To Cricut or Not to Cricut

March is finally here and it seems like we have so many fun events and holidays all coming up in the next few weeks. St. Patrick's Day, Easter and a bunch of birthdays all usher in the spring version of party season around here! 

Before the season begins, I wanted to start working on some of the cards that I will send out. This card is very simple and a little different.  I made it using my Cricut ("Ribbons and Rosette" cartridge), but you can just as easily cut this by hand or using a paper punch. 

Simply cut out four hearts. These are 1 1/2 inches long each. 

Fold, either by hand or using a bone folder.  

Place the hearts in a circle with the small pointed ends toward the center. Add a small scrap for a stem, place a sequin, rhinestone or small circle of paper in the center. Place on your card.  Embellish as desired.

I am sure that your favorite leprechaun will feel lucky to get a handmade card from you!
