Hi There– super simple card idea here. I wanted to make one of these for my parish priest, Father Pat. He went in for emergency hip replacement a few months ago– and ended up getting a horrible antibiotic resistant MRSA infection– and has been in a wheelchair and in rehab ever since. He is such a wonderful man. It pains me to think of him not feeling well. This idea is a knock off of the cute pennant cards everyone's been making.
Supplies: 3 sheets of green patterned paper, Martha Stewart shamrock punch, green twine from The Twinery, cheap Shamrock cards from the $1 bin at JoAnn's, a ruler and glue.
Flip your paper over and make a mark every 2 inches.
Fold the paper at the first 2 inch mark.
Punch out shamrocks, leaving enough room at the fold…
To leave the 2 shamrocks attached. Continue folding paper at 2 inches and punching out shapes on the other two sheets of paper too.
Measure out 18 inched of twine.
Center 7 (you knew it would have to be "lucky 7") shamrocks
Glue them to the twine using less glue than I did here.
Let 'em dry
Here's a little Irish poem I found
I think the shamrock pennants look cute
I hope this brings a little smile to Father Pat.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Linking up here. I wish I could send you each a shamrock shake but I'll have to leave you with this instead: Big Hug,
