Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share this adorable St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Bouquet with you. I made a template for you to make this craft super easy, and it’s a great way to get practice with using a craft knife if you’re not used to using one. Here’s what you’ll need.
St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Bouquet
- Variety of green scrapbook paper.
- Green straws.
- Cutting mat.
- Craft knife.
This is your template! Just save it as an image to your computer, and print it out full size! Each shamrock will be about 4 inches wide.
Start by using your craft knife to carefully cut out the shamrock templates. On two of them, also cut out the inner pieces. Now place one of your templates on the back of one of your scrapbook papers, and trace around it with a pencil.
Now cut out your image with your craft knife, and pop it out. And you have your first shamrock!
Now just do the same with the rest of your templates. You can make as many or as few little shamrocks as you’d like. Now go ahead and flip them over, and tape your straws to them! You can also use pipe cleaners, paper straws, or long lollipop sticks as stems for your shamrocks if you don’t have straws on hand.
I used bendy straws specifically so I could adjust the position of the shamrocks however I wanted. See? Now for the shamrocks with cutouts, I just trimmed the straw just above the bendy part and taped it where it wouldn’t show.
There’s all the shamrocks ready to go!
Just pop them into a vase and arrange them how you’d like. If necessary, you can always trim the straws just like real flower stems.
And you’re all done! I hope you enjoyed making this St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Bouquet with me!
