How to Make a TP Tube Shamrock Stamp.

1. Mark a toilet paper tube into thirds. For mine, that made each section 1 5/16 inches wide.

2. Cut the sections apart.

3. Shape one of the sections into a heart by pinching a V on one side and indenting a V shape directly opposite the first V.

Repeat with the other 2 toilet paper tube sections.

4. Make sure one end of each of the tubes sits flat on the table.

Using a sharp pointed tool, poke a tiny hole through 2 of the hearts where you want to join them near their tip.

5. Push a small brad through both holes and attach.

Red arrows point to location of blue brads.

6. Poke a hole in the other side near the tip of one of the attached hearts, and the unattached heart.

Join them with another brad.

7. Pour a puddle of green paint in a plastic lid or styrofoam tray.

8. Dip one side of the shamrock into the green paint.

Tips.

It’s easier for kids to fill in the leaves and stem if the outline is allowed to dry first. They are less likely to smear the wet outline.

Adults should be handling any sharp pointed objects.
