Remember that famous phrase in Dirty Harry?
"You gotta ask yourself one question. 'Do I feel lucky?' Well? Do you, punk?"
And my answer would be a resounding YES because I have made this fun little lucky leprechaun centerpiece from the files at The Cutting Cafe
, that is mounted to an old spindle.
If you'd like to build one too, here's how:
First off you will start with a Top Hat
The black strap and buckle were hand cut and the buckle was embossed with aged old embossing enamel. The additional baubles for decoration were made using the Christmas Ornament
Of course in order to be lucky, you're going to need the luck so you'll want to use the
Lucky Big Expression
file. I used my Silhouette machine to weld the letters together which is why mine would look different from the original file.
The Lucky Big Expression file also comes with clovers
, so you'll use them too.
No top hat for a leprechaun is complete without a few flowers, so I enjoyed using one of my favorite flower files, Paper Flower
. I used this to make open petal flowers, but there is a wonderful video on this link that shows how to make folded roses also.
You won't catch a leprechaun running around without his dapper bow tie, so you'll want to use the one that comes with the Top Hat File
And last but not least, your lucky little leprechaun needs some cute legs so to create them I used the Witch Legs Shaped Card Set
And there you have yourself a lucky little centerpiece to ring in St.Patrick's Day with.
Hope you've enjoyed your visit with me.
