The leprechaun from the Lucky Clover Joy Clair set looks adorable, but naughty. I knew that I wanted to create something of a surprise with it.
From the outside it looks like a pretty little box, but on the inside…
This little guy pops out! Isn’t it fun? Here is now I created this pop up box.
The box is just an old jewelry box I have hung on to for years. The pattern paper is from a Christmas line as well as the gold ribbon. I ended up painting the box over with an artichoke color. The green pictured was a bit to bright. I never used the stickles, but had them out just in case.
First layer on some Gesso as to prime the box and paint it.
Using a gold paint dry brush a flower just enough to add highlights.
As the paint dries, color in the stamped images and cut them out.
Once the box is dry add the rainbow and sentiment in the lid.
To create the springs cut two strips of card stock and according fold every 1/4 to 1/2 inch.
Adhere to box and leprechaun with glue dots.
Now your box is ready to be given away!
