Lucky Shamrock Mobile

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

The shamrock, as legend tells is a lucky charm. These sparkling clovers hang from a chandelier and will brighten up any room for spring. Do you come from Irish ancestry? If so, all month long they will be a great reminder of where you came from! If not, then maybe a little bit of luck will come to you.


Oh My Crafts: Adhesive Stencil Material, Emerald Green Flake Vinyl  
We R Memory Keepers: Crop-a-dile  
Invisible Thread  
Green Garland: can be plant like, feathers or anything that drapes

Note: Any electronic die cutting machine can be used for this project. 


1.     Cut a 12x12 piece of stencil material and remove backing, leaving the sticky side exposed.
2.     Cut a 12x24 sheet of green flake vinyl in half. Remove backing from one cut piece of vinyl and carefully position on top of exposed vinyl being careful to roll the vinyl on to the sticky side (rolling it onto the stencil helps to alleviate bubbles, then smooth out any bubbles). Repeat process with second piece of green flake vinyl. Both sides of the stencil material should now be covered.
3.     Place vinyl/stencil material on cutting mat and prepare machine for cutting according to chart.
