Cut your shamrocks from the dried watercolor paper using a die cutting machine or scissors.  To die cut the shamrocks, create a new project in Cricut Design Space.  Bring a shamrock image (like this free one found on Pixabay) onto the canvas.

Duplicate the shamrock in various sizes from 2 to 4 inches.  You’ll want a good assortment of shamrocks to add to the wreath.  Make the project.  If you’d like, outline the cut shamrocks using a gold paint pen.
