St Patricks Day Lucky Shamrock

Lucky To Have Great People In My Life!
Looking around for a sweet treat to give to the kids teachers and I remembered Brenda Quintana's awesome Hershey's Kiss Holders... she has several darling tutorials on her site, but I thought the shamrock was fitting for St. Patricks Day! She has two versions, the 3-leaf and a 4-leaf clover. To me, St Patricks is all about luck and whats luckier than a four leaf clover?!? 

Brenda has a great cut & score tutorial!! Link at the end of this post!
This shows my last 4 stages of assembly
I adjusted Brenda's instructions a little bit for the sake of having a longer "stem" - I was originally going to stamp a message directly onto the stem, but then I concocted the little tag instead. I used a 1" x 11" piece of cardstock, with notches cut at 5.5" and then 2.25" from each end. I like the look of the longer stem, myself. The tag I made uses the Modern Label Punch, and I used two stamps in Gumball Green and Calypso Coral with a Basic Jewel Rhinestone accent. One is the little shamrock from the (very) Retired stamp set So Happy For You Sale-a-bration set (2012); the other is half a stamp LOL from the really very useful set Occasions Alphabet (page 134 of your catalog or item #128688 HERE), its the bottom part of the letter L, I just inked half the stamp. 
And yes, I destashed a bit to use up my old Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral sparkle ribbon. I was sad to reach the end of the spool on the green, but such is life! Love it and Use it!!  

Thanks for looking,
