This year, I decided to make some clover tags that could be used on straws, goodie bags, treats, or really anything. Everything I used to make them, I had on hand, so not only is this a quick craft, but it can be a budget-friendly craft as well.
I used a heart paper punch and a scalloped-edge circle paper punch. But you can use heart stamps (or make them out of a potato) and green ink and cut circles using a juice glass as a template, if you don't have paper punches. The real trick here, is knowing that 3 hearts, makes a clover.
I gathered up some of my green cardstock scraps, and my paper punches.
I punched out light green circles for my tag base, and dark green hearts to make my clovers. I trimmed small pieces of the dark green by hand, to use for stems.
Once everything was punched, I put adhesive on the hearts and attached them to the light green circles.
For my tags, I used a glue dot and attached each one to a drinking straw. But you could attach them to just about anything, even a plain white card to make a Happy St. Patrick's Day Card.
What will you put some lucky tags on for St. Patrick's Day?
catch you soon -
