Happy St Patrick's Day!

Since March is craft month and St Patrick's Day and I'm Irish I decided to make some cute little treat holders for my co-workers.

I made another version of these boxes for Valentine's (here) as they can be made for any occasion with any theme. I originally found the tutorial  on Split Coast Stampers Flat Backed Treat Box, great source for all kinds of crafty goodness.

I love making these cute little boxes and filling them with a few yummy treats or treasures.... how fun! I made 2 versions of this treat box for St Patrick's Day.

Here is the first one:

I started with the October 31 Cricut cartridge and cut out the cauldrons but cut off the feet and stir stick at the top, then added another piece of black cardstock to the back.  I filled in the center of the pot with some gold Stickles then some gold rhinestones and let them dry.

I cut the rainbow from the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge then added the pot of gold with some popdots to give a little dimension.

I had some leftover Shamrocks from when I made the Kiss Me banner cut from the Cricut Spring Holiday Cards cartridge. So I added some adorable little faces on then from the Peachy Keen Hot Cocoa stamp set and added them to the front of the box.

Both sentiments are from the Pink By Design Luck O' The Irish stamp set and embossed in Stampendous Black Embossing Powder.

Yummy Chocolate covered Mints and Sour Green Apples await inside!
Here is the second box:

For this box I used some Shamrock paper from Recollections and added a thin black mat behind it. My Cuttlebug and a Spellbinders Labels Nine Die made the cut to use for the sentiment. 

Both sentiments are also from the Pink By Design Luck O' The Irish stamp set and embossed in Stampendous Black Embossing Powder. I added a few popdots to the back and placed it in the center.

More yummy goodness inside!
I hope everyone had a great St Patrick's Day and didn't drink too many green beers!

HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY from me to you!

Look the pot of glitters!
