Home Scrapbooking Doodlebug Design Inc Weblog: OVER THE RAINBOW LEPRECHAUN CANDY HUGGERS



St. Patrick’s Day is that this Friday, and I am all set with some enjoyable little Leprechaun sweet Huggers!  These could be so enjoyable to present to pals & household or as a classroom deal with.  Take a peek….

I began with the enjoyable Gnomies Doodle Lower Dies and papers from the Over the Rainbow Assortment.  I turned my gnomes into Leprechauns just by dressing them in a number of the inexperienced papers from the gathering.  I altered the die cuts barely to present them longer arms to hug the chocolate kisses.  Beneath, I’ve outlined the steps I took to make them…

To begin, I minimize the items of the gnome as proven above.  I minimize a 3/16″ x 6″ strip of the Fortunate Me shamrock paper from the 6×6 pad and a small piece of black for the eyes and mouth.  I additionally minimize one other gnome physique from the again facet of the Fortunate Me paper.  I like to do that if I am utilizing a double sided paper in order that I can cowl the again and provides it a cleaner look.

Subsequent.  I added the black piece to the again of the principle Leprechaun physique behind the eyes and mouth.

I coated the entire again with the additional gnome physique.  I stored the attention and mouth minimize outs and glued them within the openings to make it look stable.

I flipped the gnome minimize out to the entrance facet.  I minimize simply the legs portion of the principle physique piece from the sprinkles of coloration paper within the 6×6 pad in order that I might give him some colourful stockings.  Subsequent I glued on his shirt, cuffs, belt, buckle and sneakers.  As soon as he was assembled thus far I snipped off his arms (merciless, I do know, however I promise, he was okay….)  I then added his beard, hat, nostril and eyebrows.

I flipped him again over to the again facet, centered the lengthy strip alongside the place his arms have been and glued it to the again of the physique.  Now if you flip him over, he has further lengthy arms to carry a deal with!

I added a glue dot to his physique, to carry the kiss, wrapped his arms across the kiss and glued them collectively.  To finish, I added his little arms with the cuffs connected to make it seem like he was hugging the kiss!

For the lady leprechaun, the method was mainly the identical.  Listed below are some close-ups of every of my leprechauns…

I hope these little cuties deliver you some luck this St. Patrick’s Day!  That is all for me at the moment, thanks for stopping by to peek!
