Stamp Camp Project

 Time for my favorite holiday - St. Patrick's Day!!! I think 'tis the wearin' o the green on that day that I look forward to.  Anyway, I loved Sheila's idea with the toilet paper rolls and have been saving mine for this project - no card for me this month.  Instead my fellow "campers" will get a treat for my favorite holiday!
 I started off with Stampin Up's new St. Patrick's Day stamp, and stamped multiple copies using bronze ink.
 Time for the toilet paper rolls I'd been hoarding away for this project, and green chocolates that I put into little bags to go inside the roll.
 In looking at the stamped design, I decided to switch it up a bit, and punch out the center. I added some ribbon, and adhered the "ring" portion to a scallop punched background.  Then I popped off the shamrock and added a green brad.
 I decided to cover the rolls with patterned paper, put a strip of coordinating paper around it, and then the "medallion" on as the final decoration.  I did find that a regular stapler worked better to hold the cardboard together, but I also discovered that I could just as easily make a tube out of heavy weight paper, and I did not need the toilet paper roll at all.
Hope everyone enjoyed their treats!!

  1. OK...I love how you did the medallion--very clever and I love these little goodies! I have yet to make one of those little containers and I think you might have just inspired my Easter design-already made my St. Pat's goodies-look for an upcoming post! Thanks for sharing. I love them!
