Bitten By The Bug 2 --- Use A Shamrock

Happy Monday!

Are you guys ready for another fun challenge that starts today over at

In honor of St. Patrick's Day being tomorrow, this week is all about showing us your projects that feature a Shamrock from one of your Cricut Cartridges. 

I decided to make a little treat bag to hold some candy in to give to someone tomorrow.

I used my Gift Bag Punch Board to make my little bag. I then added a little scallop border all the way around the top by punching a thin strip with a scallop border punch. I cut my shamrocks out of the Celebrate With Flourish Cricut Cartridge and layered it onto some circles and added a few sequins for a bit more sparkle. Instead of adding handles to my bag, I simply threaded the gold ribbon through the holes and tied it closed with a bow in the front of the bag. I think it came out super cute and I love all that gold sparkle!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it! 

Don't forget to head over to the Bitten By The Bug blog to see all the shamrock projects my Design Team sisters created! After you take a peek at their creations, I hope you will create a project and join us in the challenge! I would love to see what you make :) 

I hope you have a great crafty day!
