Most of the time I claim that green is my favorite color, when clearly I’m just in denial of being a pink kind of girl. Regardless, I love St. Patrick’s Day mostly for being given good reason to make everything green.
To make sure you’re the one pinching and not being pinched, I’ve put together a simple DIY paper backdrop and sweet recipe to incorporate into your holiday (or if you just like the green, I don’t blame you).
- Martha Stewart decorative circle punch
- card stock
Place the cardstock center over the magnetic circles, and let the magnetic knob and main punch into place over top of their specific magnets.
Press the punch down, then rotate the knob one time, and press the punch again. Repeat until the circle is fully cut-out.Once you have as many circles as you’d like, use a piece of looped tape to tape them into place for your backdrop.
