How to Make

To marble:

  1. First you will need a tray or plate on a washable surface like a kitchen top.
  2. Squirt a layer of shaving foam into the tray.
  3. Drip paint onto the foam
  4. Take the end of a paintbrush or a pencil and swirl the paint to make pretty patterns (do not over mix)
  5. Now take a sheet of water colour paper and lay it flat on the foam pressing gently to ensure it makes good contact with the foam.
  6. Lift it carefully and scrape the foam off with a ruler.
  7. Leave the paper to dry.

To Make the card:

  1. First print the template and cut it out of your marbled card.
  2. Take the white card and fold it in half to make a landscape card.
  3. Then cut two 7 cm wide strips of orange and green card and stick these either side of the white card to create the flag.
  4. Now stick your shamrock in the middle at a slight angle.
  5. Take a black pen and write ‘happy St. Patrick’s Day on the front.
