St. Patrick's Day Goodies

Happy Thursday!  I'm so excited - I finally have the Petal Cone Die!!  I couldn't wait to use it and thought the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge this week was the perfect time!  So.... here's what I came up with:

I wanted to make a couple of cute little St. Patty's Day treats and Stampin' Celebration gave me just the inspiration I needed!  I cannot take credit for coming up with this little box design on my own.  I found this idea from a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Angie Juda.  I love her website and she even has a step-by-step video on how to make this box using the Petal Cone Die.  You can see it here.  Isn't it cute?  I plan to fill it with some chocolates!  I twirled and crimped some paper for the inside.  (Although I could have had my kids do this.  They think the crimper is the coolest tool ever.  I have to be careful not to leave it out or every piece of paper on my desk will be crimped.  Hopefully, Bellsouth won't mind that crimped bill - hee hee.) 

Products Used:
Stamps:  So Happy For You (free Sale-a-Bration set!), Afterthoughts (free Hostess Set), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Old Olive
Paper:  Old Olive, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Brights Patterns DSP
Punches:   Decorative Label Punch, Large Oval
Other:  Big Shot, Petal Cone Die, Crimper, Dimensionals

Here's this week's photo that inspired me:
