Lucky Green at The Kraft Journal

Hello, friends!  Welcome to my blog today.  I will have two posts today; this one for the new "Lucky Green" at The Kraft Journal, and one for the Echo Park and Top Dog Dies Blog Hop.  I'm so glad to have you stop by, and I hope that you will check out both posts.

For this week's "Lucky Green" Challenge, I wanted to share some of my favorite "yummy treats". When I thinks green, some of the yummy treats that quickly come to my mind include Green Apple Caramel Covered Suckers and Mint Green Tea Hand-Stained Bias Tape.  They're both SUPER YUMMY! I started this quick and easy project with a Small Kraft Coffee Bag With Window and filled it with my favorite green treat which are Green Apple Caramel Covered Suckers ( can find them at Dollar Tree). I closed the Kraft Coffee Bag and ran two lengths of Green Baker's Twine around the bag and tied them in a knot, and then a bow.

Next, I took a Canvas Triangle (which, by the way, are now on sale for $1.50 for a set of 3) and to that, I added a luscious bow made of Mint Green Tea Hand-Stained Bias TapeVintage Winter White Hand-Stained Bias Tape, and the Green Baker's Twine.  Next, I took a Round Metal Edged Grungy Prim Tag and, using my handy Bone Folder Tool, applied a Melissa Francis rub-on St. Patrick's Day sentiment.  This project literally took me about three minutes to complete.  The amazing and versatile supplies found at the Kraft Outlet make your crafting projects fun and easy.

I'm sharing my lovely St. Patrick's Day treat project in the following:
