DIY: Modern St. Patrick’s Day

I’m still not sure how a religious celebration in Ireland became the phenomenon of St Patrick’s Day and all the shenanigans that it involves.  Personally I’ve never been one for drinking beer, let alone green beer.  That said, my Big Boy loves it when we celebrate special days e.g. by wearing green and eating lots of green fruits and vegetables.  So, for his sake, I’m embracing St. Patrick’s Day.

I had a look around Michael’s and couldn’t find anything clean and modern that could serve as a class gift.  So, I figured I would DIY a modern St. Patrick’s Day class gift that would suit my preference for clean lines.

I found a baggie of gold chocolate coins in the  dollar section at Target.  I wasn’t sure how I’d use them, but for $1 a bag, I figured I had the start of something.

I then found round 3″ green gift tags also at Target.  They are part of the Spritz party collection and were on sale from $1.44 for a pack of 4, to just $1. Score!

I put the two together, placing the coins off-center using double sided tape. I then took out a ultra fine tip Sharpie pen and wrote out “Lucky”, et voilà!

Clean. Simple. Modern. Just the way I like it. Hope you like it too!

P.S. I figure you can probably achieve a similar look to the gift tag using construction paper or pretty scrapbooking paper and a large hole puncher.
