Aren't these little guys adorable? Michele Brummer Everett who has pretty much been a god-sent since before I moved back to the US, made some adorable Valentine's day candy poppers and I just about died out of cuteness. Michele is a wonderful illustrator and textile designer who can pull out the cutest characters. I asked if she would let me borrow her idea for a St. Patty's day version and thankfully she said yes. AND she drew the cutest little leprechaun. She's the best! 
Materials: scissors, leprechaun template, toilet paper roll, rainbow template, chocolate gold coins (I bought mine on Amazon Prime--the best!), writing utensil, double stick tape, tissue paper, embroidery floss, scrapbooker's glue, needle St. Patrick's day candy poppers & care package Step 1: print the rainbow paper on normal office paper. Step 2: Cut it out and measure against the toilet paper roll. Step 3: Tape it onto the roll. I used double stick tape to attach it. Step 4: With the scrapbooker's glue, glue the end of the toilet paper roll and hold it onto the tissue paper St. Patrick's day candy poppers & care package Step 5:Trace around a quarter onto a piece of paper Step 6: Cut around it. Step 7: Cut around the front and back of the leprechauns. St. Patrick's day candy poppers & care package Step 8: With 3 strands of the embroidery thread, make a cross in the circle. Step 9: Make a hole in the end of the tissue paper with the needle before entering in from the inside of the roll so the paper circle stays on the inside of the roll and the rest of the thread dangles out. Step 10: Glue the two pieces of the leprechaun onto the end of the thread. St. Patrick's day candy poppers & care package Step 11: Stuff the toilet roll with your goodies. I put in a first layer of moss and then gold coins and then more moss. Step 12: Glue the top of the toilet paper roll. Step 13: Attach onto the tissue paper to seal it off.

CARE PACKAGE
You know I love me a good care package (see my Valentine's heart and suitcase) I lined the inside of the box with the rainbow paper and set down shredded green grass with gold coins on top and the poppers. Then, I wrapped the box with the rainbow paper and now it's good to go! St. Patrick's day candy poppers & care package Thank you so much Michele!
