Supplies used:

I first die cut a a few scalloped rectangles using the Harrop Layering Card Blanks Die set. The scalloped rectangles come in so many different sizes, I love how versatile this die set is- You can use it to make a handmade card and you can also use it to make some organizational labels.

To make the Paper Shamrocks I die cut two sizes of hearts using the Essentials Layerings Heart die set from darkerΒ and lighter shades of greenΒ cardstocks. You can by all means make these with just one color, but when I have my die cutting Β machine out I like to cut a whole bunch of them and then layer them!

I arranged my hearts to form a three leafed clover and adhered them onto the scalloped rectangles I cut previously.

On top of each larger heart, I layered and adhered a lighter shade of green heart to add some dimension and interest. This goes quickly and you can assemble a small quantity of these very quickly!

The last step is to cut a small stalk using the Tim Holtz 5 inch Mini Snips and adhering it into place.

And that easily, you can create a bunch of these paper shamrocks! These would be perfect to use on a handmade card, a banner or on a treat bag!

I went ahead and created about 8 of these so that my daughter could share them with her friends.
