After making a total of 5 cards, I've been dying to make something more 3D-ish. And with St. Patrick's Day around the corner I decided to go with a Pot O' Gold.
This was so much fun and felt so good to do. It was designed in Design Studio and is very similar to my Star-Shaped Favor Box and Heart Box.
It measures about 4.5" x 4" x 1.5".
The cauldron is from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge and was cut out in a Chipboard - aka Cereal Box - base first to give the Pot O' Gold Box some sturdiness. I then cut out 2 more cauldrons using Bazzill 'Blackbird' Cardstock. I cut-off the "Gold" from one of the black cauldrons and replaced it with some "Gold" I cut using an old gold-colored gift bag. I love the "shiny" effect the gift bag gave to the "Gold" - almost looks real.
Before assembling it all together, I embossed swirl to the bottom left corner. The swirl is actually a Sizzix Die-Cut that I taped to the back of the cauldron and then ran thru my Cuttlebug twice. Added some white lines with my Signo White Pen - LOVE that pen!
I then added a strip of the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch, Ribbon, a shomrock, and a "Lucky" Banner. The banner is from the Create A Critter Cartridge. I designed the sentiment using Photoshop and a Freebie Digital Mini Kit from Delicious Scraps.
The Pot O' Gold Box has ample room to fit several pieces of candy, toys, coins, etc. I was able to fit 8 pieces of Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Truffles!
I will be entering this Pot O' Gold into the following challenges:
