Here’s a quick St. Patrick’s Day craft idea: Use toilet paper rolls to make a Shamrock stamp.
This upcycled projects was inspired by our Toilet Paper Roll Heart Stamps guest posted by Michelle of Rust & Sunshine. It’s pretty much one of those, times four. Learn how to make a toilet paper roll shamrock stamp after the jump…
How to Make a Toilet Paper Roll Four Leaf Clover Shamrock Stamp
Grab a toilet paper roll:
Smash it to create creases, just crush it right in halfsies:
Push one crease in to form a heart shape and wrap tape around the roll to hold in place:
It’s not Valentine’s Day so make another:
And another, for four total toilet paper roll hearts:
Go back over each toilet paper roll heart and re-fold the bottom seam to make a nice crisp fold at the point. Now hot glue along one side:
and glue the next toilet paper roll heart to the first one, making sure the stamping edge is evenly aligned:
Repeat along the edge of the second roll, then the third, until you have all four toilet paper roll hearts glued together into your shamrock shape:
Dip the stamping edge (that you were extra careful to make sure was all aligned flat) into paint (green, of course):
Ready for stamping!
There’s your four leaf clover…
Use a paintbrush to add a stem…
I added a message (“lucky day”) using simple alphabet stamps, but you can do whatever you like.
It’s your lucky day!
