ABC, Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! It's Anything But A Card Day at Catch The Bug, and I have a treat holder for you today that I'm calling  St. Patrick's Day Pockets of Gold!

I used Edward Elephant Happy St. Patrick's Day  from Bugaboo Stamps to decorate the front. I coloured him with copics. Then layered him on glittery gold cardstock from the $ store and early espresso.

 I got this idea from a kittystamp at SCS she posted this awesome treat holder, here's  her Blog Post with a tutorial. I altered it just a bit, I started with a piece 4.25" x 11" and scored in the same place she did.

Instead of using treat bags, I made 2 pockets with designer paper (this works best with paper weight). Sorry my photo isn't the best, but I started with a piece 8.5" x 8" then score at 2" and 6" along the 8.5" side. 

 . Fold on the score lines and use double sided tape to seal. This puts the seam in the middle so you won't see it.
Then score down the middle at 4" and add double sided tape down the center of the middle and on the outside of each pocket to glue inside the cardstock holder.
You can see in the photo below how it looks when together but open.
 To make the cards for the pockets. I used a piece of cardstock 4.25" x 3 5/8". I used the SU envelope punch board for the notches at the top. Then I used double sided tape to glue down the chocolate coins.
What a fun easy way to give a gift and or a treat!

Have a Great Day!
