With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I was curious... what do you call a group of leprechauns?  Is it a pack, like wolves?  Or maybe a murder, like crows?  I did finally google this question and though there is no official name, one person suggested that they be called a "Luck" of leprechauns, which I thought was perfect!  

I'm attending an in-person crop which starts on St. Patrick's Day, and wanted to make a little something special for my friends.  I came up with these cute little Leprechaun hat treat holders.  I got the original idea from a cut file I saw that was a wrap used to decorate a little paper cup.  I didn't have any paper cups so I decided to make my own.  Take a peek...

To make the hats, I started with this Coffee Cup SVG file from Lori Whitlock.  I deleted the cover and wrap pieces.  I then resized the body of the cup to be 3.25" high.  I pieced together the cup using some Gingham Linen Limeade Petite Prints. For the hat base I cut a circle about 3.125" in diameter.  For the black band I cut a strip Beetle Black Daisy Stripe Petite Prints approx. 0.5" x 6.5" and wrapped it around the bottom of the hat.  To finish I used the buckle piece from the Happy Go Lucky Leprechaun Hat SVG.

I love the Petite prints, not only because they match all of Doodlebug's Collections, but you can get a different look by just flipping the paper over!  The two hats below were made from the same exact papers, just the opposite sides!

The fun part was decorating the hats with cute little shamrocks from the Happy Go Lucky Shamrocks SVG.  For the little tag, I printed out Irish Kisses & Shamrock Wishes on some Limeade Floral Graph Petite Prints, sized to fit on the tag from the Tiny Tags Doodle Cuts, cut them out and finished them with some Doodle Twine.   (the inside area of the tag is approx .75" x 1.25")

Now for the reason behind my first question about naming a group of Leprechauns... I created a bunch of these little hats, and just needed to know!

Wishing you all a little Luck O' the Irish this St. Patrick's Day!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
