Pot O' Gold Collection: Paper Shamrock Shadow Box by Tya Smith

Hi there Doodlebug fans -it's Tya here and it is my turn to share with you my Pot  o' Gold project. I decided to add a little "lucky" decor to my walls  for St. Patrick's Day with this fun shadow box. I am using the 12x12 Black Shadow Box for my project.
This project was totally inspired by something I have had on my St.Patrick's Day Pinterest board for a while now so I was really excited to give this technique a try. I followed this tutorial from The Craft Patch and it was so quick and easy which is the name of the game when it comes to paper crafting in my book :) 
For my paper strips I used (7) 2x12 inch Grasshopper Swiss Dot Petite Print, (7) 2x10 Lucky Stripes papers and (7) 8x12 Good Luck papers.  After I got all the paper strips glued together I added a couple of limeade doilies to the front of the shamrock. I cut the "Love" sentiment from one of the squares on the 4x4 square pattern paper sheets. I pop dotted the sentiment up for some added dimension.
I placed a sheet of Clover Patch pattern paper in the background of my shadow box.  I also added a strip of Lots of Luck Washi Tape to the top and bottom of my shadow box. I then hot glued the entire shamrock to the background paper.

To decorate the shamrock, I added a couple of cute Leprechaun girl and boy stickers from the Icon Sticker sheet as well as a cute little flower, round shamrock sticker and the pot of gold and a few gold coins. I also added a shamrock Sprinkles shape and a couple of matte Bright Sprinkles to spice it up a bit. Aren't the little leprechauns so cute? 

I loved making this project! It went together so fast and it makes me so happy to see the cute smiling faces of the Leprechaun boy and girl! Hopefully I have inspired you to make one of these fun shadow boxes for your own St. Patty's Day decor - thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crafting!
