Celebrate the Occasion DT post--St. Patrick's Day Challenge

It's my first week on the Design Team over at Celebrate the Occasion!! This week the challenge is to create a project, card, layout, or 3D item that has to do with St. Patrick's Day. I put my mind to work. The obvious choice of Cricut cuts would be the Leprechaun from Simply Charmed. But I wanted to make it different and add my own twist....so I used my Gypsy to weld the Little Guy to an open box from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More, and decorated the sides with shamrocks and a sentiment from Designer's Calendar. I used the 'Hide Contour' feature to hide his facial features, so I could add some Peachy Keen goodness to him! Chocolate gold coins are the perfect touch to add to my Irishman's Pot o' Gold. Without further ado, here is my St. Patrick's Day treat box!!



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridges: Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More, Simply Charmed, Designer's Calendar.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Peachy Keen Stamps: Everyday Character Assortment
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Pebbles Chalk

Now, hopefully this wee one has inspired you to head on over to Celebrate the Occasion to join in on our St. Patrick's Day Challenge! You have until Sunday, March 13th at 11:59pm EST to link up your project!



Thanks for stopping by!
