St. Patrick's Day Treat

  Just a really quick post today....we've got friends coming for dinner tonight and I've got some shopping and cleaning to get done.  I wanted to share this little project since it can only be used once a year!  I made these for my stamping ladies who placed orders last month.

  I had more pictures of the group of them but somehow it got deleted!  These are called sour cream containers and they are super easy.  There is a really good tutorial HERE on Splitcoaststampers so I'm not going to go into details about that.  I filled mine with almond Hershey Kisses.  They are the ones in the gold wrappers so I thought that was fitting for St. Patrick's day...kind of like a pot of gold.  I could easily fit 6 kisses into the container.

  To make the tag I just used my small heart punch and punched 3 hearts from Wild Wasabi and then I used part of the branch shape from the Bird punch to make the stem.  I glued them all down in a shamrock shape onto a Very Vanilla tag that was matted onto a larger Blush Blossom tag.  The edges of the Very Vanilla tag are sponged a little with Wild Wasabi ink.

  The tag is tied onto the sour cream container with Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon.

  Have a wonderful St. Patrick's day...we've all got our green on and had green pancakes for breakfast.  What are you doing for day?

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  2. So cute! I love those little favor boxes. And I never would have thought about making a shamrock out of heart punches-so genius! TFS

  3. Amanda you're inspiring - just what I was looking for for my this month's thank you's. I have a delivery coming on Monday and loads of customers. I didn't even see that those shamrocks were made with hearts - very effective. Helen x
