St. Patrick's Day Favor Match Box

Everyone who knows me, understands that I love holidays! Never mind that I am only a teensy bit Irish, I go all out for St Patty's. I decorate the house and make a big St Patty's dinner for friends and family. Our drinks are green, as well as some of the food. I decided this year to also make favors for each guests place setting at the table. I also am entering the favor in the Flaunt it Fridays challenge. I am also entering it in Celebrate the Occasion challenge.
This is my first time entering a challenge and I am excited.
I am hoping to find some chocolate gold coins to put in the boxes. I added a little stamp inside so that after you grab your chocolate there is a surprise message!
The box was cut with the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more Cricut cartridge set at 3". The shamrocks were cut with the Give a Hoot Cricut cartridge, and they were cut at 1 1/2" in the light color and 1 1/4" in the dark color for the large shamrock. The small shamrocks were cut at 1" and 3/4".

Supplies used: cardstock - two shades of green; patterned paper is double sided - Jade_White Big Dots by Scenic Route Paper Co.; flowers and ribbon from my stash; rhinestones - Kaiser Craft; Stamp - JoAnn's.

I think they will look cute on my table!

Have a terrific Thursday!
