I was at Target and the dreaded dollar section got me again!  I saw these paper straws there and had to pick some up!St Patrick’s Day Straw WreathA little over a year ago straw wreaths were all the rage for Christmas, and although I had never made one this screamed spring to me!  I took out a wreath form I had picked up awhile ago in a craft store (just mdf that I spray painted white).

Then I took out my brand spankin new Cricut Explore.  Yep, super lucky owner of this new tool!  It’s available in stores tomorrow, I picked mine up early from HSN.  Using the new design software I created all three icons in a matter of minutes using scrap paper.  Better yet, they were all free with my subscription!

I attached all of the St Patrick’s Day themed die cuts with repositionable adhesive, so I am hoping to switch out those for Easter themed ones soon!  Two for one!
