When I was a little girl, I made a paper leprechaun (to the left)in school for St. Patrick’s Day.
The arms and legs are attached with paper fasteners so that they are movable, and you can make him leap and dance an Irish Jig.
The only time I have ever used this type of paper fastener was in the construction this leprechaun.
For my entire life I have always called those fasteners “Leprechaun Clips,” and in my mind (and my mind only) these clips are decidedly Irish.
I know this is not reality, but it has always been my reality, so it seems quite fitting that I would create my own St. Patrick’s Day project using those very Irish (in my mind only) ‘Leprechaun clips’!
The original Leprechaun (pictured above) that somehow survived all these years was obviously the inspiration for my leprechaun.
If you’d like to make your very own Leapin’ Leprechaun, all you need for this project are ‘Leprechaun Clips’ (paper fasteners picture to the right) and my free printable below.

I’d love to see your finished leprechauns! Please feel free to share them in the comments below!
