St. Patrick's Day

Send a St. Patrick’s Day greeting with a sparkle! Whether you’re the crafty type, or you’ve got an art-loving child, this DIY is super-simple for everyone at almost every age. Send the greeting to family and friends or use it as a glitzy way to invite quests to a St. Patty’s Day party!

Materials:

  • Card stock paper – white, dark/bright green and light green
  • Scissors
  • A pencil
  • Clear-drying school or craft glue
  • A paintbrush
  • Glitter – green and gold

Instructions:

  1. Fold the white card stock in half from top to bottom (tent style).
  2. Fold the dark/bright green paper in the same way to make an equally-sized card.
  3. Draw a shamrock onto the front of the green card. All you need to make a shamrock is three hearts. Draw one vertical heart and two horizontal ones, with the points of each touching. Add a stem below, from the center.
  4. Cut out the shamrock.
  5. Draw and cut out three hearts that are slightly smaller than the shamrock’s leaves, using the lighter green paper.
  6. Glue the smaller hearts onto the larger ones (the light green paper on top of the dark/bright green paper).
  7. Glue the entire shamrock onto the front of the white card stock.
  8. Paint a thin layer of glue around the shamrock.
  9. Sprinkle the glitter over the glue. Shake off the excess.
