Do you have any dollar store foam hearts left over from valentines day crafts? Don't pack them up yet! I used some of ours to make this shamrock stamp.
Here are the pieces I used--three hearts and I cut the x into a stem shape. I used a bottle cap for the stamper. You could use just about anything...
Here it is assembled and ready to go!
For the past few years, I've seen people using these foam stickers as stamps, but I've never tried it with Juliet till now. We took a few times to figure out exactly how much paint worked best--here we got a little too much. Also, we found that the stamp slides across the paper very easily, so it is easy to smudge the shamrock if you are not really steady.
But eventually, we got a few good ones.
Even the messy ones are pretty cute in a modern art kind of way.
I'm working on a St. Patrick's Day booklist for you this week!
