look the way
 you want....not too tight, not too loose. I have a Bernina sewing machine and the
 straight stitch length is set on 2.  The zigzag stitch length is set at 0. Now stitch down
 through the middle of each shamrock and through the stem. I always let the machine
 run for 5 to 8 stitches in-between each piece. This will provide a little space between
 the shamrock.  Be sure to use a thread color that matches your 
main colors.  We used green here. 

Here is the beginning of our banner, three shamrocks down 15 more to go.

The length of this stitch is good. As I said before, not too tight, not too loose. 
Our shamrocks measured 2.5" wide and 3" tall.

You could also make your banner one dimensional  by sewing just one
 shamrock at a time instead of putting 2 shamrocks together.
  It would basically look like this photo. 

Scatter the shamrocks down the center of your buffet or dining table
Put the shamrocks on a skewer or a lollipop stick and top your cupcakes
Use them as a food pick for breads, desserts etc
Put them on the front of a treat bag
Hang the banner vertically instead of horizontally
Pin the shamrocks on the kids so they don't get pinched on St. Patrick's Day
Include them on your St. Patrick's Day wreath
Write notes to the kids on them and put in their lunchbox

Now all that's left to do is fold each shamrock in towards itself. 
 The stitching line makes it easy to bend.  Now just hang your wall quote
 on the wall, the fireplace mantel or around your other decorations. 
This one can also be hung horizontally as we faced the shamrocks going
 all the same way. Have fun making one for yourself! 

We have some really cute St Patrick's Day printables and Candy Card kits that 
would be perfect for your St. Patrick's Day celebration in our Etsy shop.
  Click HERE to see everything in our Etsy shop  INCLUDING a kit for
 all the cut out shamrocks you would need for this banner.

LOTS of Valentine's Day Treats and Gift Ideas and a Heart Banner-Gotta See!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Are you ready to see our NEWEST Valentine's Day designs?  Well, let's get to it!  
All our holiday kits are easy to assemble. Some kits have pieces
 already assembled for you. Easy instructions and
 a kit photo are always include to refer to.  
Beginning Makers and Expert Makers are welcome! 

We just finished this design yesterday. The hardest thing about it was matching
 the colors for each piece. I am very particular about what colors we put together
 in our kits. This one looks like a present and has a Valentine's Day theme.  
It's all wrapped up in a regular size Hershey candy bar which is a  
perfect treat/gift to take to the office for your coworkers or employees. 
You can pick the traditional tag that says "Happy Valentine's Day" or the 
"You're Awesome " tag or a mix of both tags

Our Valentine's Day Kiss stickers got a new look this year. 
We opted for more  intense colors for the sticker.  Each sticker sheet has 80 stickers.
  8 of each of the    10 different design. Place them out on your favorite Valentine 
       treat bow or include  in some of the Valentine treat boxes you see below. 

These two design go hand in hand. The treat box tag say 
 "A treat for someone sweet"  So naturally you fill the included cellophane bag
 with Hershey Kisses with our Kiss stickers on the bottom Lots of fun 
Valentine messages! 
(they add a lot to the chocolate kisses) 

Another fun way to tell your family, friends, coworkers, employees, volunteers
 and others "You're Awesome, thanks for all you do" One of our easiest kits. 
Just glue the wrap, the message on the front and add the glitter bow and 
you've got something special for your special people!

If it is a cute little treat box you need for your Valentine's Day dinner or buffet 
then this is the perfect one.  The box measures 4" tall, 2.5" wide and 2" deep 
and will hold up 15-18 Hershey kisses but you can put your favorite treat inside.
 The crinkle paper is optional and not included nor is the candy. Once again, 
very simple to put together with easy instructions. Would also be a sweet treat
 to take to the school or the kid's classmates. There is even a rectangular tag on the
 back that we will personalize with someones name.

This is my new favorite candy card. Instead of a Hershey chocolate bar
 you fill the provided cellophane bag with your favorite treats and insert in the bag. 
We'll even personalize the round tag that is tied around the treat bag for you.
 It measures 6:" tall and just takes glue to assemble. We'll provide everything else
 including foam dots and the cute puffy hearts on front.

For a smaller treat and a fun gift we've assembled this treat bag that you can
 fill with other sweets beside Hershey Kisses.  The hearts on the front are cut
 out of the cardstock. Then all you do is assemble the scalloped pieces above. 
(glue (not included) and  foam dots (which is provided) 
Choose your favorite Valentine message for the round tag.

Sweets are great but what if you want to give a gift card out this Valentine's Day?
 Well, we've got you covered.  This unique gift card holder features a heart on
 each one that was designed and assembled by us. Each one is unique and different 
from the others and can have 4 to 5 different pieces of cardstock
adhered to the heart shape and then a cute little paper bow.
 The gift card is inserted in the back of the card.

This kit isn't brand new but still a popular one in our Etsy shop. Choose the polkadot
 wrap or the check wrap or get half of each.  The upper heart is cut out of thicker 
holographic cardstock. When assembled insert a 1.55 oz (regular size) 
solid chocolate Hershey bar. You can get great deals on boxes of 36
 at Sams, Sam's on line, Costco and

Here's the same design for the people who love RED for Valentine's Day. 
Once again you can choose the "love" paper of the check paper. 
We supply everything but the glue and the chocolate bar.

This design got a facelift too.  Paper is full of paste hearts an zigzag stitching 
with circles, scallops and another heart on top. 
Just glue and adhere with foam dots….you've got this! 

Our "framed" heart piece is cut out of cardstock that matches the
 candy bar wrap which has lots of different Valentine words on it in the 
lighter pink. We assemble this piece for you. Then you just adhere
 the tag with a foam dot and tie the red twine on it.  Can't get any easier than that,
 but how impressive it will be to the people you give them to.
  Did I mention that any of our candy cards and treat boxes make 
GREAT Party Favors?

And now you're wondering if we have MORE Valentine's day kits?
