Leprechaun Trap - Doodlebug Design Team Project

St. Patrick's Day is definitely a well celebrated holiday among my family members we are all about wearing green and drinking Guinness!! So I'm always excited for a Doodlebug St. Paddy's collection and Lots o' Luck is simply adorable!!

For my project, I used the gold coin inn svg file, I think this collection is absolutely perfect for this leprechaun trap, I really love how it came out.

I didn't have wood to make the ladder so I just used some of Doodlebug's gold sugar coated cardstock and it really came out great. I cut two pieces 1 1/4" x 6" and scored it down the long way 1/4" four times, then I punched 5 holes an inch apart on each piece. I cut another strip 1 3/4" and rolled up about an inch each piece tightly to glue into each hole to form the ladder rungs.

Since the inn is supposed to be a leprechaun trap and I didn't have a coin I cut out two gold circles and used the gold shamrock sticker instead, also I used the st. patrick's day sticker instead of the sign that comes with the project.

  1. Very good design, Really appreciated. Thanks for sharing your article.

  2. Your leprechaun trap project is absolutely charming and creative! I love how you adapted Doodlebug's Lots o' Luck collection to make such a whimsical and festive piece. The use of gold sugar coated cardstock for the ladder adds a brilliant touch, and the substitution of the gold shamrock sticker and St. Patrick's Day sticker is a clever idea. It's evident you put a lot of thought and creativity into this project. Well done!
