St Patrick's Day - Exploring Cricut

Happy Monday everyone!!  It is challenge day over at Exploring Cricut.  We have a great challenge for you today! We are showcasing ST PATRICK'S DAY projects.  Here is what I came up with:



I decided to make my munchkins some little treat bags for St Patrick's Day.  I went on a quick hunt for green candy, but didn't have much luck.  They love Smarties, so that's what I grabbed.  The little toppers are 4 x 4 1/4, folded in half.  The little shamrocks are from Create a Critter 2 - I love that cartridge as much as the first!




I made 2 of them, as I have 2 kids, and just flipped the colors on each of them.  I doodles around with my Sakura Jelly Roll pens and stamped the cutie face with Peachy Keen's Happy Lashes, which you can find HERE.  The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps "Fun and Games", and you can pick up your own HERE.



Be sure to swing by Exploring Cricut and play along with us, you could win a great prize!  I can't wait to see what you find on your cartridges to inspire us.  Don't forget that there are new projects to inspire you every day on the blog, created by our amazing and talented Design Team.  I always love seeing what they create.
