Ingredients

  • White heavy cardstock
  • 6 gold beads
  • Gold thread or twine.
  • Glue
  • Double-sided foam take like the one used for scrapbook
  • Clear adhesive tape
  • An old frame. If it's not green you can paint it and if you don't have any frame you can make one yourself with cardstock.

Instructions

  1. Firstly Print your files. I recommend printing them at high-quality.
  2. Then cut all your pieces, you should have 4 shamrocks (in 4 different shades of green), 5 buntings (LUCKY) and the buffalo check backing.
  3. Once you have all your pieces ready, take the darkest green shamrock. This will be your base. Cut pieces of double-sided foam tape. I wanted a thick separation between shamrocks so I doubled the tape.
  4. Place the foam takes in each leaf and a narrower one in the stem.
  5. Peel off each tape backing and place the second shamrock on to as aligned as you possibly can.
  6. Repeat the process with each layer.
  7. When you are done you should have something like this:
  8. Now it’s time to stick the shamrock to the buffalo check backing.
  9. I applied a single layer of double-sided tape on the back of the shamrock and placed it as centered as possible over the backing.
  10. Then using removable 3M clear tape I secured the backing to the inner back of the frame.
  11. The next step is creating the banner.
  12. Start folding your buntings in half and glue it with the string inside.
  13. Then alternate bunting and beads until you finish it.
  14. Here again I didn't want to damage the frame so I used a super clear tape to secure the string.
  15. Decide where you want the banner to be and apply a small piece of tape over the string and rub it well against the frame so it's not so visible.
  16. If you don't care much about the frame or if hot glue won't damage it you can go for it too.
  17. You are done!!!
