St. Pat's Top Hat Treat Box

Hi friends!   Well - Valentine's is behind us now as we march onward to the next holiday - St. Patrick's Day!  Once again - some friends and I have a sale at our church for this holiday - so I'm always looking for fun new St. Pat's items.

And I found just such a fun item over in Adela's template shop - Creations by AR!
 I just love these wonderful top hats -  slightly larger at the top than at the brim - sort of like the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland aren't they??!!!     I actually combined two of Adela's templates on my project -  the Hat's Off Template (which is actually on sale right now for $3.00!) and the newly released It's Bow Easy Template. (this template is also just $3.00)    All of Adela's templates come in 3 formats - PDF (to print and cut out), SVG and PDF (for machines like the Silhouette Cameo)
 The top of the hat lifts off to reveal  a roomy little area to hide some treats!
I used a dark forest green and a bow of brushed gold card stock on this hat although the bow looks kind of 'blah gray' in the pic - IRL it's a little more shimmery and vibrant!
This hat is made with an olive green and Summer Sunrise card stock for the bow.

Here are 3 more color versions - with the Happy St. Patrick's Day sentiment I tucked into the hat band!

I''ve made 6 of these for our sale - and I'll put some sort of 'green' treat inside -   I think people are going to go crazy for these - I know I did!!

I'll be back on Thursday with the rest of the Design Team to show a cute new spring time template from Creations by AR - hope you'll stop by then!

Stamps:  Celtic Heritage - Waltzingmouse
 Paper:  Green's  - Prismatics, brushed gold - SU, Summer Sunrise, True Black - PTI,
Accessories:  Scor Tape, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, Silhouette Cameo, Hat's Off and It's Bow Easy Templates - Creations by AR, modern label punch.
