Lost stud earring shamrocks/clovers

CJ keeps removing her stud earrings and she is infamous at losing earrings. I don't want to miss the single cute earrings. So I have a collection of them. Do you have a set of single stud Earrings or do u collect single stud earrings? I have a 15 mins project to convert them into Shamrocks/clovers.

Before


After
Lost stud earring shamrocks/clovers

All you need is: Single Stud earrings, Recycled envelopes or green construction paper, Shamrock Cookie cutters or patterns, Scissors, Needle, green markers/stampers

CJ traced out heart shapes using the cookie cutter on a recycled envelope. She colored it green and cut the heart shapes.







Selecting the earring:


Arrange three heart shapes in a pile and prick a hole with a needle as shown below.


Start arranging the hearts to the stud as shown below, fasten the ear nut to the stud and spread them out into clover shape.


Here you go!




Stamping fun!


You can also cut several hearts by folding in accordion or square as shown below


Cute little clovers!
