Every March in the US, our surroundings turn green in a celebration of all things Irish. Or Irish-American, since the modern celebration as we know it originated in the US.

The parades, leprechaun costumes, and mint green milkshakes all evolved from earlier American St. Patrick’s Day festivities. But shamrocks are a tradition straight from Ireland.

  1. Download and print Shamrock bookmarks onto heavy white cardstock. Print as many as you need for personal use. File or finished project may not be sold.

  4. Cut 2.5x6.5" strips from green card stock. Glue each bookmark to a strip
    of colored card stock.
