A Leprechaun Carousel Box for St. Patrick's Day

A Leprechaun Carousel Box (Notice the snow in the background.  We had 10 inches of snow!)
 
Happy St. Patrick's Day.  What a day...it's my 12th snow day this school year. I think I have had enough of winter and I am ready for spring.  I modified my carousel from a previous post to reflect today's holiday.  I think the leprechaun is adorable with the pot of gold in his hand.  When the carousel spins, he is going around in circles...exactly what you would expect of a little magic elf.
 
Here is the PDF.

Here is the .Studio file. I used cardstock.

Use the directions from a previous post to assemble this carousel.

I added beads to the top of the carousel instead of a flag.  The beads are strung together on a pin and glued to the axle of the carousel.
 
 
Everyone is Irish on St. Paddy's day. Enjoy the day!
