  • Cutting Machine
  • Cutter or Scissors


  • A bunch of cut out shamrocks different sizes and shades are best, if you have silhouette Cameo you can get the cutting file
  • 1 Gold shamrock
  • Green cardstock
  • A shadow box frame
  • Ruller
  • cuter
  • pencil and adhesive tape.


  • Open your frame on the back.
  • If it has passe-partout use it as your guide to cut your printable. If not use as your guide the page that comes in your frame.
  • Cut leftover if any.
  • Then use the same guide on your green cardstock.
  • Cut it the same size.
  • Then using your roller measure a bit less than an inch (this will be your new passe-partout and it shouldn’t be thick) Measure and trace a line on each side.
  • The cut along with your guidelines.
  • When you have your frame ready place it over your printable and adjust as necessary. I had to cut some extra paper to make the working fit.
  • Turn it over and using adhesive take secure the printable to the frame in place.
  • Now take your shadow box frame and fill it with the shamrocks, including the golden one. Make sure it’s facing the glass.
  • Put the printable in the frame facing down and close it.
