Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Here are my St. Paddy's Day cards and dimensional items that were made in my Bit O' the Green stamping event. I loved using all the punches to make the leprechauns and gold coins. These little guys were the hit of the workshop. Below is the card I made for my "Pop-Up Card Challenge"

1 3/8" & 1" Circle punches, Scallop Circle, Small Tag punch and the Word Window punch are used to create the Leprechauns.

I found theses gold Chinese take-out boxes at the Dollar Tree (two in a package) and knew they would be perfect to hold St. Paddy's Day treats of Peppermint Paddies.

This little guy is my own design, he needed a rounded hat to fit on the card. He is made using the 1 3/4" Circle punch and his nose is a 1" circle. The brim of his hat is two word window punches.
I cut out a large circle and then cut off the top to make the pot. The legs are 1" circles, the rim is two word windows and the gold is made using the 3/4" circle punch and More Mustard card stock from Stampin' Up. After I punched the gold, I antiqued the edges using Really Rust in my Stampin' Pastels.

Another Dollar Tree find was the breath mints, they came eight in a package for a dollar and make a cute little teacher gift.

Sing A Song of Spring
The little birds below were made using discontinued Stampin' Up Designer Papers and little wooden birds that I found at Michael's Craft Store. Twelve came in a package and I think I paid around $2.99 or $3.99 for the package.
