Last week I was at Home Depot…
trolling the paint department once again!!….
I picked up some paint chips…
in shades of green….
…with an idea to make this:
Easy, fast and beautiful Clover book mark in 20 minutes flat!
This fast and easy craft is a great teacher’s gift!
Fun craft for the kiddos to make too!
Cost = Free!
Time = 20 minutes or less!
Skill Level = Way easy!
1 paint chip will make several book marks!
1 Paint chip card
Embroidery floss in green – Eight inches long
Photocopy of Clover shape
Find a clover shape on the internet and photocopy.
Using pencil, trace outline onto Paint chip card so that two colors show (I made sure that ‘Elf hat’ was included for a touch of Saint Patrick!).
Punch a hole in one of the leafs.
Fold Embroidery Floss in half and tie ends in a knot.
Wrap Embroidery floss through hole to secure.
Did I mention this was Easy, Fast and Fabulous!!

Here’s my Saint Patrick book mark, marking a page on a Fashion-Forward Farmhouse Kitchen in my Candice Olson Kitchens book:
Here it is marking a page in an issue of Style at Home magazine – (luv this mag do you?)
I think I’ll make some more with my son for teacher’s gifts!
Even with the convenience of e-readers today, I still enjoy reading an actual magazine or book – do you???
Update! My Saint Patrick’s Day Book Mark Tutorial is featured in The Saturday Evening Post! What an honour!
