Outshine Bars

Do you love popsicles?

I usually prefer ice cream over popsicles.

Until now…

Outshine bars are a game changer.

These are amazing! 😍

My favorite flavor is Pineapple.

It almost tastes exactly like the sweet pineapple we had in Hawaii… YUM!

We apHERSHEYate You!

Do you ap’HERSHEY’ate someone in your life?

If so, don’t you think it’s time you show them just how much you care?

Well I have the perfect gift, for you!

This small but sweet gift will be sure to bring a smile to any face.

What You Need:

Cardstock

Scissors

Hershey Bar

Glue or Tape

Print:

We apHersheyate

I apHersheyate

How to Make:

Start by printing one of the PDFs listed above. One says we, and the other says I.

Since this gift was from both, Dax and I we obviously used the PDF we. However, I included the other PDF, as well.

Once printed, using scissors cut out the image.

After you have cut out the image. Next you are going to gold the grey tap backwards like so.

Then you will glue the grey tab, to the top of the page where the glue stick is.

Your paper should look like the photo above. The top and bottom should have been glued together to make a continuous piece of paper.

Once your glue has dried, you are ready to slide your candy bar into the paper sleeve. *Note- You do not need to use a king size Hershey bar like mine. A regular sized bar will work just as well.

Thoughts by L

I love to show gratitude for others. I think it is very important to be thankful for those who do kind acts of service towards you. I made this thank you gift for a sweet lady at my church who taught my primary class.

One of my favorite mottos is:

Have I found a delicious snack for you!

Do you love girl scout cookies? 

You know the mouth watering Samoa cookies…

If so, you are going to LOVE these!

For those of you who don’t enjoy coconut, I am going to say this…

I am not a big fan of coconut.

I like coconut but I wouldn’t say I love it.

However, these are the exception!

Jennies Organic Coconut bites are amazingly delicious…

They are my go to treat now!

They are not super sweet but they also curb any sugar craving.

Made with all organic ingredients. Cranberries, goji berries, chia seeds, semi sweet chocolate and coconut.

Soft, yet chewy… each bite is individual wrapped.

Coconut Bites

Our Favorite Catch!

Father’s Day is always a good excuse to spoil dad.

So why not get dad or your husband, what he really wants?

A candy tackle box…

An afternoon full of fishing and his favorite snacks!

“Happy Father’s Day to our Favorite Catch!”

What You Need:

Tackle Box

Cardstock

Printer

Fish Themed Candy

-Goldfish, Gummy Worms, Swedish fish, etc

Print:

Fathers Day – Tag

Happy Birthday – Tag

Favorite Fish – Tag

How to Make:

I purchased a small tackle box from Walmart, found in the fishing section. There was a wide variety of boxes to choose. This tackle box only cost $6.

Tackle Box

Another option I considered, was the clear organizer tackle. Which was nice because you get to decide where the dividers go. Which makes it more customizable.

Clear Organizer

I wanted mine to be more of a tackle box than just an organizer. That’s why I went with the first option.

Be sure to consider the food you plan on filling the box with, when purchasing your tackle!

That way you know how many dividers you need and know that each candy will fit in it’s designated section.

Especially, if your candy is long like twizzlers or pretzel rods.

These adorable pretzel fishing rods idea, from the TipToe Fairy would be sure to make a splash at any party!

How to make Fishing Rods

I wish I had planned more time so I could have made these. SO cute!

The next step is to collect your candy!

If you couldn’t tell from the photo, I purchased Swedish fish, sour gummy worms, goldfish, twizzlers, and gummy snakes.

Other great options would be regular gummy worms, sharks, octopuses, frogs, peach rings, life savers, etc.

Once you have collected your candy, it’s time to start organizing!

Unwrap and sort each candy into your tackle box.

Print the tag above, if desired and tape to the inside or outside of the box.

This would also make a wonderful birthday gift, as well!

I included 3 different tags for all occasions! A father’s day, birthday and generic tag, so that you can make it your own!

Thoughts by L:

Father’s play a very important role in our lives and our personal development.

May you always be thankful for the father figure in your life!

They do a lot more than we realize and we don’t thank them, as much as we should.

Be sure to show your loved one, just how much you care.

Happy Fishing!
