Snacks on Display

Another Monday. So sad, we know, but we have a colorful post to brighten your day! Here is a super easy and cheap little craft for adorable snack holders for your next party, girls’ night, picnic in the park… or whenever the need for cut snacking strikes!

You’ll need: paper plates, decorative (or plain Scotch) tape, extra ribbons/strings- anything you want to decorate the container with), a ruler, scissors (regular and/or decorative), paper clips, and a pencil.
