This cute project is simple to make! Mary Anne created this store sample for us with the new Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers.

  • We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
  • Journal Plate & Bracket Large Punch
  • 8 1/2” x2” Green Cardstock
  • 1/2”x2” Gold Paper for Belt
  • 2 1/4” Circle Punch (Flesh cardstock for face)
  • 2 1/2” Scallop Punch (Brown Cardstock for hair, mustache)
  • 2 1/2”x2 1/2” Black Cardstock for Hat - cut 2
  • 1/2”x3” BlackCardstock for Hat Brim - cut 2
  •  1/2”x1/2” Gold Cardstock for Hat Band
  • 1/2”x1/2” Gold Cardstock for Belt
  • Shamrock 3D Sticker
  • Green and White Baker’s Twine

  1. Cut green cardstock to strip of 8 1/2” x 2”.
  2. Using envelope punch board, make the neck of your Leprechaun by punching with left edge of cardstock at the 2" mark on all 4 long sides. Score. Fold body on score lines and add your golden coin or candy treat inside. Adhere top together with glue.
  3.  Glue scalloped circle with bottom near neck punches. Glue circle over the top with the bottom of the circle barely covering the bottom of the Scallops. 
  4.  Make hat base by using the corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board to round the top corners. This is the top of the hat. Use the corner rounder to punch all four corners of the hat brim strip. Glue to the top of the head front and back Adhere the gold foil strip towards the bottom of the hat. Now glue to hat brim to bottom of hat, front and back.
  5. Insert brown paper into the Journal Plate & Bracket punch and press to punch out. Now slide the paper piece back in slightly and punch again to give you the mustache piece. Glue to the face.
  6.  Use a hole punch to punch out two black circles for eyes (also two for the buttons). Glue down.
  7. Tie a bakers twine bow and adhere to neck with a mini glue dot. Add the belt of gold foil and 2 black buttons with mini glue dots. And your lucky leprechaun has come to life!
