* St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Printmaking With Toilet Paper Tubes

Here's a goodie from my archives.


This is one of those project ideas that popped into my head in the shower. 
I do my best thinking there, unloading the dishwasher, and while driving -- go figure. 


I noticed an empty cardboard toilet paper tube can be squeezed into a heart shape. 
Then, I thought you could dip it in paint and make it into a stamp


Like printmaking with cookie cutters but with a longer handle
 to keep little fingers out of the paint. 


Put a group of three or four hearts together and add a stem, 
you've got a friendly little clover print!


These would make cute note cards!


"C" painting stems, bushes, and grass for her second shamrock picture. 
Happy Green Printmaking!

Fondly,
Pink and Green Mama, MaryLea

I love the shamrocks! We used the heart tube stamp for valentines day as then turned them into binoculars.
