Pot Of Gold

Hello everyone!  Over the last couple weeks there have been some changes at SVG Attic.  Most importantly, it has switched owners.  SVG Attic is now owned by Mike and Kenzie Daley who are the creators of SnapDragon Snippets.  They really have wonderful designs available in the Silhouette store, so head over there to check them out!

For this week's project I combined the Pot O' Gold file by SnapDragon Snippets with the Go Green set from SVG Attic to make this darling St. Patrick's Day decoration.
I sized the Pot O' Gold file so that the biggest piece was 11.5" to make it as large as I could.  Next I sized the shamrock border from the Go Green set to 0.5" tall.  I cut the base from green adhesive vinyl and the top layer out of gold glitter vinyl.  Using vinyl made the layering and adhering to the pot a breeze!  I used 3.5 lengths of the border to go all around the top.  I also saved some of the negative shamrock cuts out of the gold vinyl for embellishments for the bottom of the pot.
 Around the middle of the pot, I wrapped jute ribbon first, then added embroidery floss in the colors of the rainbow for a pop of color.  The shamrock is from the Go Green set.  I added a twine bow and the stamped sentiment from My Craft Spot's tiny tags set to finish it off.
 At the bottom I added another shamrock that I cut out, several green sequins, the gold vinyl shamrock cuts that I saved from the border and tiny dots of gold glitter.
 Best of all, the pot also opens up so it can hold even more treats!

UPDATE:  You can now find the Pot O' Gold (and many other cute files) on SVG Attic in the set called Charmingly Green!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

  7. Hi Beth! I always LOVE LOVE LOVE your sweet cards and creations, and I'm always SO incredibly grateful for every single entry you share at Word Art Wednesday, and I hope that you will always continue to play along with us. I love your creativity and participation. I also know that you love good challenge blogs, and I wanted to tell you about another one. I'm not on the Design Team, but I used to be. They just started holding challenges, and they haven't had many entries (so chances of winning are good). It's called Classy Cards 'N Such (www.classycardsnsuch, and I hope you will check it out. You need to use any item sold in their store to play along, but that's easy cuz they sell a lot of things that most crafters own. I hope you will play along and share your awesome creations there. The prizes are always really nice, too.

  20. Just came from Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe and your wonderful 3D Pot of Gold won Ch56 Rainbows. Congrats. Like the 3D creation. I do not have a Silhouette. A friend of mine has a Silhouette and likes it a lot. I have as Cricut. I read that you sized the creation to have the largest piece 11.5". Was curious as to overall size of this once assembled?

    1. Hi Melissa,
      Thanks for you wonderful comment! The finished measurements of the pot are 4.5" tall and 5" diameter.

  21. Wow - great project. Love the coloured fibres, all the shamrocks and the bling.

  22. This is a really great project, I love the embellishments and all the effort you put into it was certainly worth it as it looks great. St Patrick's day is always so much fun, I might just celebrate it this year.
