What’s your favorite part of St. Patrick’s Day? Is it the beer, the food, the general shenanigans? If you’re like me, it’s definitely something else entirely: care packages! From the sassy puns to the festive designs to the fun contents, a St. Patrick’s care package shamrocks my world!
Decorating a St. Patrick’s care package really only requires two things: a fun pun and a few festive images.
St. Patrick’s Care Package Puns
- I’m so lucky to have you
- You shamrock my world
- Kiss me, I’m Irish
- You’re my lucky charm
- Irish you were here
- Irish you a happy St. Patrick’s Day
- It ain’t over ’til it’s clover
- Let’s get lucked up
- Deployment can go luck itself
- You’re the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow
- _____ more months until you get lucky
- You have a heart of gold!
- Baby, you’re magically delicious
There are certain images that go hand-in-hand with St. Patrick’s Day and are perfect to decorate your care package. Things like rainbows, shamrocks, leprechauns, pots of gold and even a beer or two can work well with just about any pun you choose.
I love using shades of green for the flaps and text, but don’t forget that you can incorporate other colors for a bit of a pop. Using white and orange can break up the green and are a nice reference to the Irish flag. White flaps will actually help your other decorative elements (like a rainbow) pop so don’t be afraid to mix it up!
There are so many store-bought elements perfect for your St. Patrick’s Day care package. Take advantage of shamrock die cuts, pre-printed paper and, if you’re channeling your inner leprechaun, a little festive confetti! You can also purchase pre-decorated care package flaps like the ones you see above right from my shop.
