But I wanted something fun for my daughter (other than just wearing green)- last year we made Leprechaun cookies. This year, with the poppers (aka crackers... still sounds like an afternoon snack with cheese to me) all the rage, I pulled out my handy dandy MDS and got to work on a festive hybrid version.
I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!
I used a wide array of DSP to make the rainbow sides, and the middle is the grey chalkboard paper from the Convention 2012 download. Also, I didn't have any rainbow embellishments, so I made my own using the freeform tool. There are so many cool things you can do with that if you give it a try!
I sized these at 4" x 5.25" so that I was able to print 4 of these to a page (my printer does a 1/4" border). I removed the border from the short side, but kept the one on the long side to use as the tab to hold the popper together (Note: this is very important- and I learned the hard way to NOT cut it off :P ). Then I scored the ends in at 1/2", 1", and 1 1/2"; and then the long way it is scored every 1" (leaving the 1/4" tab on the end).
I used the envelope punch board to make the holes. It really is the perfect size for this project, and I love that you don't have to try to line up a 'partial punch' with one of the circles or ovals. I measured in 1" from each side using the punch board (so that the center of the notch lined up with the orange/yellow border and the green/blue border if you are a more visual person).
I'm planning to fill with skittles for my daughter and her friends. I hope they like their little handful of the rainbow!
Flutterby again soon :)
