When Irish eyes are smiling

It's probably their day off and they're in the craft room.

My eyes aren't totally Irish, they have a little German and Slovak in them as well but they were smiling all the same while I was playing in the craft room. I was working on a St. Patrick's Day craft that I saw on Pinterest. The tutorial for this project came from The Craft Patch. I didn't do mine exactly like hers but I used what I had and made it my own.


Here's one from a different angle so you can see the different papers better. I didn't have double sided paper so instead I cut twice as many strips for each size and then glued 2 back to back to make a double sided paper. I also used a larger circle on the back for a sturdier base to glue everything down to. Since it would be showing I covered it with glittery green foam. Then I made a smaller circle of the same foam for the front center.


And a close up of the center because it's glittery and I like sparkly.

I just love this Ann! The Craft Patch has a ton of great ideas!! I was just thinking about decorating for St. Patrick's Day today...I was away last night but I need to switch out my Valentine's Day stuff with my St. Patrick's Day stuff. Sounds like tomorrow's project! I adore glitter also...I am pretty sure I was born with it in my veins...
