Lucky Printable: Somewhere Over the Rainbow

When I saw this cute project
my "cousin" Cory made for Valentine's Day
over at Sometimes I Craft Myself,
I knew I wanted to make something with buttons.I didn't get around to making anything for Valentine's day
and so then I had this great idea to make a button rainbow for
St. Pat's day.

But I didn't realize how many buttons it would take,
and I didn't have enough.
Lame.
And because I'm impatient
and didn't want to wait for more buttons,
I had the grand idea to digitally scrapbook one!

So I did!
And then I printed it at Costco,
put it in my seasonal frame,
added a ribbon shamrock,and now I have a fun St. Pat's decoration!
And because I love you all so much,
I'm sharing the printable with you!
You can download it HERE.
Inside that file you'll find a zipped file
with a 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10 size.

If you make one, I'd love to see it!
Happy St. Pat's!

Julie E said...

I really really like this printable. The first thought I had when I saw it on Crationary was "I totally want to make this, but with real buttons," then I clicked over and saw your inspiration. How funny. You went from buttons to paper and I was thinking of going paper to buttons. :)

Charlene said...

Please, please, please post how you did that adorable ribbon shamrock. I'd love to make some hairclips for my daughter!!!

Jamie said...

Hi, Just wanted to thank you for inspiring me to make two shamrocks.. one out of buttons and the other sequins. You can see them here:
