Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I have to admit - it's one of my favorite holidays! I think I will probably sneak downstairs for more soda bread before I even finish this post! This project is completely inspired and scraplifted from Jana Eubank at the Cricut Circle blog - I was all in a tizzy because I was stumped as to what to do for St. Patty day goodies for my daughter's class. She posted these gable boxes along with some Rolos and she became my crafty hero! As an added bonus these are also my entry for the circle weekly blog challenge.

Front of box:
Back of box:

The details:

These boxes are cut at 3.5 inches and hold about 9 rolos  - they probably could hold more but I don't like to sugar 5 year olds up too much  on a school day so I held back a little. The "Luck" image was also cut at 3.5 inches and for the back I resized another one of the blank layers to fit in the pre-designed marks on the box. I heat embossed the gold image on the back with a Studio G stamp.  The box base and back are Recollections cardstock but the front image layers are both cut out of DCWV adhesive backed paper.

Mmm that was good soda bread! Next up - Guinness! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
