I am also using this for the   Fantabulous Cricut Blogspot Challenge # 51

Challenge #4.
  This week's theme is " St. Patrick's Day" .  So, create a card, layout or project  and post by Sunday, March 13th, 11:59pm (EST).  The winner will be selected and entered into our monthly drawing.  March's prize will be "ROCK PRINCESS" cricut cartridge!

This project was made from  an empty Finish dishwasher tab container.
I first made holes in the top with the crop-a -dial. Then I took 3/16th inch dowels and cut them down to 12"length. I made various sizes of the shamrock from Paper doll dress up cartridge. Two images were needed  for each dowel. After gluing tissue paper to the dowels I then, sandwiched the dowel between the shamrocks. I covered the container with green paper. I cut out the fence from PDDU @2 1/2" I needed two sheets to go all the way around. I then cut out the pot of gold at 6 inches and and used stickles for the gold. I used Mrs. Grossman's stickers for the rainbow. I designed the lettering from Gypsy wanderings on the gypsy at 1 inch high and welded all the letters together. The flag was made from a white piece if card stock ,cut at 21/2 by 8” then, folded in half around the dowel and glued together. A piece of green and orange card stock were cut at 2 ½” by 1 5/8” and glued at opposite ends of the white paper
The fence was cut at 2 1/2" high I needed to cut two, to go all the way around the container.
On the back there are 5 1-inch pots-of-gold on the fence, underneath a 5" shamrock which was colored around the edges with Copic markers to give dimension and there is a strip of clover cut at 2" that goes up both sides under the fence. This was a real fun project. I used my baby bug, gypsy and expression for this project.
