Pot of Gold

Hello and Happy Monday!!

How are all my crafty friends today?
I am doing good, unfortunately I had to go
back to work today after being off for a month
with my foot surgery.  Everything went great, so I
had no more excuses for not going back to work...LOL

I have a fun project to share with you today
that I made to enter in a few challenges.

I made this little treat box with the
pillow box from Art Philosophy cut at 6".
The foil paper is DCWV "Green Tea" Stack.

I added a double belly band around the box.
I used a Martha Stewart Border Punch
on the first layer, and then embossed the
second layer with a Shamrock Folder from
the Cuttlebug Companion Folder
from Simply Charmed.  For this layer,
I used Tim Holtz Kraft-Core
cardstock from Coordinations.
I then sanded it.

Next I cut this cute little Pot of Gold from
Simply Charmed at 2"
 I added his cute little face
from Peachy Keen's "Piles of Smiles"
stamp set.  The gold coins were cut
from some gold foil paper.

I used my stylus to emboss some lines
on the coins to define them better.
I attached the pot of gold to the box
with an Action Wobble.

I also cut some Shamrocks from foil paper
using the My Creative Time
"You're My Pot of Gold"
stamp and die set.
The sentiment below is from the same set.

The sentiment was stamped onto
a Ticket cut from the
My Creative Time
"Stiched Fun Ticket Dies"
I added some Tim Holtz
Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I added some gold twine to finish it off!!

I got my inspiration for this project from
page 23 of the March Issue of the Cricut Magazine.
Gwen Lords made this adorable box.



I will be entering this into the following challenges:
FCCB - Fun with Puns
Little Scrap Pieces - Emboss It
Cut It Up - Pinterest Inspired
Peachy Keen - 3D Objects with Metal
My Craft Spot - Pop It Up
Cardz TV - Luck of the Irish
