Admittedly, I am about as creative as a box of toothpicks. I appreciate creativity. I admire creativity. But I look at something creative – even simple things – and think, “That would never have crossed my mind to do that…” All of this is to say that my love of Etsy makes me FEEL creative. I can buy these DIY kits and spend 10 minutes on a little project and suddenly I feel like a creative genius!
That’s what happened when I saw these adorable little Hershey Kiss labels on Creative Queen Bee’s etsy page. Sure, these are really just computer labels that I’m sure anyone could probably create at home, but to me they were brilliant! And easy! And creative! So, I bought two sheets of them for goody bag treats for Bean’s 2nd birthday party.
First, you choose your characters and then what you want them to say. Mine say, “Happy 2nd Birthday, Michael!” Our theme is Sesame Street and so I got Elmo and Cookie Monster characters.
Then, you buy a bag (or three…) of Hershey Kisses and you put one label on the bottom of each Kiss.
I found clear goody bags at Party City and put 10 labeled Kisses in each bag. Then, because I had so many Kisses left over, I added a few unlabeled ones to the bags, too. Each of my bags had 15 Kisses in them.
It took me about 20 minutes to get all 10 goody bags made. It was easy peasy and by the time I was finished, I felt so creative and crafty, even though I really didn’t come up with anything on my own.
These will go into small sand buckets we are using as take home treats along with two other little somethings. As I complete those “crafts,” I’ll post about them here to review what I ordered. Hopefully, you’ll get some good creative ideas of your own, too!
