Here is a quick and easy idea for creating Shamrocks for St. Patrick's day crafts or DIY decor. You can create this shamrock in minutes with your Cricut! I designed both the shamrock cut file and a free printable to use in a all types of projects.
The Shamrock design features line art accent lines around each leaf section and a heart cut out of the middle. I've created a cutting file as well as a printable you can use for all your own personal projects. What fun St. Patrick's Day projects will you make?
Shamrock cut files and printables
If you use this shamrock cut file with your Cricut Explore, you can set the doodle accent lines to draw. I used a gold Cricut pen for the shamrock cut outs.
I used my Cricut machine to cut all these shamrocks. The shamrock SVG file comes with 5 layers you can adjust to create variations of this pretty little design. Add the shamrock art to your Cricut Design Space canvas. Then just set the cut settings to create 6 copies for a 8.5×11″ piece of cardstock. I did have to shrink the image size down just a little to be able to get 6 to fit on a page. Search Cricut Design Space for image #MC47751 to find this image.
The center of the shamrock features a little heart. Once cut, you can use these hearts as little confetti pieces.
Use different shades of green cardstock to make a variety of shamrocks. You can also change out the pen color to create even more different looks.
