Quick Shamrock Button Art

Last week, I was going through a crafting panic attack.  I had spent so much time creating the latest Mommy School packet and hadn't created anything new in over a week.  Crazy, I know!

To treat my anxiety, I decided that I needed a simple project.  A project that I could sit down and knock out in under an hour.  It would ease my anxiety to have just one project made.  This shamrock button art was the perfect solution.

Cute, easy, festive.  Hard to mess up.  Perfect for me.

 

I didn't take step-by-step pictures, but here are a few simple directions:

I purchased this frame at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.  (See, I told you I was on a frame kick!)  I measured to determine how to cut the scrapbook paper background.  Aren't the yellow polk-a-dots cheery?!

Next, I just traced a shamrock pattern onto the paper.  Now for the fun part:  I collected ALL the green buttons I could find, and hot-glued them inside the shamrock shape!  I literally only had 3 buttons left when I was done.

It felt a little bare to me, so I cut the word "Lucky" out of black vinyl, and added that to the final product.  I inserted all of that back inside the frame, leaving out the glass, and I was done!

Phew!  This was the cure I was looking for... I can always use a little crafting therapy!!
Happy Monday!

    Such fun therapy! I adore this. The scrapbook paper is just perfect. I'm a button hoarder so I have a hard time parting with them for projects, but I would sooooo use them up for this! ♥
