I've been coming up with a lot of St. Patrick's Day Party Ideas for my family's annual get-together (we're Irish!), and, of course, I decided on a chocolate favor that is everyone's favorite St. Pat's color - green!
Making these St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Favors was pretty easy and a blast! I modified this great idea from Qbee's Quest to make the favors larger so they could hold more kisses. Follow my tutorial below, and check out some of our St. Patrick's Day Party Favors for more inspiration!
Materials (makes 1 favor)
- 1 sheet green cardstock (8 ½ x 11”)
- Paper cutter and scissors
- Double stick tape
- 6 Hershey kisses
Step 1: Cut a strip of paper, 1 ½ x 9 ½”. Then, make two slits on one side of the paper at 1 ½" and 8". Cut a slit on the opposite side at 4 ¾". Make sure that the slits are cut halfway up the cardstock.
Step 2: Loop one end of the strip around and attach the 1 ½" slit into the center notch.
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 on the other side, making a second loop.
Step 4: Cut a second strip of paper, 1 ½ x 6 ¼”. Then cut notches on one side of the strip at 1 ½ " and 4 ¾”. Make sure that the slits are cut halfway up the cardstock.
Step 5: Bend the strip in a loop so the two notches align. Add the loop to the center of the first larger strip.
Step 6: Attach the "stems" of the shamrock with double stick tape.
Step 7: Cut three more strips that are each 1 ½ x 4". Mark and score the papers at 1" intervals.
Step 8: Fold the slips into three triangles and add two Hershey's kisses to each. Secure the triangle with a piece of double stick tape.
Step 9: Insert a triangle into each loop of the shamrock. Display on a tray or in a bowl for guests to enjoy on their way home from your Easy St. Pats Open House Party. Sham-ROCK the House.
