Leprechaun Pillow Boxes
It's another pillow box. I guess I got hooked on this babies! They're just the easiest to assemble. St. Patty's day is fast approaching and I needed to get something going for a class in March. This is just so perfect. Just looking at these boxes, you may have already figured out what kind of punches I used. I also used the Garden Green and Green Galore (retired) cardstocks. I just had fun with it and punched away.
I asked a couple of Irish friends what are common Irish names? Patrick, Darby.... can you name some? I'd like to give Irish names to these boxes :)
TIP: Make your face first before the beard. Your Curly Label punch piece should only be adhered on the center. Leave the sides unglued. To make the beard, adhere the ones on the face first- left to right - small, medium, large, medium, small boho.
The outer beard, using all large bohos, are adhered on the box itself.
The basic black belt band on top is measured at 1/2" by 2-1/4". I kinda played around with the thickness that's why you see some are thick and some are thin...hihi.
