We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day a little early since it falls on the weekend. What do you do to celebrate this Holiday? For years, I would make authentic-ish Irish meals, but nobody cared for them. The recipes I found tend to use a lot of cabbage and my family just wasn’t a fan. So we won’t be having corned beef and cabbage tonight. And I’m trying to do a no-carb thing so green beer is off the menu for me. Oh well, maybe I’ll just have to break out the whiskey. Anyone know if there are carbs in whiskey?
Anyway, on to today’s project. I found an adorable box for a cupcake online that was decorated for St. Patrick’s. I didn’t have all of the same supplies the other Demonstrator had, so I changed it up a bit based on what I did have. And I used one of our mini Pizza boxes that you can get for free right now as a Sale-Abration item.
Isn’t he just the cutest! To make your wee Irish lad, you’ll need the Hello Cupcake stamp set and a handful of punches. Yes, you guessed it. The beard is the frosting from the cupcake glued upside-down to the face. The face and nose are punched out circles. The hat is the new Story Label punch from the Sale-Abration Coordination Release and the hat brim is a couple petals from the Daisy punch. The black band and gold buckle are cut using a paper trimmer. I used my Basic Black Marker to make dots for the eyes.
I love the size of these mini pizza boxes. They are perfect for a little treat or a couple candies. I’m guessing this little leprechaun has gold coins in his treat box. And now, I’ll leave you with this Irish proverb:
May you live as long as you want,
and never want as long as you live.
We are now in the last month of Sale-Abration and several items have already sold out. All Sale-abration products and Coordinating products are now available only while supplies last. If there is something that you wanted, don’t wait any longer to grab it. Click the Order Online button on the right and it will take you to my store.
You’re hired! Doesn’t that sound awesome? I bet you didn’t even know you were looking for a job. If you’ve been on the fence about becoming a Demonstrator, now is the perfect time to sign up. Sale-abration started earlier this month and we have some great rewards that are available. There are two options for signing up: Option 1 spend $99 and select $175 in products to come in your kit; Option 2 is spend $129 and select $175 in products for your kit and get that amazing new Craft & Carry Tote Bag! I was able to get one of these tote bags last month and it is so great. I love that it fits my paper trimmer and has a ton of pockets for so many things.
