The shamrocks that grow,

Wherever you go.

St Patricks Day Rainbow Paper Plate

No matter what the topic, it seems you can always make something related out of a paper plate.

A St Patricks Day themed paper plate craft has a rainbow, and of course, a pot of gold.

Pleated Paper Rainbow Circle
Mar 13th, 2015 by Craftylocks

Rainbows are such a great excuse to use colourful paper. Add a pot of gold and it is a St Patricks Day paper craft!

For this craft you need paper in all the colours of the rainbow, to make it a St Patricks rainbow craft make sure you have some extra green paper for a shamrock, and brown for the pot of gold.

Good luck and have fun making your St Patricks rainbow circle.

Pleat each sheet of paper and then fold it in half. Cut out a shamrock and pot shape out as well.

Glue each pleated fan together in the middle, and to the next fan. I thought it looked quite cool cool after each one had been glued together and it made a half circle fan shape.

But the plan was a circle, so I made the final glueing step and joined all the fans together to make a circle with a pot of gold in the center.

St Patricks Day Envelope Corner Bookmark
Mar 12th, 2015 by Craftylocks

I had so much fun making these the other day that when a green envelope arrived in the house, I knew it needed to become a shamrock bookmark!

Please have a look at all the steps for Bookmarks made from Envelope Corners to see how easy they are.

For a St Patrick’s shamrock bookmark we of course needed to bookmark a book by an Irish author! An author that we love and highly recomend is Roddy Doyle, and his books; The Giggler Treatment and Rover Saves Christmas. These were also some of the stories the children read to me while I painted the Forest Lagoon Mural.

Bookmarks made from Envelope Corners
Mar 10th, 2015 by Craftylocks

Recycle those pretty envelopes into even prettier bookmarks with this fun easy craft.

I guess I only really needed to make one of these to demonstrate the process, but it was so much fun and so easy that I made a few! Now when I get cards in brightly coloured envelopes, I will be thinking what sort of bookmark I can make! And I did … see the next one I made.

You do not actually need to have brightly coloured envelopes, even plain ones will work.

Draw and colour some pictures in the corner of the envelope. The best corner to use is the one at the bottom that does not have the flap on the other side, so you have a nice pocket when you cut your shape out.

Cut around your shape and it makes a nice pocket for slipping over a page corner to mark your place.

 

This would be a handy paper craft for children needing to make a gift for Mothers or Fathers Day!

I Love You THIS Much Card
Mar 9th, 2015 by Craftylocks

Say thanks with this card, and it is bound to put a smile on the recipients face.

Draw around the child’s hand onto some card. Cut that hand shape out and use it as a template to cut another hand shape out.

Cut two strips of card and glue them together to make a long strip. Write ‘this much’ on the strip and then fold into a concertina.
Write ‘I love you…’ on the top hand and decorate as you wish. I used a piece of paper doilie I had left
over from another craft project to represent a lace cuff.
Glue the concertina strip between the two hands so that the hands line-up when the card is closed.
