Sweet Smoothfoam Shamrock

Smoothfoam shamrock

Smoothfoam Scrapbook Mount
Americana acrylic paint – Sour Apple
5/8” wide Offray grosgrain ribbon – Apple Green
Lime green button
Lime green embroidery floss
Scrap cardboard
Double-sided tape or glue dots, thick tacky glue
Craft knife, paintbrush, scissors

Draw and cut out a 5″x6″ heart on a piece of cardboard to use as a pattern.

Cut three hearts and one stem from the Smoothfoam with a craft knife (use the curve of the heart as a guide to draw the stem). Rub a scrap of Smoothfoam along the cut edges of the hearts to smooth as needed.

Paint all the pieces and let dry. Tape ribbon around the edges of each piece.

Glue the pieces together in the center to create the shamrock. Make a rosette from the ribbon and glue it in the center. Add floss ties to the button and glue the button in the center of the rosette.

Glue a ribbon loop on the back for hanging.
