Lucky duck, lucky dog, happy go lucky—just a few of the fun St. Patrick’s day inspired sayings on my latest free print-it-yourself printable.
St. Patrick’s Day is Friday and one thing I love to do is design party printables for holidays and events. I personally love printables not only because I can customize the colors and sayings to be just what I want, but I also get to provide the files for others to use. And what’s really great about PDF printables: They are always quick, affordable and an easy last-minute decoration. Plus, often it’s the only decor touch you need for a day like St. Paddy’s Day.
So be sure to download the free print-it-yourself St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Tags. Below, I show two uses: 1) drinking glass tags and 2) dessert toppers.
No matter how you use them, the fist step is downloading the free St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Tags. The file is a 8.5 x 11 PDF that you can download and then print as many copies that you need. You can print them on your home printer or take the file to your local printer like Staples or FedEx Office. In exchange, all I ask is you don’t sell the goods you make, don’t distribute the file or use any of the artwork as your own. Please also give credit to Tonality Designs for any photos used online or in social media.
You can use the tags for a variety of uses, but below I give you two examples.
Use #1: Drink Labels for Green Beer
For the drinking glasses, I printed the file on regular paper and then attached each tag to a quilted mason jar using double-sided tape.
I decided to serve a St. Patrick’s day classic—Green Beer. All you need is green food coloring and your favorite beer. I added 1 drop of green food coloring to the glass and then poured the beer. Make sure you put the food coloring in first because it will naturally mix when you pour your beer into the glass.
Not into beer, you can pretty much add food coloring to any drink so serve milk, Sprite, water… Or I served wine too and kept it the natural golden color. Are there really any rules when you’re having fun?
Use #2: Dessert Toppers
For dessert toppers I suggest printing the file on heavy white cardstock. The weight of the cardstock helps make sure your toppers are sturdy enough to stand on their own. Also, I often use two tags per topper so that the topper is double-sided; therefore, looks good from all sides.
Attach each tag to a party straw. On some (or all) add gold tissue paper tassels as well.
I wanted something really easy to serve, so although I don’t know how Irish mint chocolate chip ice cream is, the color seemed perfect. You could also add toppers to your corned beef and cabbage or Irish soda bread (wink)! Whatever floats your Irish-loving boat.
Matching Banner Also Available
I simply printed the 3-page PDF file on white cardstock and then strung together on white rope and also added tissue paper tassels. The banner made for a nice backdrop for the drink and dessert bar.
