st. patty's day leprechaun candy cups

life.
sometimes it gives you a big ole fork in the the road that forces you to make a decision.
scary stuff i tell ya.

if you've visited me in the past,
you know i took a little blogger winter break.

2 weeks as a matter of fact of making other stuff a priority, 
thus taking away from making fun stuff such as these:
nothing like a cup full of candy to make life sweet.

here's how to make some.
it's not shown but cut a little around the pattern to leave an overhang to the bottom of the cup.
ok i know that sounds totally confusing but hopefully you'll get it here:
i used the bottom of my donut mug to make the bigger circle. use whatever you have.
oh and i just used tacky glue.
ok put that hat aside and grab another cup.
i just free-handed the hole with sharpie 
and cut the orange felt. 

ok he said "kiss me" so that's our next step.

that was fun!
let's make another one.

i didn't have any rolos at the time but that can serve as the gold.
and because i couldn't decide on what pic to use for a title, here's another one.
and yet another one.
if that title decision was a fork in the road i would be all twisted around wouldn't i?

anyway, it's good to be back.
:)

  2. And I hope to be back too! Needed time to help out overnight with a newborn grandson so mommy and daddy could sleep! I ended up being up all day AND night! The little bug now lasts for at least 4 hours! Ahh! "Peace" until early July when the next one comes along!
    I love your little leprechauns! Kids could make them with a little help!
