St. Patrick's Day Teacher Gifts

Today I completed Riley's St. Patrick's Day teacher gifts. I created a rainbow of Air Head candies. They come in a box of 60 for $7 at Target. I originally was going to use the rainbow Twizzlers but could not find them. In all honesty. . . they aren't very good. So I was left with a variety of options like those wax bottle candies but they ran pretty expensive. We headed to Target and found the Air Heads. Problem was that they come in red, orange, green, blue, white and pink. The white is a bit of a blue-ish tint so I grabbed my Ranger alcohol inks. I dropped a few drops of yellow onto a small piece of felt and swiped it across the Mystery White candy wrapper. The pink. . . I turned purple using the same method.

Here is a free download of the rainbow image I used. Have fun making your own gifts!
