{over the rainbow} st. patrick’s day fun & free printable!

Skittles are perfect for St. Patrick's Day...all those rainbow colors!  I paired them with one of my personal favorites, gold-wrapped Rolos for a super fun gift...for friends, neighbors, teachers, and more!  I also created a fun tag, and free printable, just for you!!!

I save all of my Crystal Light containers, which I LOVE to re-use for all sorts of gifting and organizational purposes.  I love the lids, how easy the wrappers are to take off, their size & shape, and that they are see-through!  If you don't have any, or want something smaller, try a jelly jar, other small mason jar, or a baby food jar/container.

I layered the candy starting with the Skittles first--in rainbow order--then added the Rolos on top.  I didn't put the Rolos on the bottom, because the Skittles fell through the larger holes and the presentation wasn't as nice.  I printed the printable, punched a hole in the corner, and tied it on my container with a piece of red gingham ribbon.  I cut pieces of ribbon to represent all the other rainbow colors, and tied them around the center knot of the red gingham.  I suggest using thinner ribbon if you're going to do this--you'll be able to add more ribbon and not have it be too bulky.

How FUN would this be for a teacher gift--not just now, but for the first of the year, or end of the year?  I thought it would be, so I included a gift tag for teachers too--you can download it below!

      Thank you so much, Emily! No, there isn’t a full page of the teacher one, but I can certainly add one! I’ll put it on my list. :)

  6. I love this printable and think it would be great for Back to School from the teacher. Would it be possible for you to edit it so that it says – I’m over the rainbow that I’m your teacher OR I’m over the rainbow that you’re in my class.

    Hi, do you have an editable file? I love the look of the printable but wanted to change the wordage.

  8. Love the printable “. . over the rainbow. . . ” except the yellow needs to be in a deeper shade or gold. It does not show up at all hardly except on white paper. Luv your column! :)

  9. What type of paper did you use to paste the printable on to?
