{kiss me, i’m irish}

I wanted to do something fun for a few ladies that I visit each month, and when I saw the green Hershey kisses at the store, I knew I had found just the thing.
I love having clear treat bags on hand. They are really inexpensive (you can get a pack of 20 for under $2 at Walmart), and are quite versatile. However, sometimes (like today) I find myself without any, so I always go to my backup--sandwich bags.

Just cut the zipper part of the top, and you're set!



Then I filled them with green Hershey kisses, and attached this cute tag:



If you'd like to use it too, just right click on the image below, and save image as. Then open a blank Word file (or similar), and insert it as a picture. Then you can re-size and print on cardstock! (fonts: century gothic, southern accent, and engravers mt)

.....


You can use any kind of fun packaging--I almost filled Mason pint jars with the kisses, and tied the tag around the mouth of the jar. I also like re-using sour cream containers, takeout containers, Crystal Light canisters, tin cans, cornmeal canisters (love the lids they use--easy to cover, and they're clear!), and even large baby food jars.

    So smart! Don't know why I never thought about cutting the top off a Zip Loc before! That could be a big money saver on a big project! Thanks for sharing!

    Just want to tell you that I absolutely love your blog. I am so glad I came across it. It is awesome. Although I am a photographer, I am an artist and crafter…I just don't get to do it that often. I also want to learn how to cook and bake. So glad to have another blogger buddy!
    Thank you so much,
