My Creative Time: Made in Minutes

Hi, today is Made in Minutes over at the My Creative Time Blog!

Also, A Happy St. Paddy's Day to all of you!!

We are to make a project that is simple and can be made in 15 minutes or less.

So here is my project for today.

I created this quick and simple pot of gold for my two boys in 15 minutes. They are going to love it!!

I found the cute little jar at the Dollar Tree. I though it looked like a pot of gold.

1. I first filled it with the sweets. This took about 7 minutes. Sorting the Skittles for the rainbow is why it took so long,

2. I added ribbon and a little shamrock from My Creative Time: I'm a Lucky Girl Stamp Set. Took 3 minutes roughly.

3. I cut out the My Creative Time: Stitched Curly Die and the Curly Label Die. Then I stamped on the sentiment (My Creative Time: You're My Pot of Gold) and the shamrock ornate (My Creative Time: I'm a Lucky Girl Stamp Set) onto the die cut. I then cut a skewer down and adhered the die cut to it. This roughly took 5 minutes.
