Ready for Leprechans

Valentine's Day is gone and the season of Leprechauns is on it's way.  This year we are going to be ready for those little buggers.  Last year my granddaughter Mikayla came up with her own trap but didn't catch one.  So this year we decided to try SVG Cuts Leprechaun trap -- The Gold Coin Inn. This is a super template because you can get the .pdf for this free from Martha Stewart or buy the SVG files.  I'm lazy and I love my Cricut Explore and SVG files are so easy to import into Design Studio once you figure it out.  So here's my little Inn.  Click photo to see larger.

Here's the side view.  This is about 10 inches tall.

And last, here's a look at what's inside--the lure--gold coins!  So the Leprechaun will see the gold coins and climb up the stairs (still figuring that out).  When he reaches for the gold coins (hanging from the ceiling, he will fall in) and get stuck in the box.

Papers:  Clover Meadow (Ret.), Ponderosa Pine (Ret.) and Colonial White Cardstocks;
Inks:  Sign was printed on deskjet colored printer
Embellishments Various from Hobby Lobby
Other:   Ek Success Border Punch; SVG Cuts Gold Coin Inn SVG File; SVG Cuts Celtic Knots SVG File; z3021 Scallop Embossing Folder

Hope you are getting ready for those little Leprechauns this season.  And if you catch one, let me know how you did it.  Happy Crafting!
