Hello there! It’s Mendi here today with some super fun treat ideas to share with your favorite people this St. Patrick’s Day! I have been holing onto these cute little clear tubes waiting for just the right project and was delighted to discover Rolos wrapped in gold foil are the perfect fit for them!
I wanted to dress them up with some tags and the Mini Kraft Pocket tags from the Home+Made collection were just what I needed! I love how they included the gold accents, gave me room to decorate the front and have the space inside to slip a tag telling my family how lucky I am to have them!
To embellish my tag I used a variety of cutting files purchased through the Silhouette store (linked below in my supply list). I love how this little pot of gold looks cut from the gold foil cardstock. Yellow jewels felt like the perfect finishing touch!
What would St. Patrick’s day be without a four-leaf clover? For this embellishment I thought it would be fun to add some bounce and an element of surprise so I created a homemade “wobble spring” using just some simple supplies I had on hand.
To create my spring, I followed these easy steps:
Step 1: Wind a fine gauge wire around a small straw or a pencil you have on hand.
Step 2: If you have created enough for more than one wobbler element, clip them into smaller increments.
Step 3: Depending on the size of your embellishment that this needs to hide behind, punch (2) .75″ or 1″ circles. Layering the two circles together, poke a small hole in the center of the circles.
Step 4: You should now have something that looks like this (for two wobblers).
Step 5: Wind the spring around the hole in the center of one circle and tape in place. Repeat for both ends of the spring.
Step 6: Your completed wobbler will look like this from the side view.
Step 7: I cut a second shamrock from contrasting patterned paper to lend a fun look when the top shamrock wobbles. Adhere the bottom of the wobbler spring to the center of your embellishment or desired surface.
Step 8: Add adhesive to the top of the wobbler and place your finished embellishment on top. That’s all there is too it! Super easy and really fun! 🙂
This fun little element would be perfect for cards or the top of a present as well! I hope I’ve inspired you to tell your friends and family just how lucky you are to have them this St. Patrick’s Day with some treats of your own! 😉
