Class Treats for St. Patricks Day!

Hello all.  Sorry I have been MIA, it has been busy around here.

So I am going to my 8 year olds class today as a mystery reader (he has NO idea I am coming :)).  Since I chose a couple of St. Patricks Day themed books I also wanted to bring a treat but like usual waited until the last minute :)  While I was driving I remember I had two unopened bag of M&M's.  One from Christmas and one from Valentine's Day.  I knew I could pull out the greens from Christmas and the whites from Valentine's and do M&M sticks!

Here they are:



I decided to go with an easier topper and did a shamrock from Art Philosophy (it was on a tag so I did hide contour for the tag parts) and then I did a flip on one and welded the two together to make it a topper.  It worked perfect.  I also had a cute cheapy little $1 stamp from AC Moore that said Happy St. Patricks day.  It was PERFECT!  I hope the kids will love them!  Now I have to keep myself from eating the leftover pink and red M&M's!

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty day.
