Vintage Saint Patty’s Day Treat

It’s almost Saint Patrick’s Day! This day brings back so many memories for me. You see, contrary to my last name (O’Malley),  I don’t have a drop of Irish blood in me. But, I feel like I do. (I married a guy who is 100% Irish.) And for eight years, I attended St. Patrick’s School on Long Island. I wore a green plaid uniform and green socks every day of my grade school years. And most of my friends were from large Irish-Catholic families. Our town has a huge parade and, being from the school, I marched in it every March 17! So, I guess I’m an honorary Irish-woman. 🙂

That’s why I was so excited when I saw the St. Patrick’s Day Vintage Tag Kit. There are so many fun little finds in it. I decided to create a sweet treat basket and tag.

This was so fun to pull together. I found the green Hershey Kisses at Target. Oh my, Creme de Menth kisses are the best, by the way!!!

I created the rosette using some of the vintage crepe paper and added some Platinum Stickles around the edges. This is my favorite color to use on vintage projects and I’m so excited that it’s now in the VSM store.

To create the tag, I layered lots of the paper goodies that came in the kit. I made another rosette and topped it with that cute shamrock. I also added one of the vintage stickers.

There’s still lots of goodies left, so I’ll probably make a few more tags. They are always great for teacher gifts.

Thanks for stopping by today and for sharing my Saint Patrick’s Day memories with me. ~Anabelle
