St. Patrick's Day at Fantabulous Cricut

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #246 - St.Patrick's Day

This Weeks Sponsor

There will be 3 winners of $7 gift certificates!

Create a project inspired by St. Patrick's Day

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Don't faint, I didn't make a card this week. Shocking, I know! I used a file from Digiplayground for this adorable sticky note holder. You can find the file here. It uploaded to Design Space very easily and cut out great! The shamrocks are a Cricut cut from Celebrate with a Flourish.

Here are the pieces as they initially cut. I had a little oops on the second one from the left and had to re-cut. Not a big deal, just a time issue.

The green solid is Recollections from Michael's, as is the golden orange in the shamrock. The print paper is from Webster's Pages. It's quite thick and heavy which will help with the stability of the holder. I put some dyed seam binding on the front to help bring out the orange and put in an orange note pad from Target. The pen is from Michael's. I put a little shamrock ribbon I had left over from a couple of years ago through the top on the pen to help tie it together. The shamrock pieces have Glossy Accents on them

I snapped a few pictures during the construction process, but this is the only one that turned out. (That whole multi-tasking thing is not always productive.) This shows tape on the left and right edges, which will become the top and bottom of the holder. There is an accordion pleat on one end to help it stand up.

I hope everyone has a great couple of weeks and a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Please take some time to create something even if you don't join the challenge. It's good for you!
