While in Vancouver for the SU Regional meeting we went to an Irish pub. We ended up there by accident but it was good one and we had a fun evening. It did get me thinking that St. Patrick's day is just 2 weeks away. So when I was invited to a fellow SU demo's house (thanks again Pam!) I thought it would be fun to make something celebrating St.Patrick's day.
Would you like to make your own pot of gold? Here's what I used.
Here are the punches you will need: 1 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, 1/4" circle, 1 3/4" scallop circle, small oval, small heart from the Heart to Heart punch.
You will use the 1 3/4" punch to cut away a little section of the 1 3/4"circle you punched out to give you the opening of your pot.
To make the pot handles punch 2 1/4" circles and then use the 1/2" circle to punch around it.
Here's how you assemble your pot. I used the Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue (pg 197). I know it can be a little messy but with glue you have a little wiggle time to get the punches positioned just right.
Here's your "gold" (brushed gold card stock page 170). You will need to trim the scallop circle to fit your pot's opening.
Attach the gold coins to the scallop circle to create the illusion of lots of coins.
Punch out 4 of the smallest hearts on the Heart to Heart punch. I applied a small dot of glue and arranged the hearts. This is where the little wiggle time is helpful so you can get your lucky clover looking really good.
Here I am applying the final bling. I wanted to show you this method of picking up the rhinestones with my paper snips. This works really well and works with the pearls too.
I covered 2 peppermint patties with 1 3/8" circles cut from the brushed gold card stock to fill my cone with.
The lucky cone is the new Petal Cone die (pg 15 of the Occasions mini).
These are the Garden Green pieces that are cut out with the die. I love that even the banner is done for me! Cut an extra 1/2 scallop piece out of Wild Wasabi and save the Garden Green one for another use. To make the cone I cut off one of the 1/2 circles. I wanted a little more texture so I ran the cone through the Elegant Lines TIEF. I used sticky strip to secure the cone, you could use glue too. Attach the extra Wild Wasabi 1/2 scallop to the front and then add on your pot of gold and banner. The sentiment on the banner is from TeenyTiny Wishes ( this a must have set.) I curled my banner using a bone folder and attached it with mini glue dots.
