Celtic Baptism Theme

Our boy is being baptized in a few months and I have been playing around with ideas for a theme.  I finally concluded that I wanted to stick with a Trinity theme rather than the standard cross theme.  Tapping into our Celtic roots, I came up with the idea of using a celtic trinity knot as the main decoration.  So I came up with a cheap favor idea: Hershey's kisses with customized labels!

My plan is to print these circles on sticky paper, cut them out, and stick on the kisses.  I'll then put a couple in organza bags from the dollar store with a little "thank you" card attached.

Here are my labels (I didn't make them perfectly, but it doesn't matter because I'll be cutting around the edge of the circle):

A brief how-to:
  • Download the 3/4" round label template found on the Avery website.  Open in your word processor.
  • Download this trinity knot image.  
  • Using a photo editor, change the background color to match your theme.  I used this online photo editor.
  • Purchase Avery Sticker Project Paper (8.5" x 11").  Print your circles on the paper.
  • Cut out the circles.  Remove protective backing and stick onto Hershey's Kisses.
  • Put a couple of kisses in organza bags.
  • Customize and print out business cards using Avery business card template.
  • Create hole using hole punch and attach to organza bag using choice of ribbon.
I also plan to have trinity knot fondant pieces on cupcakes for our guests.  Stay tuned for pictures after the special day!
