Simple Shamrock Card

Earlier today we made simple shamrock cards using a potato stamper, and a paper bag. Emily really enjoyed this past activity so much, that we decided to try a slightly different version with shamrocks instead!


Cool, huh? Who knew you could have so much fun with potatoes and paper bags?


To make your own shamrock card, you will need a potato, a mini heart-shaped cookie cutter, a paper bag (we used an old LL Bean bag because it was green), green paint, a paintbrush, scissors.


Use the heart-shaped cookie cutter to make the heart stamp with the potato. Show your child how to make shamrocks made up of hearts.


Paint the stem.


If desired, decorate further. Emily used a star-shaped hole puncher to make these stars and glued them on. Then, she painted the stars.


Write your special message inside, and you are done!

That made a great card. The potato stamping looks fun. We were going to do one for Easter.
