Hi Everyone! With St. Patrick's Day, just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to create a little something festive for the front door. I choose It's the Little Things papers for this project.
I used this tray as my base, but any tray, cookie sheet, canvas, ect. would work just fine. Also, if you don't have a sewing machine, you can certainly just use adhesives, and add faux stitching with a ruler and pen. Here's how easy it is to create some dimensional clovers for your project.
Fancy Pants supplies:
It's the Little Things: Gerber Daisy
It's the Little Things: Strips
It's the Little Things: Honeysuckle
It's the Little Things: Cards
Stamp: 'HAPPY' and Decorative Frame
Assorted Fancy Pants Ribbon, lace and buttons
dollar store tray
heart shape - die cut, punched or hand cut
1. Cut, or punch 6 hearts from 3 different patterned papers. Arrange and adhere 3 of each to your base paper on your tray. Lightly draw the stems where you would like them to be, using a pencil.
2. Machine stitch over your pencil lines to create stems.
3. Fold all your remaining hearts down the middle. Add a small about of adhesive along the fold line on the back of the hearts, place them on top of the 'like' hearts you've cut and already adhered to your tray. Now stitch down the middle of each heart, folding up the edges of each again when you are finished to give them dimension. Add buttons to the centers of each.
If you want to have extra good luck, you could aways make your clovers with FOUR leaves. :)
Wishing you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
