Saturday we went to the Philadelphia Flower Show and I'll have pictures to share soon once I can glean through the many that I took. Before we left Philly we crossed the street from the convention center and went into the Reading Terminal Market to pick up some minty shamrocks at one of the candy booths.
Now the question was how to package them up, a green and a white one, to share on St. Patrick's Day. Luckily I came across a Friday Freebie from MeGa Stampin Studio. So I (also in this instance known as Princess Origami) went to work.
I cut out a 6 x 6 square of Garden Green cs. Did all the folds and stamped my little shamrocks for the fronts, then I changed up the closure a little.
Instead of having the closure fold over the front and stick together with velcro, I trimmed it up and made a tab.
Once you squish all the folds up (with your surprise inside of course) you can take the tab.....
The twine here is strictly decorative - its not holding anything closed.
Here are some pictures of the display at the flower show from the Ireland Travel Board.
I hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! We are going into the city tonight to see Celtic Woman with our friends. It should be a very enjoyable evening.
