Easy Paper Crafts: Irish Shamrock

Make this fun and easy Irish Shamrock for St. Patrick's Day or to celebrate your love of the Irish any time of the year.

The easy paper crafts project uses brightly colored green papers to form the simple and beautiful finished Irish Shamrock design. 

With just a few materials and tools, we show you how to make this beautiful project in the pictures below.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Paper Crafts: Irish Shamrock:

Print the pattern. Trim around the outer and inner lines of the shape.

Trace around the pattern to make four of the shapes. (Tip: place the edge of the pattern on the edge of the paper to minimize the amount of cutting.)

Cut out the four shapes. For more even cutting, hold the scissors steady in one hand and feed the paper into the scissors with the opposite hand.

Easy Irish Shamrock step 1 cut shapes

Overlap the ends of two of the shapes to form the first heart shaped leaf of the Irish Shamrock.

As you overlap the designs, make sure any pencil marks are on the back side.

Glue the overlapped ends together. 

Easy Irish Shamrock step 2 form first leaf

Form the second heart-shaped leaf by overlapping another of the shapes across the opposite end of one of the first shapes.

Glue the overlapped ends together. 

Easy Irish Shamrock step 3 form second leaf

Form the third heart-shaped leaf by adding the fourth shape.

Glue only one of the overlapped ends together. 

Easy Irish Shamrock step 4 form third leaf

Cut off the excess of the fourth shape after it crosses the intersection. 

Glue the cut end to the shape it intersects (where the scissors point). 

Easy Irish Shamrock step 5 cut off extra

Center the design on the background paper.

This background is a 12x12-inch decorative paper. I wanted my Irish Shamrock to be on a field of flowers.

Easy Irish Shamrock step 6 center on background

Glue the Irish Shamrock to the background paper. 

Easy Irish Shamrock step 7 glue to background

Add a frame around the Irish Shamrock. This frame is a black 12x12-inch frame sized for scrapbook pages.

Easy Irish Shamrock step 8 add frame

Hang the colorful Irish Shamrock to display some fun.

Made simply, the Irish Shamrock design provides interest and adds a conversation piece to your decor.

Plus, the inexpensive frame makes it easy to change to another fun design whenever you want a change.

Of course, this design can easily be a fun and easy children's project with construction paper and a little adult assistance with the cutting.

For fun, take a look at some of the Irish based Celtic Designs in my Knots and Niceties shop.

Enjoy making this fun and easy paper crafts Irish Shamrock in celebration of St. Patrick's Day or all things Irish..
