Supplies for Paper Bag Shamrock


  1. First, you will have to download, print and cut the shamrock template. You can also draw your own shamrock if you prefer.
  2. Next, trace two copies of the shamrock on the brown paper bag.
  3. Cut out your paper bag shamrocks. If you have small children, make sure they are using safety scissors.
  4. Paint one of the paper bag shamrocks. This will be the front side of your craft. You can add glitter but that’s optional.
  5. Staple the sides of the paper bag shamrocks. Work your way around the edge, stapling a half inch apart. Leave some space at the top and possibly the sides.
  6. Finally, stuff your paper shamrock with fiber fill then staple it until it’s completely sealed. If you are not a fan of using a stapler for this project, use a hole punch and yarn instead. You could also use double-sided tape.
