Little Pot O' Gold by Maritza garcia.

Hello Friends! Is anyone else amazed at just how fast the New Year is passing us by? I know we all say this year after year, but really, time flies whether we're ready or not! I've been trying to stay on top of every holiday/celebration, but darn, sometimes I need to remember, "You Can Do Anything, But Not Everything" -David Allen.

This year has me running low on the crafting department, my day job has me out of my studio a lot more than usual, giving hardly anytime to crate these past few weeks. Nonetheless, I wanted to bring back one of my very favorite Silhouette craft projects from last year because I loved it so much I had to bring it back in case you missed it!

It's these tiny Pot O' Gold 3D party favors! You can fill them with anything you like, I like to stay away for giving out candy and usually go for tiny trinkets instead, like tiny erasers, mini stickers, nontoxic tattoos, short pencils and bubbles. Don't get me wrong, candy is great, but to many sweets could rot little teeth. Regardless on how you roll, you can bet these little pots o' gold will be a hit.

Lucky Shamrocks

Lucky Shamrocks by Maritza Garcia.

Well aren't you just so "LUCKY," from shamrocks to four leaf clovers all ready to go up on display! Here you have my rolled crepe paper pebbles for all your fun paper décor. Simply roll them and store them.

For this project I used Lori Whitlock's 5 clover shamrocks set, that I downloaded via the Silhouette Design Store. I went with two Shamrock Shapes for this project, One Four leaf Clover and Two Shamrocks that I covered in my HANDMADE rolled crepe paper pebbles. To recreate your very own Shamrocks/Clovers and Paper Letters, you may do so by purchasing the designs via Silhouette Design Store, by clicking directly on the links below.

NOTE: you must own a Silhouette CAMEO to download these designs to recreate this project. However, you could EASILY hand cut them too.

Fill them any way you like, I went with GOLD COINS, but CANDY is good too.

 "Lucky Charm Canvas"

As we near St. Patrick's day, I thought it would be fun to try my luck at catching a little green Leprechaun by creating a "Lucky Charm Canvas" filled with Shamrocks and clovers, bunting banner, and paper medallions.

Other items I used were a basic wood frame that I covered in a Burlap Wrapping Paper (yes- it's paper), I believe I found that at our local Tuesday Morning Store, some Printed + Plain Paper Card Stock Paper for your paper medallions and some Dollar Tree St. Patrick's Day Stickers. If you have never made paper medallions, here's a great YouTube DIY Tutorial found on the link below.
