St. Patrick's Day will be here soon, and since I come from a long line of Kelley's, Barrett's, McDonough's and Doyle's, well you know I have to celebrate!   The Over the Rainbow Collection is perfect for the holiday with all of those cute gnomes and clovers!  I decided to make a fun explosion box with a little surprise inside... take a peek...

I used this file from Lori Whitlock for the box part of my explosion box.  I decorated the outside of the box with some colorful Doodle-Bugs and flowers from the Odds & End Collection.  For the top I added a rainbow and sun also from the Odds & Ends.

Remove the cover and surprise!  There's a pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow... and a cute little leprechaun of course!  

How cute is that Leprechaun??  I used the Gnomies Doodle Cuts to piece him together with the shamrock paper from the 6x6 pad.  To make my pot of gold, I cut two of the  Pot of Gold-Pot of Gold SVG file, then glued them to either side of a little box (sized about 1.5" cubed).  

All that was left was to decorate the box flaps.  I used a combination of Odds & Ends, Lots O' Luck, Little Lady and Spring Garden Shaped Sprinkles, A Chit Chat sentiment, Limeade Doily and the Bits & Pieces.

And of course... I filled the pot with some gold covered chocolates!  This would make a fun gift for a friend or your sweetie!  Have you created any fun projects with the Over the Rainbow collection?  Make sure that you tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook & Instagram.  We love to see what you make!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
