Directions:

Step 1: Cut 8 rectangular pieces from the green crafting felt that measure 4cm x 3cm. These rectangles will be the leaves of the shamrocks. In this project, we will be creating two shamrock hair clips, with each clip having four leaves.

Step 2: Cut a curvy M-shape on the topmost part of the rectangles. Make sure that the rectangles are oriented in a portrait position before performing this process. Do these for all of the 8 green rectangles.
