A St. Patrick's Day Decoration from my Dollar Store Find

I found this little piece of home decor at the Dollar Store. I purchased it with the intent to reuse the frame and came up with a quick and easy St. Patrick's Day decoration. I love how it turned out. It took very little time, used only a handful of products, and cost next to nothing to make. AND it's quite cute! My photos walk you through the process from Dollar Store find to cut holiday decoration.

Punch a stem for your Shamrock from a scrap of the DSP as shown in photo below.

Now, let's fold 6 of the 9 hearts in half and then layer and adhere 2 folded hearts to a flat heart by applying glue down along the folds only.

I arranged the 3D hearts and stem into the shape of a shamrock and adhered them to 4" square piece of Gold Foil. I adhered Garden Green card stock to the inside of the frame, then adhered the shamrock on gold foil to it. A fun and festive little piece of home decor just in time for St. Patrick's Day from my Dollar Store find.

Wildflower Path

I want to show you how to make beautiful cards with the Wildflower Path Stamp Set with 2 step stamping. I make it easy for you to use this often overlooked stamp set to make cards that give stunning results, so much so that you are going to want to own this pretty stamp set.

 

Cutting Dimensions for my first card shown below:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • DSP = 4" x 6", cut at 5 1/4" to form 2 pieces measuring 5 1/4" x 4" and 3/4" by 4 inches. The strip will be use on  inside of card.
  • Basic White card stock for inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White card stock for stamping = 4" x 4"
  • Ribbon = 5"

For the card below, I used many of the same elements as in my first card but made one significant change to create a fun fold card. I made a base of Mint Macaron card stock 5 1/2" x 4 1/4 layered with DSP measuring 4 5 1/4" x 4". I then cut a piece of 4" x 8" white card stock, scored and folded it in half to use as the card that opens to include your written message. Otherwise, the two cards are very similar.

Spring Treat Bag

In today's video demonstration, I show you how to make a cute party favor or treat bag perfect for your spring occasions - St. Patrick's Day, Easter, birthdays, bridal shower & weddings, and so much more. Or how about decorating one of these treat bags for a teacher or graduate and enclosing a gift card? No matter the occasion, people are going to love receiving one of these sweet treat bags. What occasion will you create these party favors for? What Stampin' Up! products will you use in making them? Let your creativity shine, then share what you create.

 

I've chosen 2 beautiful papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for these two spring party favors. The stamped image is part of the Oval Occasions Bundle and is absolutely perfect for celebrating Easter and Spring.

This favor is actually a bag with a tent-like band that slides over the closed bag. The bag can hold chocolates and other sweets, a gift card, and even a piece of jewelry. I'm sure you can think of many other items to put inside these favors.

So Lucky to Know You

In today's post I have a video replay of a recent Facebook Live in which I demonstrate an easy-to-make Fun Fold Card and show you how to create shamrocks with the Heart Punch Pack. The Old Olive with metallic gold paper is from the Ornate garden Suite and makes these St. Patrick's Day cards elegant. And whether you're Irish or not, these cards are a nice way to express love and gratitude to those we are so lucky to know.
