Admission: I have had some Tic Tacs in my pantry for a couple of months. I had big plans for them. Oh I had plans. But you know things like sleep got in the way so they were still sitting there glancing meaningfully at me every time I would open the pantry door. Saint Patrick’s Day turned out to really be lucky for these little green Tic Tacs though, because they finally found their way into a project… and I really love it! Definitely worth the wait!
So what used to be green Tic Tacs have now transformed into a sweet Saint Patrick’s Day treat! One package of No Pinch Pills, and a box of Shamrock Seeds! These can both come in very handy on March 17th. No Pinch Pills are great to give to your friends or hand out at the office. They ward off those mischievous little pinchers in the event that you forget to wear your green.
Shamrock Seeds are a distant cousin of the sunflower seed I believe. They make a great little treat to snack on and little leprechauns often leave them laying about for kids that they see being extra good on Saint Patricks Day…. or at least that is how legend has it!
You can make each of these St Paddy’s treats super easily with the free printables provided at the end of this post. Just download the printable then print and cut manually or use your cutting machine to do all the hard work for you!
I printed these on Silhouette Gold Printable Foil. I thought it was perfect for this project because it has a perfect golden sheen and it is adhesive so all you have to do is peel and stick. To create my labels, I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo to prep the labels. If you don’t have a Silhouette you can just run your labels through the printer and cut them by hand.
Then I peeled each label off and lined it up using the top of the Tic Tacs to the middle of the label as a my starting point. I pressed firmly to secure and they were ready to go!
My kids haven’t seen these yet, but I think they are going to be pretty excited. Who knows, we might have just invented a new tradition!
