Pot O Gold Gifts and Tags

This next project was completely inspired by this adorable St. Patrick’s Day idea from It Is What It Is. I actually made Beth’s cute project last year for my kiddos, and they loved it. I decided this year I would do something similar and just bend the licorice and make a cute printable to go with. Obviously, not original at all but different than what I did last year. Then, to my surprise I saw something super similar on Pinterest on Sunday. I had already made the printable and had everything printed and ready to go, but decided I’d still post it any way.

Which makes me wonder, has that happened to you? You think you’re doing something a little original and find out it’s already been done. I did this last year for my Patriotic Poke Cake thinking I was so clever just to find out it’s been done a gazillion times already – LOL!

Any who, this year I’ll be making these Pot O Gold Gifts and Tags for the kids, and maybe even for the hubby. :D

This is how it turned out:

{Please don’t mind that my brain was fried and when I first made the print I put on there “TO MY” twice… it has since been fixed below} :)

These were super easy to make and are cute for little gifts or party favors for your upcoming St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

Here is how you can make them too:


– Bags (I bought mine from Hobby Lobby in the jewelry section)

– Prints (available for download below)

– Rainbow Licorice

– Gold Coins or Rolos

– Glue Stick

– Scissors/Paper Cutter


St. Patrick's Day - Pot O Gold Print

1. Begin by downloading the tag. To do this, click on the image above, and then right-click and save. Then you can open it a document like work and re-size to what you need. Right now, it should be the size needed to make with the jewelry bags from Hobby Lobby.

2. Cut out your print with scissors or a paper cutter. You will also want to bend your licorice and put them in your bag along with your gold coins or rolos. Getting all 6 colors in was a tight fit so you may want to just put 5 in.

3. Fold your print in half and then glue to the top of your bag on both sides.

Pretty, easy and pretty cute, right?!

My kids LOVED the fun colors involved with this little gift and decided they want to make some for all the cousins… not sure if that will happen just yet, but it’s the thought that counts, right? ;)
