Shamrock Tutorial - ScrapMuch?!

Hi there!

I have a new tutorial up on the ScrapMuch? site today.  In the spirit of upcoming St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would share an easy way tot make a pretty shamrock with you.  I have added mine to a card, but I really think this would look so pretty on a layout, so I have that on my to do list.

To start with you will need 6 hearts (punched, die cut or hand cut, whatever suits).

Now fold each one in half.

Adhere them to your layout out card in a shamrock pattern, with the creases of sets of two facing each other.  Only add adhesive to the bottom half, leaving the upper half sort of free flowing.


Take a pencil and draw a stem. Pierce along stem at about every 1/4"  or so.

Now stitch along the stem.  Add a button or something similar to the centre, and you are done.

This is my finished card.  Looks kind of cute all pulled together, eh?

Thanks for visiting!
