Shamrock Blessings Card

We decorated felt shamrocks from a craft store with gold iron-on thread (no-sew embellishment that's quick and easy). Then double-sided tape turns them into temporary appliques on a blank greeting card (look for cards in the Dollar Store, or dollar bins at craft stores, Target, etc). This is a simple but expensive-looking way to upgrade a blank card and cheer up a friend.

Materials needed:

  • felt shamrocks from a craft or dollar store (we found ours at a Michaels store)
  • Kreinik Iron-on Ribbon in Burnished Gold 6230
  • Kreinik Iron-on Medium Braid in Gold 6225, Filigree 6220, and/or Gilt 6270
  • Kreinik Adhesive Press Cloth (the same size as the plate of your iron)
  • Mini craft iron or household iron
  • Kreinik Treasure Tape 1/2" roll
  • blank greeting card


Instructions for decorating shamrocks:

  1. If your iron isn't coated with a non-stick surface, cover the cool iron plate with the Adhesive Press Cloth. This will keep your iron clean.
  2. Turn your iron onto the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
  3. Begin embellishing your shamrock by placing the iron-on thread at a starting point, then press with your hot iron for a few seconds until the thread adheres. Continue pressing the thread in a desired pattern. In our model, we simply followed the outline of the shamrock.
  4. Use the double-sided Treasure Tape to stick the shamrock to your card.
