Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Yesterday I was in a crafting mood!
I love to browse Pinterest, and I get really inspired by the crafts I see there.
Someone had designed an Altoid tin box, so I used what I had on hand and copied it.
I found the images on Pinterest and printed them on paper.
I used dimensional sticky tape underneath them.
I used fabric and lace and ribbon and shamrock embellishments I already had on hand.
I think it turned out cute!
My box is a vintage Sucrets cough candy box made in the USA from my parent's collection.


The other week I created shamrock "candy" using the shamrock bead embellishments.
I cut lollipop sticks in half, and lined them up under the shamrock, layered on top of packing tape. Then I carefully placed another layer of tape on top, and I used a bit of the cardboard stapled to the end, which had been on the bead bag. Cool, eh?


Here is a closeup of the candy. I saw an idea online using heart beads for Valentine's so I decided to try it with the shamrock beads, which I found at Dollarama.


I put these photos on my doll blog too, but thought I'd also add them here.
HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY!
