Lucky Leprechaun St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop 3/17

Welcome to Nicolette's Lucky Leprechaun Blog Hop. If you just arrived from Krista's blog  then you are in the right spot. If you just came to my blog and want to start from the beginning start here: Nicolette   Also I have the complete line up at the bottom of this post in case you get lost.  So now on to my project!!

ALTERED SHAMROCK BANNER
"Luck O' The Irish"
I found these glittered (and plain) shamrocks at Hobby Lobby and thought they were the perfect size for a banner:

I puched holes in each one to run white ribbon through and then I wanted to try the rosette tutorial I had seen on a Youtube video (sorry forget where I saw the first one it may have been Capadia Designs) and wanted a paper that was white with a green print. I searched everywhere and couldn't find the right paper, so I just made it.  I took plain white paper and used a leaf stamp I had in my stash and just stamped all over the paper and then cut it. It turned out exactly like what I wanted:
The leprechaun was cut from Paper Doll Dress up.  With the help of my good friend Shari she was able to alter his arm to be raised by manipulating the image in Sure Cuts Alot. I then used the umbrella cut (same cart) cut off the umbrella to use just the handle as a cane and hung him with a brad to "the"


Isn't he so cute with a Peachy Keen face !?
I hope you enoyed looking at my project as much as I did making it.  A big THANK YOU to Nicolette for picking me to be in this hop!
Now for the fun stuff..
