Are you having a hard time coming up with fresh ideas to celebrate St. Patrick's Day? Today is your lucky day. Our design team came up with the following fun and whimsical ideas to celebrate the luck of the Irish.
1. Use pop up letters to make a statement.
Tracy says "The best part about these letters is they can fold down so you can mail them or store them without taking much room at all." Visit her blog Idea Closet for details.
2. Use a box frame that can be changed each holiday .
Jill says "They are easy to decorate and require little space to put on display" And if you love her glittery frame she will tell you how she made it herself. Brought to You By the Letter J.
3. Create a stunning centerpiece.
It just isn't St. Patty's Day without a good ol' Irishman's lucky hat. Els creates this magnificent display and shares step by step photos of how you can do the same at The Art of Els Schutte.
4. Make little bags of treats for your social group.
Every March it is Sue's turn to host her monthly Bunco group. She says "St Patrick's is a built party theme for my decor!" She knows even grownups like receiving treatbags filled chocolate and peanut butter goodies. Sue's Stamping Stuff.
5. Decorate your happy planner for March.
A lot of us have caught the "Planner Bug" and Shirley is no exception. So for March what better theme than Lucky Bears. She decorated her monthly planner and made a cute pocket page and bookmark. Scrappy Sam Designs.
6. Did I already say decorate your happy planner?
Yes, and like I said, we caught the bug! Why not personalize your planner with what you love. Cyndy uses her mini planner for work and made pocket pages along with inserts. She was happy to be able to use her favorite papers from Graphic 45. Cyndy G Time Made for Me
7. Send a precious photo in a St. Patricks card.
We know grandparents, aunts and uncles would love to get a card for St. Patricks Day with photos of their favorite little people. While you are making one for them, make a second one for yourself to keep. Mel did a video (below-right) showing how she put hers together.
