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!
