Our first Blog Hop Theme of 2023 is Sweet Treats!
My festive St. Patrick’s Day Treats were inspired by the Jan-June 2023 Mini Catalog. Page 8 of the mini catalog I noticed these cute treats created with the Country Floral Lane Suite. These cute treats can be recreated for any occasion and they are quick to make.
I have been waiting for a St. Patrick’s Day stamp set, the Luck Clover Bundle first bundle I put on my mini catalog shopping list. It was perfect for creating these treat holders for St. Patrick’s Day or to just wish someone good luck!
To create the wrappers I started with a piece of Granny Apple Green Cardstock cut to 5-1/2″ x 6-3/4″. On the long side score the cardstock at 2″, 2-1/4″, 4-1/2″, 4-3/4″. Then I stamped the clovers in Granny Apple Green along the top and bottom edges. I used Tear & Tape to adhere the wrapper closed. The Dandy Designs DSP layer of the wrapper is cut to 4-1/2″ x 6-3/4″, for this layer of the wrapper I didn’t make any score lines, I just wrapped it around the cardstock layer and adhered again with Tear & Tape.
To decorate the font of the wrappers I used Basic White Cardstock and die cut the scalloped circle with the All That Dies and stamped clovers on them in Granny Apple Green. I stamped each of the sentiments in Granny Apple Green and snipped them out with my paper snips. I adhered them with Mini Glue Dots.
I stamped the large clovers in Granny Apple Green using the Stamparatus. I prefer to stamp with Stamparatus on larger solid images works better for me than using a clear block, this way I can re-ink and stamp the image if it’s not clear. I punched them out with the Lucky Clover Punch and added them to the wrapper with Mini Glue Dots.
I can’t resist adding a little bling to my projects and for these fun treats I added a few Iridescent Pastel Gems. Before slipping in the chocolate bar I wrapped a piece of the Burlap Ribbon from the Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo pack around the bar. Then tied them at the top with a piece of White Crinkle Seam binding colored with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends.
