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.

Supplies Needed:
- Garden Green
- Green Galore (retired, optional if you have it)
- Tangerine Tango (for the beard)
- Whisper White
- Basic Black
- Daffodil Delight (for the buckle)
- Blushing Bride (for the face, eyelids and nose)
Ink Pad:
- Pretty in Pink (for sponging nose and eyelids)
- Curly Label Punch #119851 (for the face, you may use lengthwise or crosswise)
- 1/2" circle punch #119869 (eyes, nose and eyelids cut in half)
- 3/4" square punch- this punch no longer available in SU (for the belt buckle, just cut a smaller square for the black center part)
- Boho Blossom Punch #119858 (for the beard)
- 2 step Owl Punch #118074(use medium circles for the black inner eye)
Other Supplies:
- Black Gel Pen
- White Gel Pen
- Stamping Sponge #101610
