How to Make Glitter Shamrock Button Covers.

1. Choose a shamrock that is 1 1/2 to 2 inches in size.

Do NOT remove the backing from the sticker.

2. Mark the center of the shamrock.

3. Using a craft knife, make a small slit starting slightly above the center mark and end slightly below it, with the slit running up and down.

Keep the slit barely large enough for the button to slip through.

Don’t get too close to the edge of the shamrock.

4. Button the blouse / shirt.

Slip a shamrock onto a button through the slit.
