With a little bit of luck!

St Patrick's Day always brings many memories--some of them not so fond--of the days my daughters were involved in Irish dance. It was almost as busy as Christmas! We ran from venue to venue for a few days, performing jigs and reels and more. These days, my March is a little less hectic. Here is a St Patrick's Day treat that just takes a minute to make! It's the same measurements as the chocolate holders here.

Cut your cardstock 5 1/2 x 2. Score at 2 5/8 & 2 7/8. Punch the ends with a Tag Topper Punch--either Angled or Scalloped. Decorate! Here I used the Small Heart Punch to make a shamrock, with a background from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper. If you're freaky, like I am, you can use the Bird Builder Punch for help with the stem. (It was quicker than the 6 attempts I made at free-handing a stem I liked!) Inside is one Ghiradelli square--but what a cute, festive giveaway for St Patrick's Day!
