Growing up in Hawai’i, we didn’t really celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  It wasn’t a big deal like it is in some places on the Mainland.

And I’ve never really celebrated it with my kids.  But this year, I plan on surprising them (mama’s gotta get a surprise in when she can!)

 I found these cute little green buckets.

Grabbed the label punch and a small heart punch,
 
heart punch on green paper
label punch on white paper
 
and whipped up some cute tags.
 
labels with 4 leaf clovers on them and text reading Happy St. Patty's Day
 

In about 10 minutes (6 of those minutes spent collecting the supplies from around the house) I created a little leprechaun magic by making a Bucket o’ Gold Candy.

 

With a little luck (I need luck to outsmart 3 observant kids!) I’m looking forward to a St. Patrick’s Day morning surprise at my house.

    1. Thanks, Sylvia. Found them new with tags at local thrift shop. I went back 2 days later to buy more and they were all gone (at least 30 of them!)

  2. Susan this is adorable! I have a similar heart punch and it never occurred to me to use it to make shamrocks. Thanks for the inspiration.
