Back with another fun family gift! This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.
St. Patrick's Day has come and gone but some great ideas for you for next year! Each family did get different items but a couple of things were the same for each family. Everyone received the green nail polish I decorated by punching out a circle in Whisper White card stock stamping in Emerald Envy onto the Whisper White circle, gold coins, trivia cards, and St. Patrick's Day drink recipe (found online) printed it out and stamped on it then attached to a piece of Emerald Envy card stock and laminated it, luck of the Irish message (found online), and catch a leprechaun box.
First Up- How about a Catch a Leprechaun Box! Saw the idea on Pinterest only using a coffee can so I whipped up this baby instead ;)
- Cut 1 piece of Chipboard 4" x 4".
- Cut 1 piece of Garden Green card stock 5 1/2" x 5". Score 1" around all sides. Cut on scored lines and fold to create like a lid. Stand the Lid up on end and glue the chipboard piece to the bottom inside.
- I purchased rainbow bags for another project but they were to small so I used them for this. I glued the bag to the chipboard. Then glued a bunch of cotton balls to the chipboard and part ways onto the rainbow bag.
- Cut a craft stick down and attached to the card stock lid and into the cotton balls. Tied a piece of red ribbon to the stick and attached to the bag.
- I punched out some Gold Glimmer Paper using our 1" Circle Punch and then glued them randomly all over to entice that little leprechaun ;)
Pot of Gold! Who wouldn't want a pot of gold!! lol I used the Silhouette to cut out the pot. Then added some more gold glimmer coins to the front of it.
I found these St. Patrick's Day Trivia on Pinterest so I printed them off and then stamped a clover on each one in Emerald Envy. The stamp is something I picked up many years ago by another company. Also in the pot of gold was green nail polish, green bracelets, gold coins and bubbles that I found in green!
For the families with younger kids I created coloring books for them. I found free color pages online and man is their a ton of them! Stacked the sheets together and then cut Emerald Envy card stock to create a book cover. I stamped the clover and kiss me in Emerald Envy Ink. I printed out each kid's name onto Whisper White card stock and then stamped the clovers across the top in Emerald Envy. Does that image look familiar to you old timers? Yep that was the clover wheel from way back when. Then I finished by adding gold coins to the covers. So fun and cute!
I also found a free printable online for learning St. Patrick's Day Images. So I printed them out and laminated them as well for the younger kids.
So when I purchased the stuff for St. Patrick's Day it was in March...my brother got engaged at the end of Oct. so we had to scramble to come up with something for the future sister in-law. What in the world do you do at the end of Oct as your not going to find anything in this small town for St. Patrick's Day! lol So off to pinterest I go (boy does that save my bacon a lot) and I saw coffee mugs when I searched so light bulb this idea was born. I wish I would have thought of this sooner to do for each family. So we made these using the Silhouette and I'm not gonna lie they turned out pretty awesome! However hubby was ready to drink when we were done. haha I also listed these in my Etsy Store to if you are interested in purchasing a set for next year!
