I'm taking a guess as to which is the best board for this craft.  I made lucky charms for all my kids' classmates for St. Patrick's Day!



It starts like this:

We have tons of white clover growing where I live and I have a knack for spotting 4 leaf clovers.  This pile was from a single day of harvesting.  I found over 34 four leaf clovers in one pleasant evening outside. 

I pressed them in my much loved copy of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (the thickest, heaviest book I own).  I slipped the clovers into penny sleeves (like for trading cards) and taped the penny sleeve to the printed card.  I designed the cards in PowerPoint ('cause I'm a nerd).

In my entire life of searching for 4-leaf clovers, i have only ever found one. I am in awe of your skill. Also, what a cute idea! I would have gone crazy over this as a kid.

What fantastic gifts.  And you certainly do have great skills in spotting 4-leaved clovers!

I have a bunch of these as well. We have a bunch of clover in our yard and I am similarly gifted with spotting them. I think I will have to do this for St Patty's day!

What a wonderful idea! I know my children would have been thrilled to receive those in class when they were younger. I know we've spent hours searching our clover covered yard and have never found one. I'm in awe of your skill!

I would be soooo excited to get one of those!  What lucky classmates!  We use to search and search when I was a kid, but I wasn't born with the skillz.   Cheesy

I bet the kids loved them! I have a knack for finding them as well. We have a very weedy & unkept lawn...so the clover grows wild & free.  Cheesy

These are so much fun!  I have never found even one 4 leaf clover!  A lady I used to work with could always find them though!
