Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a St. Patrick’s Day Craft with you. Seriously, how much fun is St. Patrick’s Day? We love it here in Notre Dame country! Today I have a cute little kids treat and then I decided to make a grown up version of it too! There are 2 free printables for you, so just click on the links and download!
To create these rainbow seeds, I used a pail from Darice and filled it with Skittles. Then I used this cut from the Silhouette store to cut out a shamrock on Spotted Core. If you do not have a Silhouette fear not, here is a template for you to cut some out. Then I sanded the core with my Sand-It tool. I just love how it makes the spots pop just by sanding it!
Then I used some fun fur to tie around the handle and this free printable on my blog. To print the free printable, I used Core’dinations 8 1/2×11 white 110 lb cardstock. My printer loves it!! To create the flourish cut around the leprechaun tag, I used this Flourish Slim punch from Hobby Lobby. That’s it pretty easy peasy.
St. Patrick’s Day Treat
Here is another St. Patrick’s Day treat idea that is for a different age range.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by and checking out my projects!
I hope that you are able to use the free printable with some 110 lb white core!

Shaunte Wadley has some cute custom holiday earrings with Glittersilk and some Mod Podge, for us today!
Here is the step-out tutorial:
Using a craft punch, die-cut or electronic cutting machine- cut four small shamrock shapes. Two of the shamrocks should be cut in the opposite directions so the four shapes can be sandwiched together front to back.
Using your Xyron adhesive, adhere the shapes together.
Using a small hole punch, or a needle, create a hole where you would like the shamrock to hang.
Lay the (double sided) shamrock flat, and apply Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to entire surface of shamrock. Allow to dry fully.
Flip shamrocks over, and apply Dimensional Magic to entire surface of reverse side.
Using a needle, go through holes again (to clear out Dimensional Magic) , and insert a small jump ring into hole. Attach earring hook to jump ring.
The DImensional Magic gives the finished earring stability and the look of enamel. They are very sturdy, and do not look like paper at all .A great way to make cute seasonal earrings for every holiday for pennies.
