leprechaun gold straws

this is how my brain's been lately:
i just can't seem to get a grip on stuff and 
my mind's all over the place.
i think it's dumb hormones but 
i will combat this by making a simple 
st. patty's day craft using this:
i got the cupcake kit from marshall's
and the gold straws from paper source 
that you can get here.
this is from target this past christmas
but you can use any ole gold washi tape.

here's the cupcake kit up close:

i adore meri meri stuff.
it always makes me so merry merry :)

anyway, all you have to do is mix and match the supplies above to get your st. patty's day holiday straws.

just hold the topper to the straw,
leaving room to sip the straw on top
and tape away.
for the next kind of topper you will need to do this:
that way the topper will sit right to the straw.
these little guys are even printed on the back.
love it :)

so make a bunch and be leprechaun lucky.
using these toppers for straws instead 
of cupcakes saves on the calorie count.
unless you use them for a high calorie shamrock shake with whipped topping and sprinkles and a green cookie next to it...


  1. Sure and begorin' your a smart lass! You find the neatest stuff!! You could have stopped at saving calories without mentioning the milkshake!! I love the mint shakes!! But I'll pass this year! Lost six pounds the first week and never felt hungry. Not even for a mint shake! But I BBFF can never do wrong on her diet of high creativity!!

    1. wowza! no cravings not even for a mint shake?! why i think you hit gold with your diet Dona! my BBFF is luckier than a leprechaun! :>D
