Mc Stampin' Leprechaun Treat Box



You've reached the end of the rainbow!
Greenie McStampin'
my Little Leprechaun has some chocolate gold for you, 
there's even carmel inside....so yummy

I thought it would be fun to make a little treat box for my 
St. Patrick's Day decor. Greenie is just sitting on a shelf waiting 
for little or "big" hands
to grab a piece of his gold.

Greenie is leaning over the edge of a black Petite Purse Die base, so eager to let you take one of his treats. I added a little green wire spring to the top of his head to attach a Lucky 4-Leaf Clover. I took some green wire from an old kit that Stampin'Up used to sell and wrapped it around the tip of my piercing tool. Glue dots held everything in place. Wondering if there should be 3 hearts instead of 4, but he is a LUCKY lil guy so it was 4. The hearts are punched from the Owl Builder punch #118074. Punch out the medium circle from that punch, apply a glue dot, attach the tip of the wire after you curl it. Apply another glue dot on top of the wire tip and then attach the hearts.

Greenie's cut little hands are made with the Boho Blossom punch using 4 of the pointed flower edges (who needs thumbs anyway!) I sponged all the skin color areas with Pumpkin Pie ink. Cut 2 small squares for the arm sleeves. He is holding a Gold coin punched from Gold Foil card stock. 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches were used.

Greenie's noggin was created from the punch art formula I created a few years back. The Curly Label punch made most of the foundation for the face and hat.
Punch a complete face and then cut a beard and attach to the face. Build a hat and place over the head. 1/2" Circle for the ears. White 1/4" circle for the eyes.
And the 1/4" black circle represents the nose. The squares are for the hat buckle. And the Word Window punch makes the hat brim and gold band. Attach the gold band to the hat and then trim to curve with green hat base. Make buckle with a 1/4" square glued onto a larger square. I used one quarter of a punched 3/4" piece. Sorry if that's confusing!


Please note that Greenie McStampin' actually has 2 looks

his slimmer noggin (on the treat box), and
his broader noggin (on the recipe card)
The difference is which way you you turn the 
Curly Label base.


Can't get enough punch art?
Go big with the Top Note Die ..use the retired Ornament punch
for the ears, 1/2 for each side


It was made into an easel for more Home Decor Fun!
