I made these “SWEET POTS OF GOLD” for my “3” kiddos. I first cut a basket shape out from my cricut cartridge Doodlecharms. I had to alter it a bit by cutting off some basket looking sides, to make it look more like a pot. I also would of used just black paper but didn’t have any. Once I altered the baskets, now pots… I stapled the two pieces together leaving the top open.

 I stuffed cut green tissue paper down in the pots and filled them with GOLD AKA ROLO’S! mmmm!

 You most certainly can fill them with the gold chocolate coins, but for me they cost to much for so little. Besides ROLO’S are way better. winks!
and so my kids know that THEY HAVE THEIR OWN……. I MADE ONE JUST FOR ME……..
THANKS A BUNCH FOR STOPPING BY, your love and comment’s are like GOLD… or chocolate. xo jen
