A Touch of the Green for St. Patricks' Day

Hello my friends,

Top of the morning to you!


These small cut-outs came from some vintage Ellen H. Clapsaddle postcards.

I love her artwork!

Save to your computer and resize if needed.

My figures are about 2 1/2''.

Print and cut to a smaller size, then glue to cardstock.







'Fussy' cut with small scissors.

That just means with detail!

(fingernail scissors work great!)



I used 1 figure, 1 old spool, 1 toothpick,

glue,  a pinch of glitter, and some greenery and tulle ribbon.


I glued a tooth pick on the backside and the flag pole.

Added a touch of fine glitter.

I just poked everything into the spool hole!



He has a mischievous look!




A sweet face!



I don't have many 'green' colored decor items, when I found this spice rack

while out thrifting I had it get it !

You would have too if I tell you the price-

ask me in the comments if you want to know.

It made a nice vignette for now-




Later I found a glittery chenille stem in my Christmas stash.

I folded in half and formed at small heart, then another

on each side.






Then poked it behind my figure.


With or without, use what you have.



Happy St. Patricks' Day!

      oh that's so funny. It could be yours :)
      I originally thought I would plant succulents in the square pots.
      One is cracked, but I got the set for $3.50
