St. Paddy's Riley Treat

I made this little treat box SO long ago, but saved it to show you all today so you could send a little luck of the Irish along to one of your friends. I colored Riley with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol with blending stumps. The box is an acetate sheet folded with the top and bottom of the box made with card stock. It was SUPER simple to create. It is filled with caramel DOVE chocolates that just happened to match perfectly. I bought them thinking they were gold and then when I opened it I was so excited because they not only were also green, but the right color green! Holy lucky!!! I used diamond stickles on Riley's pot of gold to make it shimmer! (see close up photo for detail)

Stamps: Shamrock Riley (Hanna Stamps) Paper: Glorious Green (SU!), More Mustard (SU!), Solar crest White (Neenah) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Accessories: Sewing machine, black thread, acetate, red line sticky tape, diamond stickles, dove chocolates, mustard grosgrain ribbon, prismacolor pencils, gamsol, blending stumps

How cute is that? I have a bunch of St. Paddy's Day stamps - may have to add this one too. That Riley - gotta luv him! The box and candy look pretty tasty too. Thanks for sharing.
