I Couldn't Help Myself!

I just couldn't get the idea of the St. Patrick's Day
bookmarks out of my head!

Here's what I wanted as opposed to what I ended up with.

I wanted a shamrock shaped paper punch.  Not a one to be found. 
I ended up looking for stickers.

I wanted pot-of-gold stickers.  Not any to be found. 
I ended up with metallic shamrock stickers.

I wanted thin rainbow ribbon to match the pot-of-gold I ended up not getting. 
No thin ribbon, only thick.
So, I used that and also purchased some spools of rainbow color ribbons.

Either way, I love how they came out!  My friends are going be very happy!
I am also happy to report that I am a quick learner. 
When I went for my paint chips, there was no Hot Passion Pink this time! 
By the way, come back tomorrow.  I am posting a give-away for some fun things I think you will like!


  1. Those are awesome! I think I need to make a trip to Home Depot for some paint chips.

  6. where did you get the paint chips? I see the ones you found do not have any writing on the front! Perfect! Thank you!

    1. I think it was Home Depot. They actually did have writing on the front. They were really wide paint chips. I trimmed off the part with the writing.

  7. Thank you for sharing! I featured you over on my blog, Simply Living, today. Please feel free to stop by and check it out!
