St. Patrick's Day Crafts

Seems I decided to take a blogging break.  Completely unintentional.  This week has flown by!  Girl Scout cookies sales are winding down but the hard part of balancing everything lies ahead.  When I was looking at the calendar last night to write all of the due dates down I realized that Saturday is St. Patrick's Day.  While this is a holiday that I have never really decorated for I did have a couple of things in mind that I wanted to do.

First up, shamrock on a block!  I just simply painted it white and cut out a shamrock on my Silhouette.  Luckily I had some green vinyl on hand.



Next up, Shamrock Gum Container Treats, similar to the ones I made for Valentine's Day.  Rather than do a paper topper this time I decided to make smaller versions of the shamrock I used above.  Cut, peeled and stuck them on.  I have been looking all over for the mint M&Ms but haven't had any luck so I decided to fill them with Skittles.



What I really like about doing them this way is that you can use the pop top!
