Four-Leaf Clover Cards

Four-leaf clovers are rare enough to have inspired legends and songs, but you can make your own good fortune with a set of whimsical greeting cards.

materials

  • Cardstock
  • Bone folder
  • Green clovers
  • Glue stick
  • White paper

steps

  1. Cut a rectangle of colored card stock (twice the height of your envelope), and crease it in half with a bone folder.

  2. Cut a square of slightly smaller card stock in a different color, and adhere it to the front of the card with a glue stick.

  3. Pick three-leaf clovers from the yard. (Tip: you'll need two per card.) Place them between two sheets of paper and press them inside a heavy book for a few days, until dry.

  4. Leave one clover intact; remove a single leaf from the second one.

  5. Rub a glue stick directly onto the card-stock square. Carefully place the three-leaf clover, then add a fourth leaf to the stem. Let dry completely.
