Green and Gold Popcorn for St. Patrick's Day

Here's an affordable great little last minute gift for St. Patrick's Day-Green and Gold Popcorn! Super simple, you only need to use liquid green food coloring, Mother Nature took care of the gold:@)
Add some popcorn to a sandwich baggie, add drops of green (about 20 for a 1/4 C popcorn) 
and smoosh it around to distribute the color. Pour out onto a cookie sheet to dry, 
mix with gold popcorn and package any way you'd like. Jars are cute or if you want to give away several,
cellophane treat bags would be good tied with some green and gold ribbon.

A saying suggestion for the gift tag...
Just "popping" by to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Don't forget to wear your green and...
Have a happy day:@)

Updated: Some folks have asked how it looks popped,
here's a pic and link from the Red & Green I made at Christmas:

  9. That pig in his leprechaun outfit is a scream, Lynn! Thanks for the smiles.

    Thanks, too, for your kind words. The shock is starting to wear off, and I catch myself getting weepy at times so have difficulty even going to the grocery. I never know when it's going to hit. But I appreciate friends like you who take the time to care.

    XO,

    Thanks for crawling again this year, I loved having you take part!

  47. Great idea and sounds super easy to do! I think the unpopped corn with the gorgeous gold and green would make great filler for glass vases for St. Paddy's too!
