How to make a St Patrick's Day Altered Paperclip

Wanting to make some fun St Patrick’s altered paper clips I turned to my Cricut first. There wasn’t a Shamrock in my Cricut files so I decided to draw the image and then scanned it into my computer.

Using the Cricut Software I then turned the image into a cut file and cut the Shamrock out of green card stock. Of course, I had to cut at least 20 because these turned out so cute!

Cut a strip of Rinea Foil – Gold at 1.5 in. x 3 in. Emboss in Paper Studios Star Embossing folder with Tim Hotz Vagabond or other like machine. Fold in half and slide through the closed side of the paper clip. Glue with Aleene’s Tacky White Glue.

Place the shamrock in the Xyron Sticker maker then place on both sides of Rinea Foil.

Tie a bow with the Green ribbon and place on the corner of Shamrock.

Use the Punch Bunch flower punch on the Rinea Foil – Gold and punch two flowers. Place on fun foam and press with McGill Stylis to form into a flower. Adhere flower in the center of the shamrock. Repeat on the other side.
