Saint Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Gnome Pop-Up Card Craft Step-by-Step Instructions:
Step 1: Make The Rainbow
From the printable PDF templates cut out the six half-circular shapes. Use the shapes to cut out six colors of colorful craft paper for the rainbow. Keep in mind that the templates are in A4 format so you’ll need A4-sized blank papers to print out the templates.
The largest piece from purple, blue, green, yellow orange, and red.
Glue the blue piece inside the purple piece, glue the yellow piece inside the green piece, and glue the red inside the orange piece.
Then, glue paper rainbow pieces together to complete your paper rainbow for your leprechaun gnome pop-up card.
Step 2: Gold Pot and Cloud:
Cut out the gold pot using black craft paper, and cut out the coins using golden craft paper or yellow craft paper. Cut out the clouds using white embossed papers. If you don’t have embossed papers you can just use regular white craft papers for it.
Glue the gold coins with the black pot. Glue the smaller piece of cloud over the larger piece of the cloud.
Step 4: How To Make A Leprechaun Gnome:
Use green shades of craft papers to cut out the leprechaun gnome’s hat and suit.
Use orange shades of craft paper to cut out the leprechaun gnome’s beard and mustache.
Cut out the leprechaun gnome’s nose using creamy beige-colored craft paper.
The hat and the suit will look good if they are cut out from 2 different shades of green craft papers.
Glue the leprechaun gnome’s mustache over the beard, then glue the beard with the leprechaun gnome’s suit.
Glue the nose over the leprechaun gnome’s mustache. Glue the tiny shamrock patterns with the leprechaun gnome’s hat/beanie.
Glue the gnome’s hat with its beanie to finish making your gnome.
Step 5: How To Make A Pop-Up Card:
Fold an A4-sized cardstock paper in half, Cut off ½ inch from the side to make the card slightly thinner. You can also use the whole A4-sized card if you want a larger card.
Cut out 2 strips of cardstock paper. Fold the cardstock strips on both ends equally.
Glue the two folded cardstock paper strips with the top and bottom parts of the card while keeping the card open.
Glue the paper rainbow craft on the two paper strips, and leave about 2 centimeters gap below.
Fold another cardstock paper strip and glue it below the rainbow with the card.
Step 6: Finish Making Leprechaun Gnome Pop-Up Card
First, glue the paper gnome craft on the center folded pop socket of the card.
Then, glue the cloud on one side of the gnome and the gold pot on the other side of the paper gnome.
Glue a zigzag cut-out grass from green craft paper on the front to finish decorating your Saint Patrick’s Day Gnome Pop-Up Card.

Leprechauns and gnomes are two different kinds of creatures but somehow you can combine both to make fun crafts. We usually picture leprechauns as short human-like creatures wearing green suits and green hats, they have red hair, beard, and mustache. On the other hand, we see garden gnomes or cartoons that have grey hair, and grey beard and their eyes and face are mostly covered with their beanie.
