St. Patrick's Day Chocolate

After what has felt like a very long winter, yesterday was sunny and even spring-like here. And suddenly I felt like doing a little mini-Spring Cleaning. My husband did, too, and since he was home and cleaning with me, I decided stamping could wait until today.
My mom always made each of the holidays really fun for me and my brothers, and St. Patrick's Day was one of my favorites because she'd make green food! Here are some little treat bags I made for St. Patrick's Day. I had read that Avery mailing labels would wrap perfectly around Hershey's Nugget candies, but this was my first time to try it. It worked like a charm! It was such an easy way to add a little fun to the chocolate.

Stamps: Studio G
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Ripe Avocado
Accesories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities

Darling! I love the idea of using mailing labels, I'll have to try that next time. So much easier than trying to tape the paper on!
