MCT 3D Wednesday time!

Welcome to another edition of 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time. Today's project is a St. Paddy's Day treat. Complete with rainbow and a pot of gold!

I immediately thought of a leprechaun hat when I saw this little storage container!! But I didn't want to make it all green, I wanted the gold candies to show through. So instead I used green glitter. Super simple {and messy, er I mean, sparkly! Yeah, sparkly!} The sentiment and shamrocks are from the newest release, You're My Pot of Gold. I even glittered the sentiment. Go me!

To glitter the shamrock, I ran a small piece of cardstock through the xyron first then glittered it for full coverage before running the die through. Worked great and the glitter stays on really well that way.

I hope you've enjoyed my quick little project today. I was thinking originally of doing these for the grands, but mass producing with glitter would be too much trauma so if you decide to do multiples of these, I'd recommend spray painting the lids green. {Which, in all honesty, I would have done had I had green paint.} Anyhoo....have a good week and go get glittery!!!!

  3. Super cute, Shar! I like how you can see what's inside but it's still sort of a mystery with it not being totally clear. Great project.

  4. Super cute, I know someone who would love this as a centerpiece to her St. Patty's Day Party


  5. every time I put leftovers away I will see a hat :D Very cute and I like the tip to use a Xyron for the glitter...I don't have one and have been avoiding using any glitter. You are so brave!! Great job and love the rainbow!
