2/21 Fancy Favor Leprechaun

Last year, I was blog surfing and came across this post HERE by Mercedes Weber and I was so enchanted by it . . . that I saved it in my March "to do" file for almost a year! My customers will be making this Fancy Favor Leprechaun favor box at my Big Shot class this coming Tuesday. Isn't he just the cutest?

I used the Fancy Favor Die as the box base and the Scallop Circle. His sweet little face is cut from the Circle Scissors Plus. I used the 3/4" Circle Punch for his nose. A sponge dauber highlights the nose and cheeks with tone on tone color. (Blush Blossom ink on Blush Blossom paper.) The googlie eyes are attached with Mini Glue Dots and the mounth is drawn on with the narrow end of the Basic Black Journaler. The top hat is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2 " with the Tag Corner punch accented the corners. The bottom of the top hat is flush with the bottom of the brim. The brim is 3/4" x 4" and corner rounded. The handle is 2" x 11" and attached with Earth Elements brads. You can see a side view below.
