We have have a whirlwind of St Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids here on Red Ted Art. For some reason, we haven’t paid this super fun holiday much attention over the years and it is time to rectify that! Earlier we had some GORGEOUS Paper Quilled Shamrock Cards/ Art, we have some fabulous Paper Shamrock Decorations and today.. it is all about the easy Leprechaun Corner Bookmark Design for St Patrick’s Day! A perfect addition to our extensive collection of Corner Bookmark Designs! I love this little Kawaii Leprechaun– it isare super quick and super easy to make – using basic shapes such as rectangles and semi circles! It goes perfectly with our little Kawaii Shamrock Bookmark Corners made earlier this month!
These Leprechaun Bookmark Corners go OH SO WELL with our Kawaii Rainbow Bookmark Corners too! Hop over for a look!!!
