Kiss Me, I'm Irish!...


Happy St. Patty's Day! When I was a little girl, I always thought St. Patrick's Day was a fun holiday, especially when it landed on a school day and the classroom was just swimming in green. Now that I'm a grownup, it's a little harder to dress for the day to avoid that dreaded pinch, as I don't own a lot of green clothing! So, I thought I'd create some cute pins that I could wear when celebrating.

Using the i-Top and was,y computer-generated sentiments, I created some quick buttons. This one includes some green ribbons. (Bean Tip: if your materials are too thick to fit together inside the i-Top tool, use an i-Bond or a corded glue-gun to adhere everything together.)
This four-leaf "clover" was created with a heart punch and the i-Top. Before attaching the backing, I used the i-Bond to adhere the leaves so that they were perfectly positioned.

Have a SAFE and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
