St. Patrick's Day Done Right Great Falls MT

While it’s fun to have supplies related to every holiday, sometimes you just don’t have everything on hand you would like. If you don’t have a shamrock punch or die cut handy, try using a standard heart die cut to create your party decor and favors! I used a heart from the Basic Shapes 1 design card for the Slice from Making Memories. Here’s how to assemble your shamrock.

St. Patrick’s Day with your Scrapbooking Supplies
Create fun party decor using the scrapbook supplies you have on hand!

Shamrock Basics
While it’s fun to have supplies related to every holiday, sometimes you just don’t have everything on hand you would like. If you don’t have a shamrock punch or die cut handy, try using a standard heart die cut to create your party decor and favors! I used a heart from the Basic Shapes 1 design card for the Slice from Making Memories. Here’s how to assemble your shamrock:

1. Cut 3 hearts in a large size. 

2. Cut 3 hearts in a small or medium size using a contrasting pattern from the paper used in step 1.

3. Adhere the large hearts together in a shamrock pattern. 

4. Adhere the smaller hearts to form a shamrock on top of the large-heart shamrock. 

5. Cut a stem from the large-heart patterned paper and adhere to the shamrock. 

Party Decor
Use your shamrock skills to spruce up your party decor with your scrapbook supplies!

- Make multiple shamrocks of varying sizes to cover your table for décor.
- Include small shamrocks on napkin holders, place cards and favors.
- Make a garland out of varying sizes of shamrocks to hang for your party.
