St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Treat Holder

This cute leprechaun comes from Lettering Delights “Luck of the Irish”.

Mini M&M’s fit great in the clear tube.

I had a great time making this!  It’s a cute holder for a small gift like this tube filled with candy.  You could also use it as a place holder at a table.  I think it would be awesome on the desk of a co-worker, student or teacher.  It’s a perfect holder because it keeps the tube from rolling away.  The stamp sentiment comes from my new stamp set called Sweet Popsicle Puns.

Why, yes that is fake grass!

Even though I didn’t use the big shamrock in the finished project, I did use my favorite ink embossing technique on it.  You can learn more about that on this post.

Here are the dimensions of the holder: It’s 5 3/4″ x 5 1/4″.  Score it at: 2 1/4″, 3 3/4″ and 5 1/4″.  Adjust those measurements to fit the specific item you’re adding.

The sentiment on the ATG gun is from Joy’s Life Yummy Puns stamps.

I’m adding some fun paper to the kraft cardstock to give it a burst of color.  To get the grass to stick, I just used my ATG gun.  I always use permanent glue in it.  If you don’t have an ATG you might really like this pink Scotch ATG gun.  It’s just like my red one but it’s pink (and about $30 less than my red one).  They used to only offer the red one and it was fairly pricey.

I’m not mowing that.
Wear green so you don’t get pinched!  I hate getting pinched!

That cutie pie leprechaun came from Lettering Delights.  Here’s another post where I used a similar leprechaun.

TA DA!!  I hope you liked that project!

    They’re all great but I really like Joyful Hearts! I really like the designs on the hearts and I like the vertical sentiments. It’s hard to find vertical sentiments.

    Joy, this project is just so adorable! I love the idea that you used fake grass. Very creative! I might have to scrap lift this for my daughter’s class next year. She is a teacher and I try to make something different for her kids every year and they would love these. My favorite stamp set is “Tag Your It Two” I would love to make a thank you card with the soup can for a friend at work who gives me her soup label every day for my daughter’s school (labels for education). She even digs ones out of the garbage if someone throws one away! LOL This would be such perfect stamp for her. tfs Tami
