Today I would like to show you a leprechaun card and canister that I made for a special someone.
I am a very "visual" person. If I watch someone else make something, then it is very easy for me to do it myself. If I have to follow written instructions...sigh...I get lost. There is no video of how to put this together (believe me I looked) but I did find written instructions with pictures at Needles 'n' Knowledge Blogspot; she made it very easy to follow.
Here is the canister with the top off.
I have a tip for you. I find it much easier to hold the glued parts together with binder clips. Like this.
And let them dry. I also fill the canister with rice (once it has dried) to make it easier to glue the pieces on the front. I wish I could visit my friend Rhonda at http://scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/ and do a tutorial about putting together these hats. She is amazing at this kind of work!
Another picture of the card.
I made his shiny black eyes by covering them with Glossy Accents.
