Silly Sandwich Toothpicks

Last night I decided to fix some BLT's for din-din. (Ok, they were BLAT's. I added avocado.) While the bacon was sizzling I had a fun idea! I love getting those fancy fringed sandwich toothpicks when I order up a tasty sammie at a restaurant or deli. (It's the simple things that make me giddy.) So, I decided to make up my own version of them.
My old-school Dymo label maker was all I needed! Make 2 labels & stick 'em back-to-back, with the toothpick in-between. If you don't have a label maker in your crafty stash, you can create a similar look by simply stamping letters/words onto circle dot stickers. Again, adhere 2 stickers back-to-back.
Here are a couple other versions I came up with:
Garage sale stickers.

Tiny stars made from a mini punch. A little dab of glue is all you need.
My girls loved these on their sandwiches!
You can totally personalize these for baby showers, weddings, birthdays, etc.
I really could have gone crazy making silly sandwich toothpicks. But I found out that doing this during the prime hours of tummy grumbling is not such a good idea.


  1. adorable! funny thing is that when the picture of the sandwich came up my two year old said, "eat!" and sure enough, it was labeled eat... (purely coincidence, but still hilarious!) :)

  2. Whew, finally all caught up! :-) Love this idea. And I must admit, those sandwiches made me hungry. LOL! You are just so creative. I would love to be that way. What is your secret? I made 35 pairs of earrings yesterday, all unique. Does that count as being crafty? LOL! Oh well, just pop on before bed to say I love that idea. Oh and off topic, loved what you did for your wee one's birthday. For last minute, it looked great. :-)

  3. Very fun! What a great way to put a smile of their faces! =)

  4. What a simple but cute way to make mealtime more fun. :)

  5. What a fabulous idea! These would be so much fun at a party! You're your blog!

  6. Fun idea!! I would love to link to it from
