Historical card designs that include clovers for St. Patrick’s Day. #freeprintable #ephemera
These historical cards all contain clovers for St. Patrick’s Day. The text has been removed from them making them more generic and versatile for crafting. They are great for collages, mixed media, junk journals, glue books, and more.
St. Patrick used a clover to explain the Holy Trinity of Christianity, which is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Shamrocks have three petals whereas four-leaf clovers have four. Finding a four-leaf clover is considered lucky because your chances of finding one with four leaves are about 1 in 10,000. Both versions are associated with the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.
Don’t forget to set the red line to score before cutting. The zipped file contains the design, the card shape, and one of the mandalas alone for your use. [mandala card svg]
I used my Cricut Maker to cut the file. Removing the mandala image wasn’t difficult but you do need to take your time and be gentle with it. Unfortunately the words “thank you” didn’t cut out well so I switched to a stamped and heat-embossed sentiment. I think the words would cut really well from vinyl so I am leaving them in the SVG file for you to choose how to use them.
With a bit of glue and attention to alignment, the card was easy to finish. The mandala image is a bit larger than the card so you can place it and cut off the hanging-over pieces making the alignment easier.
Here is a close-up of the finished card. I added a few gems in the center of the floral images. I think they give the card a finishing touch.

Making a desktop organizer with items from the Dollar Tree. #dollartreecraft #organize
I am using three pencil holders from the Dollar Tree to make this desktop organizer. I’ve placed everything I use on a regular basis into the holder and it is working really well for me.
For this project, I used three stacked pencil holders, double stick tape, foam tape, contact paper, super glue gel, and scissors. Most of these items were found at the Dollar Tree making it a very affordable and usable project.
I originally was making this to hold a variety of different colored pencils. As you can see, they extend out really far and just don’t look good, nor are they really secure in the holder. So I removed the pencils and just use it for all the small items I use on a regular basis. I also taped a small clothespin (also from the Dollar Tree) to the side and hang my scraper tool from it.
