I just found a great craft deal site:
What is Crafty Steals?
Act fast or you will miss out, once an item is gone, it's gone.
|Outside of box|
|Inside of box - gold, paper, glitter|
I knew the moment I received my package in the mail from UHU that I wanted to play off the idea of a pot of gold, given the theme of St. Patti’s Day. I began by painting the box with antique white on the outside and gold on the inside. I then lined the inside with the green ribbon like paper (using the UHU glue stick) that I had punched with clovers so that the gold would show through. For an added sparkle, I took one of the foam clovers provided and applied green glitter.
On the outside, I stamped the bottom half with stamps in a variety of green and gold to give it a visual texture similar to grass. Then, I applied the foam clovers to the top and let them trail off one side.
The Uhu glue, green paper, foam clover pieces and the star box were provided free of charge from Saunders.
Uhu glue can be found at http://www.gluewithuhu.com/
