Upcycled "Luck o' the Irish" gift

Who doesn't need a little Luck o' the Irish? St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays, so I must make and give cute gifts to my friends. This year I am determined that I WILL use all those really cute coffee bottles that we normally put into the recycle bin. I have been collecting them for a while - the shape is perfect for upcycling into a container filled with sweet treats. Just add a cute tag and a few embellishments!

For this handmade gift, I misted white letters with my favorite shade of green spray ink and let them dry. I recently discovered that using my mini flat iron - the one I normally use to iron ribbon - is the perfect tool to adhere small iron-on letters to paper. The dry heat of the flat iron works wonderfully to adhere to letters to paper without warping it.

JOY Embroidered letters can be found at your local craft stores in a variety of sizes, colors and fonts.
