St. Patty's Day Fun!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011


I'm not blogging much this week due to the sad loss of my dear sweet cousin and to take a much needed rest during Spring Break.

I pre-scheduled this post to share with you about the St. Patty's Day challenge we have going on over at Papercraft Star this week.

Here's the inspiration:
Create a St. Patrick's Day inspired project using this photograph.



I was inspired by to make a 'St. Patrick's Day' Fun Cup and a 'Cloverleaf " Mini Card this week. I found the green cup at my local Super Target store and added fun embellies from Michael's Craft Store to dress it up. These cups would be great as party favors or for kid craft days. 

Here's a close-up of "Mr. Leprechaun". Isn't he cute?
I added some fuzzy fun behind his face for some extra added cuteness. :)


This cup originally came with a straw.
I took it out and added this cluster of St. Patty's Day goodies.


And I finished this project off with a sparkly "Mini Cloverleaf Card".


I have also pre-scheduled a fun Vinyl & Canvas Tutorial that I did for Papercraft Star. Hope you will check that out later this week! I'll be back to visit all of your wonderful blogs soon. Have a Happy Week!

I'm also linking this up at:


Project Supplies: 
Green Cup (Target Corporation); St. Patty's Day Embellishements (Celebrate It - Michael's Craft Store); Green Polka Dot Ribbon (Celebrate It); Cardstock (Bazzill)
