St. Paddy's Green Mod Podge Gift Package

#StPatricks mod podge gift container | tutorial at I Gotta Create!

We're going green
and it's a perfect fit for

St. Paddy's Day,

and being kind to the planet.


 pretty mod podge packages,

which can also be used as a centerpiece,

aren't over-the-top, yet
they're unique and they catch a
bit 'o sparkle in the "bow of clovers."

Here's how these scrap-busting gift packages
will also help with your Spring cleaning...

{the fun way!}

You simply Mod Podge strips of 
leftover craft papers to an old round 
cardboard food container.
Mine used to hold raisins. 
Oat meal containers work well too.

Now you're really "Going Green"
for gift-giving, if you get
my meaning!

I used silk hydrangeas from a clearance sale.
You can check out the lid tutorial here
for full directions 
and to see another
version of a pretty package.

They look lovely all Spring.
If you don't use them to wrap a gift,
use them to hold little odds and ends 
around the house.
It could even be your Leprechaun trap!

Enjoy your St. Paddy's Day celebrations, 
crafting and DIY projects!

I love the "green" container! I would have never thought of putting glitter on the edges of silk flowers, but I love it!

I will have to give it a try!

Green is my favorite color and every year my girls await a visit from our leprechaun - Shamus O'Toole! I think they would love leaving him a gift like this!
