Irish Blessings Treat Box

Having a small bit of Irish blood (from my grandmother) is something I am proud of and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is almost as fun as celebrating Christmas.  I made this little treat box for this week’s Color My Heart Dare and plan to make more to give to family and friends this week.   At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this project.

Paper Needed: (2)2¾”  x 2¾” B&T Paper (I used Hello Lovely), (2)2¾” x 1″ B&T (I used Hello Lovely), 3″ x 3″ Cardstock (I used New England Ivy), 3″ x 3″ Cardstock (I used Fern), 2¾”  x 2¾” Cardstock (I used Fern), 2¾”  x 2¾” Gold Glitter Paper, 2″ x 2″ White Daisy Cardstock

Techniques used while creating this project: 

  • Our retired Art Philosophy cartridge has this box you can cut out to make this project. I found a package of these five-inch boxes at my local dollar store, so I choose to buy them to save a little time. My measurements are based on the box I purchased.
  • The Clover was cut from our Flower Market Cricut cartridge at 2¾” high. I cut the background out of New England Ivy Cardstock, and the leaves out of Fern Cardstock. The leaves were bent in half then adhered to the background using Liquid Glass. NOTE: The gem I used in the center of the Clovers has been retired.
  • The Scalloped Circle is cut at 2¾” from Fern cardstock, then backed with a 2¾” Gold Glitter background layer to give the appearance of gold gems around the circle.
  • The Circle was cut at 1¾” from White Daisy cardstock.  I used the writing feature on my Cricut machine with Kunstler Script to create the sentiment.  You could also use a stamped images.

  1. Sometimes buying little boxes is way more cost effective than cutting them 🙂 I think your box is adorable, I love the layered clover. Thanks for playing along with the challenges at Color My Heart Color Dare.

  2. Another great treat box, both are very pretty, and I’ll have to look at our Dollar Store…sure does save a lot of work making the boxes, and either way they turn out great. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare this week, and please come back Friday for our new challenge…maybe some more treat box ideas.

  3. Lovely boxes, Carrie! I especially love the 3D shamrock. Thanks for sharing them with us at the Color Dare blog–we always enjoy viewing your work!
