March is just around the corner and there’s no time to waste if you’re planning on celebrating Mardi Gras this year with a FUN new piece! Why not create a fun adaptation of the gnome file and celebrate with a Mardi Gras Gnome!
The Gnome SVG file got a bit of a makeover, and our new Mardi Gras gnome is looking forward to grabbing a few extra strands of beads before the party ends.
If you don’t have double-sided patterned paper make your own by gluing two panels, back-to-back (you’ll need to cut 2 sets of panels). Lightly train the paper by curving the panels.
Next, join the tab for the brim.
Glue the panels to the inside of the rim of the hat with the pointed ends curling outward. Let dry. Add the decorative panel to the rim of the hat. If desired, add bells or another decorative element to the end of the panel at the point.
Place the hat on the gnome body. Adhere the nose and add any additional details you wish.
Fill the body of the gnome with a fun treat. Add a crumpled piece of tissue paper and let it puff up at the center of the hat area.
Of course, Mardi Gras isn’t the only holiday in March… St. Patrick’s day will follow in a couple of short weeks. Check out this cute St Patrick’s Day adaptation of the Gnome file!

This is the a Pot of Gold by Helle, at the end of the rainbow. She designed this for St Patrick’s Day using the Witch’s Cauldron. She even de-embossed it with a few images. Click here to get the details on her blog.
Today, I am sad to say this is Cathie’s last day with our Design Team. What a way to end…with a cute Leprechaun Gnome for St. Patrick’s Day! That is the fun things about the Gnome SVG file…it can be used for any occasion. Click here to read about it on her blog!
This is such a cute St. Patrick’s Day version of the Side by Side Box Card designed by Leslie! Instead of using one of the existing file inserts, she added her own to make this unique St. Patrick’s Day card. I know a few that would love to get this UTV box card. It would be fun for a party decor too! If you want to learn more, head on over to Leslie’s blog!
