Good morning. It’s been a crazy week over at my house. Mike is learning to take on my parenting duties and I’ve been at work 9 hours a day. Weird. But we’ve both risen to the challenge. Everyone still has all of their appendages and we’re happy. You know, the important things. With my new work schedule, I’m finding that pre-scheduling blog posts is the best idea ever. Thing 1 wakes me up and within an hour Thing 2 is awake. Then 2 hours later we are heading to N&P’s house so I can drop off the kids. By the time I’m home I want food, a TV show or two and bed. Oh how I love my pillow! The point to this is one thing: I’ve been slacking off as a blogger. I hardly replied to any comments this week and I feel bad about that. I read each and every comment you leave, for real, but with my new schedule, I won’t be answer them until Sunday and Monday…my days off. I do promise to answer you all. Pinky Promise! Okay, now that I got comment guilt off my chest let’s do something fun!
Quick and Easy Shamrocks
Solid green scrapbook or construction paper
Printed green scrapbook paper or wrapping paper
White cupcake liners (regular or jumbo)
Regular or double-sided tape
12″ x 12″ picture frame
Method: Using the lid to a regular sized spice container trace 3 circles onto the back of your solid green paper. Trace three smaller circles onto the back of the printed green paper, using whatever you can find.
Cut out all the circles.
Using some tape (double sided or regular in a loop), tape the printed circles on top of the green circles.
Then tape the solid green circles into the base of three cupcake liners. You can line the small circles up to be centered of place them however you like.
Arrange the cupcake liners in a shamrock shape (triangle) on the wall and tape into place.
You could also arrange your shamrocks on a cute green background and stick them in a picture frame that doesn’t have any glass.
Repeat to make as many shamrocks as desired. You could also flip the printed and solid green circle sizes to change things up.
