Well Top o' The Mornin' to You!!!!
Hope you have a fun and festive St. Patrick's Day!!!
Welcome to the St. Patrick's Day blog hop. If you've arrived here from Kim's blog Puppies and Paper Crafts you are right on track. If not, you'll want to start at the beginning at Ashley's blog The Blog Hop Princess so you don't miss any of the fantastic projects. Plus there are prizes along the way!!!
I have a couple of projects I'd like to share with you!
The first is a banner I made for my fireplace. I saw one on Pinterest and had to make my own version.
I started with a picture of a Vintage map of Ireland:
I printed seven 5X7" copies of it and then cut the bottoms so that they would look like banners.
I cut 7 shamrocks from green paper and 42 hearts from green paper. I scored all the hearts down the middle and then glued them together in two's. I glued the shamrocks onto the maps and then glued 3 sets of hearts onto each shamrock so that they would be 3 dimensional.
Then it was just a matter of hole punching the banners at each corner of the tops and running green grosgrain ribbon through the holes.
Voila, turned my fireplace from drab to festive!!
The second project is some little Hershey Kisses Shamrocks I made for the kids in my neighborhood.
I found the tutorial on how to create these at Qbees Quest.
Her tutorial is very easy to follow and all you need is two colors of green card stock, some twine or ribbon for a bow and your Hershey's Kisses.
Now for a little blog candy, you can have a chance to win if you are a follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
Now you are off to Mary's blog The Tool Shed to see what fun St. Paddy's day creation she has for you!!!!
