A "Lucky" Charm for Your Home!

Creating a lucky charm for your home to celebrate St. Patrick's Day couldn't be easier with a heart template and a helping of the "Lucky" Collection.

To begin, a 4.5" X 4.5" heart die, template or cutting file will be needed; or free-hand the shape.  Cut the heart four times from the Lucky One paper.  For a sturdier hanging, the individual hearts may also be backed with a lightweight chipboard.

Arrange the hearts so that all of the points are facing in towards the center. Place a large circle of paper at the back of the hearts and adhere in the center to hold the hearts in place.

Accent the base hearts with a smaller, scrolled version from the Lucky Four paper.  Distress around the edges of the shapes with a walnut ink, if desired.

The vintage motif was trimmed from the Lucky Two paper and added to the center (of the now) four-leaf-clover.  The edge of the design was glittered with a emerald green glitter.

Two shamrocks were hand-cut from the Lucky Three paper and adhered below the vintage image.  The sticker sentiment was added to the center and a row of fun buttons were arranged at the top.  

 Any type of material can be used for the hanger: jute, twine, ribbon, wire, etc. Add a pretty bow to one side and you have the luckiest of lucky charms ready to meet your St Patrick's Day guests!
