Silly Leprechaun kids project

Hi all!!
I know, it's a silly project, but my students really loved it today - of course, theirs had added glitter!!!! Lots of it!!
Did you look closely enough to realize that the leprechaun is made from Stampin' Up! punches? Yep!!! the clover is made from three full heart punches and two more of them are the feet. The hands are from the triple heart punch and the face is a 1 3/8" circle. The base is a tongue depressor size stick and the arms are a regular popsicle stick. I recommend you use tacky glue for most of the project - we only used regular white glue to apply the glitter around the edges of the hearts. The legs are a strip of c/s that is 3/4" wide (I didn't measure, just eyeballed the length at about 8"). As I said, the kids loved it! Me? I loved that I did not have to hand cut all the parts!! And I was able to punch quickly enough that I did not cut too many parts in advance. Two googley eyes and a black sharpie and it was good to go. Love it...hope you do, too. Pam, I'll bet Megan would love making it!! And Patty - wouldn't your nieces have fun with this?!?!?
Night night...I went green today ..hope you did too!!
