St Paddy's Day Clover Treat Basket!

Hello Crafty friends,

Today I'm sharing a Clover Treat Basket which is free to download over at Dreaming Tree. Not only is this file free, but if you make this great, easy-peasy file with your cutting machine and upload it to their website, you'll receive a $2.99 Dreaming Tree gift card - how awesome is that!?!
And a BONUS on top of that is, if you like Dreaming Tree's Facebook page and they reach 15000 fans they will be giving away a cutting machine!! Share this with all your crafty friends. (Please read the rules and terms and conditions on their website for this offer!).

This is my final version of the Clover Treat Basket creation:
So I had an idea to include a rainbow that I recently downloaded from Miss Kate Cuttables but I had to change my layout thought after I'd cut it - my printer brought the colours out so vividly but my Silhouette machine didn't like my white cardstock and it didn't cut very nicely.
I used the dark green paper from the Craft Smith paper pad for my base and a nice double sided patterned paper from my never ending stash for the rest of the cutting file.

I've included some additional photos of the treat box showing it from different angles.  
I gave the clover leaf on top of the handle a 3d effect and raised it with a foam dot as well as added a smaller patterned clover leaf on top.
I added some gold sequins just to break the plain green of the top clover.
I added a patterned clover to the back of the treat box - please excuse the bad lighting - I told my hubby and son they could have the chocolate as I'd finished taking photos and I realised I'd forgotten the back view so this was a 'quick give that back' moment to take my last photo.

I hope you enjoyed my blog and join in creating a Clover Treat Basket of your own.

Thank you for visiting today!

Happy Crafting!
