A Lucky Charm

 Sharing a project that I had up with Authentique Paper yesterday
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Creating a lucky charm for your home to celebrate St. Patrick's Day couldn't 
be easier with a heart template and a helping of the "Lucky" Collection by
AUTHENTIQUE PAPER
blog.authentiquepaper.com

To begin, a 4.5" X 4.5" heart die, template or cutting file will be needed; 
or free-hand the shape.  Cut the heart four times from the Lucky One paper.
  For a sturdier hanging, the individual hearts may also be backed with
 a lightweight chipboard.

Arrange the hearts so that all of the points are facing in towards the center.
 Place a large circle of paper at the back of the hearts and adhere in the
 center to hold the hearts in place.

Accent the base hearts with a smaller, scrolled version from the Lucky Four paper
 Distress around the edges of the shapes with a walnut ink, if desired.

The vintage motif was trimmed from the Lucky Two paper and added to 
the center (of the now) four-leaf-clover.  The edge of the design was glittered
 with a emerald green glitter.

Two shamrocks were hand-cut from the Lucky Three paper and adhered 
below the vintage image.  The sticker sentiment was added to the center 
and a row of fun buttons were arranged at the top.  

 Any type of material can be used for the hanger: jute, twine, ribbon, wire, etc. 
Add a pretty bow to one side and you have the luckiest of lucky charms
 ready to meet your St Patrick's Day guests!
