Equipment

  • Printer
  • Scissors and cutter
  • Cutting mat

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

  • Firstly Print your files. I recommend printing them at high-quality.
  • Then cut all your pieces, you should have 4 shamrocks (in 4 different shades of green), 5 buntings (LUCKY) and the buffalo check backing.
  • 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.
  • Place the foam takes in each leaf and a narrower one in the stem.
  • Peel off each tape backing and place the second shamrock on to as aligned as you possibly can.
  • Repeat the process with each layer.
  • When you are done you should have something like this:
  • Now it’s time to stick the shamrock to the buffalo check backing.
  • 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.
  • Then using removable 3M clear tape I secured the backing to the inner back of the frame.
  • The next step is creating the banner.
  • Start folding your buntings in half and glue it with the string inside.
  • Then alternate bunting and beads until you finish it.
  • Here again I didn't want to damage the frame so I used a super clear tape to secure the string.
  • 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.
  • If you don't care much about the frame or if hot glue won't damage it you can go for it too.
  • You are done!!!
