An Alternative St. Patrick's Day Badge?

I love St. Patrick's Day but I hate the tackiness of lots of the badges, decorations and other paraphernalia that goes with it. So this year I have decided to make my own badges and here is the first one. The rose in the centre is made using Sasafrass paper and the rosette behind is just a little ribbon. I backed it with a punched flower and a badge pin et VoilĂ ! I am going to make some more over the next few days, so watch this space.
