The Sisterhood GDT- Blessed

Hey everyone! Here is my first project of the month as a Guest Designer for The Sisterhood of Crafters! So super excited :D The new challenge is for Saint Patrick's Day! Being Irish, this is one of my favorite holidays! I made a little wall decor, but unfortunately the frame didn't have a hook to hang it horizontally, so it's my "mantle" decor {but unfortunately we don't actually have a mantle, so it's actually on our server in the dining room, hehe}.

Anyhoo, I thought I'd give a lil DIY so you could create your own wall decor too!
It's pretty simple- I made mine in about 20 mins!
{1} Cut out tags- I used my tag die from sizzix
{2} Run the tags through your embosser- I used two of my Cuttlebug embossing folders
{3} Cut out some shamrocks- I used a die, but you could use clip art or hand cut these too!
{4} Tie some bows through the hole at the top of each tag- I used three different ribbons
{5} Add your letters- mine are chipboard alphas that I got on clearance at Michaels
{6} Add your embellies- I used some stickers, large shamrock brad, buttons, and gems
{7} Attach your "hanging" ribbon across the back of your frame
{8} Attach your shamrocks to mini clothespins, and clip tags to the hanging ribbon
{9} Step back and enjoy! :)


And here's the rest of my "mantle," which I plan on adding to hopefully in the next week :) For the record, the playing card is a picture of the Cliffs of Moher on Ireland's coast. The deck it's from features different images from all around Ireland- and I bought it in Ireland! :) Also, the cute puppy in the corner has a shamrock on his rump and a bright green collar :) Oh, and the Snoopy sticker in the frame corner says "I'm one-eighth Irish setter" hehe, gotta love The Peanuts!
Be sure to check out The Sisterhood blog to see the other DT and GDT's fabulous projects- and feel free to play along with our Saint Patrick's Day challenge!! :D
