Quick Clover Card for St. Patrick’s Day

By Marie |

We have a big clover patch in our back lawn. As annoying as it can be to have when you want to have perfect grass, I love seeing those little clovers during March. My kids are always scouring the patch for a chance to spot a 4-leaf clover. We haven’t found one yet, but we did find some fun 3-leaf clovers, perfect to pick for a St. Patrick’s Day card.

Supplies for a St. Patrick’s Day Card:

  • white cardstock paper
  • green paper
  • paper cutter or scissors
  • glue stick
  • dry flat clovers

Click through for the full tutorial:

1. First, pick a few clovers out of the lawn. Let them dry flat. The best way to do this is to place them in between pages of a magazine and let them stay there for 24 hours to dry and stay flat. Here’s a tutorial on how I have pressed leaves, which is the same process.

2. Cut your white cardstock into the shape of you desired card. I like mine square.

3. I also cut out a fun green accent paper to give the card a little pop.

4. I glued my 3 sweet little clovers onto another white piece of paper.

5. Glue them all on top of each other and you’ve got your perfect St. Patrick’s Day card. In the first photo, you can see I also added in the words, “Lucky me!” for a little fun.
