Happy St. Patricks Day!

Published by at 6:44 pm under My Creations

Hello!! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you’re all wearing green! :) My little guy needed to make a Leprechaun trap for his preschool today. When I first heard this I was a little scared to say the least lol. But then my mom reminded me that I could just decorate something! So I did! My friend Rachel and I went out to Archivers and Craft Warehouse and found some DARLING paper, embellies and a clear paint can. I figured that will work, if he catches a Leprechaun he can just put the lid on it! 😉 It was so cute…when we were making it he suggested we make some stairs so they could get IN the pail! So cute! :)

This was really easy to make. I just cut the paper to size for the inside. Added the NEW Queen and Company Shamrock feltto the top and slipped it in. Then on the outside, I added some thick white velvet ribbon and some green shiny pipe cleaner for some shine! (that’s what I wrapped the handle with too) On the top I put some other shiny shamrock paper on it an more pipe cleaner to fill a gap in the lid. I then added the adorable EK Success pot of gold! :) Since I already had the paper out I decided to make a quick card! Here it is!

    Cute stuff! I wish I had seen you at Craft Warehouse…the funny thing is I did see Rachel for a few seconds on my way out for lunch! So to officially introduce myself, I’m Christina (SCS – thecardpixie) and I work at Craft Warehouse. Next time you come shopping, I’d love to say hi! I met Rachel at SWISS, the shoebox swap she originally hosted. There is one coming up in April, if you’d like to come!
