DIY Foiled Shamrock Artwork

IMG_4314

When I first saw Thermoweb’s new Clear Designer Toner Sheets, I knew I had to use them for a St. Patrick’s Day project.  They have so many foils to choose from.  I thought the gold shattered glass foil screamed St Patrick’s Day!

I grabbed the polka dot clear toner sheets since I thought it would be bold, yet subtle for the idea I had in mind.  I already had a piece of wood that was once used as home decor to add height to a vase.  I haven’t used this piece of wood in years, but figured since it was in my attic collecting dust I may as well use it!  This piece of wood has now been repurposed in to the base for my super simple DIY Foiled Shamrock Artwork!

Supplies:

Add a coat of paint to your wood block.  If you need extra coverage, add a second coat.  Once the paint dries, use sandpaper to rough up the edges to give it a rustic look.

Cut out 3 small shamrocks from green cardstock using the Cricut.

Cut a sheet of the Clear Designer Toner Sheet so it’s the same size as the front of your wood block.  Cut a piece of foil the same size. Place a piece of cardstock inside of a piece of parchment paper.  Then, place the toner sheet on top with the foil sheet on top with the pattern side facing up. Run it through a hot laminator, leading with the creased side.  Then, peel back the foil sheet.

Next, add adhesive to the back of the toner sheet and adhere it to the front of the wood piece.

Add foam squares to the top of two shamrocks. Glue all three together.  Glue the shamrock to the center of the block. That’s it! So simple!
