Deflecto for St. Patty’s Decor

3/01/2018 | Lynn Lilly
It is hard to get by St. Patty’s Day without getting at least a pinch!  It is an often overlooked opportunity to create some fun!  I enjoy having a special dinner for the family or a party style lunch for my friends.  Deflecto products offer endless possibilities for decorating for any event or holiday.  Read on and I will tell you about my ideas.

Deflecto:  Stackable Storage Cube, Standard, 6″ x 6″ x 6″ #350401CR; Supergrip Sign Holder #20002CR; Clear Frame, 4″ x 6″ #597501CR
Cardstock:  white, green, black, Kraft
Vinyl adhesive film:  apple green, polished metal, 12″ sheet
Die Cut Machine
Die or punch:  heart, 1″, 2″
6″ green scalloped circle
3″ kraft scalloped circles
2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″prints with a St. Patty’s Day saying (I found a print on the internet)
3″ x 3-1/2″ rectangle of green cardstock (for border)
St. Patty’s Day sign print-out; 4″ x 6″
Plastic gold coins
Anything else to make your party a success!

1.  Find a St. Patty’s print on the internet, size it to 4″ x 6″ and print out on white cardstock.  Trim excess paper and slide between the panels of the frame.  Cut a 6″ scalloped circle and set/adhere the frame to the circle.
2.  Vinyl:  Cut out 1″ hearts.  You will need four hearts for each clover.  Save scraps to cut the stems from.  Peel the release paper from the back of one vinyl heart and adhere to the frame.  Repeat with three more hearts to complete each clover.  Cut a stem from a scrap and adhere it to the clover as shown.  Make sure to place them exactly where you want them.
3.  Center and adhere the printed saying to the slightly larger green rectangle to create a border. Place the rectangle into the sign holder. 
4.  Cut out 3″ scalloped circles from Kraft paper.  Remove the release paper from the sign holder, center and adhere to one Kraft circle.  Repeat for how-ever many you are making.
5.  Cut more hearts from the green vinyl, slightly larger or smaller for each clover, depending on the size you want it to be.  Adhere “clovers” to the Cube Organizer as shown.  Adhere a rhinestone to the center of each clover.
6. Bonus idea:   I used the vinyl hearts to decorate small Kraft paper bags with clovers.  I create 3-D paper decorations and I made the leprechauns to use as bag closures.  I sell these in my Etsy shop at PriMarilynly Paper.
Add some festive tableware and some good food and all you need is something green to drink and lots of good company!  I hope you found some inspiration here today and enjoy St. Patty’s Day!
Make sure to take the time to enjoy the small blessings along the way and,
Live Life with a Flourish!
