Pot of Gold – Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Bring on the GREEN! While it’s not green beer it’s certainly kid friendly. Today we are sharing a fun St. Patrick’s treat that the tricky Leprechauns can leave behind for the little ones on St. Patrick’s day. This pot of gold is not really a pot, or full of gold, but this jar is full of green goodness in the form of gumballs! The lid and tag have been all dressed up using our Gold Glitter card stock. We added a little more gold bling to the lid to really make this pot of gum dazzle. We topped the canning jar off with a tag and now this treat is poppin’!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
