{Simple Shamrock Art}

Hey, y'all!  Recently, I shared this shamrock art at Through the Eyes of the Mrs.  Today I want to share it with y'all.
To make this art, you will need a frame, scrapbook paper, a heart paper punch, and double stick tape.
Start by punching four hearts from your scrapbook paper.  Cut a stem shape from the paper as well.
Use the paper that comes in your frame as a pattern to cut a background piece of scrapbook paper for your frame.
Arrange your hearts and stem in a shamrock shape on your background paper.  Then use double stick tape to adhere the pieces.
You may want to leave the shamrock like this, but I wanted to add a little banner to it.
I cut a banner shape out of a coordinating scrapbook paper and stamped the word lucky on it.  I used double stick tape to adhere it to the middle of the shamrock.  Then it's time to put the shamrock in your frame.
When I got the shamrock in the frame, I decided I wanted to make the detail on the frame pop, so I applied some Rub 'n Buff with my finger to the raised pieces.  And then I decided I liked the finished product.
 This is a fun little piece of St. Patrick's Day decor.
And the best part?  It was really easy AND inexpensive to make!  If you can make a project that is both, you're pretty LUCKY.  ;)  Do you decorate for every holiday or just the big ones?


  1. That's really sweet. I definitely like the frame better with the rub n buff.

  2. Love the frame and the shamrock project is awesome. So pretty and yet simple. Way to go. Great share. Happy March Crafting days.

  3. Hi, Bethany

    This turned out great and I love that rub and buff. I keep picking it up at the store and putting it back. I wasn't sure if it was worth it, but I see it is. Have a great week.
