* St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Printmaking With Toilet Paper Tubes

Here's a goodie from my archives.

This is one of those project ideas that popped into my head in the shower. 
I do my best thinking there, unloading the dishwasher, and while driving -- go figure. 

I noticed an empty cardboard toilet paper tube can be squeezed into a heart shape. 
Then, I thought you could dip it in paint and make it into a stamp

Like printmaking with cookie cutters but with a longer handle
 to keep little fingers out of the paint. 

Put a group of three or four hearts together and add a stem, 
you've got a friendly little clover print!

These would make cute note cards!

Happy Green Printmaking!
