St. Patricks Day Treats - Lori Whitlock Design Team Projects

Hi everyone - its Tya here to share with you a fun set of St. Patrick's Day treats just in time for all your little leprechaun festivities coming up. Lori has a darling new St. Patrick's Day Digital Collection over on Snap Click Supply that I used to spruce up a simple cupcake and a soda bottle. I used the Print and Cut feature on my Silhouette on both of these projects - it's one of my favorite things to do with my Silhouette and Lori's files. Here is what I did-
 First off - let's start with the Cupcake Stand - here is a quick tip for you. As you can see, the original cut file had just a simple scallop edge. I wanted to make the cupcake stand a little more festive , so I went in and found a shamrock from one of my favorite Lori cut files and went in and replaced the circles in the scallop edge with the shamrocks. The wonderful thing about owning a Silhouette is that I can mix and match and customize my cut files to fit a theme or holiday. It was simply a matter of ungrouping the orginal shape, deleting the circles and replacing it with my resized shamrocks instead. Super easy and think of all the different shapes you could substitute - hearts for Valentines Day or stars for the 4th of July - the possibilities are so fun!
Here are a few close ups -
 Check out the cute cupcake wrap and here is a better photo of the shamrocks that I added instead of the scallop circles.
 I did a print and cut of the Kiss Me I'm Irish sentiment and made it into a cupcake topper with the help of  a scallop circle and a some button and twine. Add a green Pixie from Doodlebug Design - and you have a custom made cupcake topper!
Next up I decided to grab a green bottle of Sprite and add a bottle label and a custom sentiment to the label that I made with the beautiful Vintage Font for the Shamrock Soda. I added a polka dot shamrock with an orange button and some twine to finish it off. I also added a scallop border punch to the top and bottom edges of the sentiment.

So that's all there is to my projects. I love taking basic everyday items like cupcakes and Soda bottles and using my Lori Whitlock shapes to fancy them up and make them fun and festive! Thanks for stopping by!
