St. Patty's Swap

When Vivian announced a Secret Leprechaun swap I knew I had to be in, so I signed up first thing.  Then, I began to panic because I don't really celebrate St. Patrick's Day and I certainly don't have any decorations for it.

Once I settled down and started thinking about what I would make for this swap, I really had fun.  The person I'm sending this to doesn't know yet that I'm her Secret Leprechaun.  Here is a tag I made to send along with a couple goodies.

This little hanging ornament  turned out kind of sweet.  It measures approximately 5x7 and is a burlap "pillow" with a decoupaged sheet of music, an Irish girl, and some other embellishments on the front.

I'm happy with the way this banner turned out, and I hope I have time to make myself one just like it.  It was hard to photograph so in the picture below, I took a closeup of the letter L.

My Secret Leprechaun was Kim K.  Kim and I had swapped Valentine's a year or so ago.  She's a speedy Leprechaun and my package of St. Patty's goodness arrived over the weekend.  It was all so festively wrapped which is part of the fun!

This frame with the 3d Leprechaun is just the sweetest thing!  What a great idea.

She also made this cute Leprechaun in a cloche.  Don't you just love this?

Kim also included a fun shamrock necklace, some St. Patty's napkins and some gold coins.  Thanks Kim!  And thanks to Viv for hosting this fun little swap.  :)
