Create this super cute Leprechaun Mickey Mouse for under $5! This Mickey Mouse paper craft is perfect for scrapbooking, home décor DIYs, or even crafting with kids!
When we decided to make our St. Patrick’s Day Mickey Mouse I wanted to do a craft that the whole family could participate in. For that reason we turned our Leprechaun Mickey into a magnet for our fridge – but you could easily use this template for so much more!
DIY Leprechaun Mickey Mouse
Creating this paper craft is super simple – just print (or trace), cut, and glue. Easy peasy. For this craft for you, we have made a PDF for those of you who don’t own a craft cutting machine, and the SVG cut files for those of you who would prefer to use your Cricut.
- Black, Green, and Yellow Cardstock
- Gold Glitter- Dollar Store
- Glue Stick
- Scissors or Cricut
- Leprechaun Mickey Template Files
And if you are planning on making this into a magnet you will also need a foam-padded magnet.
Tips for Paper Crafting
For this craft, we used medium-weight cardstock. If you are new to paper crafting, this is something that you want to pay attention to. A lightweight cardstock will end up floppy and a heavyweight cardstock is harder to cut.
If you are using scissors instead of a craft cutting machine, you will want to make sure your scissors are good and sharp. If your scissors are on the dull end, you can sharpen them easily by cutting some sandpaper before you begin this project.
You will also want to have a lint roller on hand for once you are finished with this craft – it will make cleaning up the glitter mess a breeze!
