I used a cookie cutter and large stamp pad to make the shape but I did find some free printables of shamrocks online.
A shamrock is a symbol of Ireland. it is a three-leafed old white clover. It is a common way to celebrate St. Patrick's day by wearing a shamrock which
is said to bring good luck.
Something I just learned...While the four leaf clover is said to bring good luck...it is the three leafed clover that is associated with the Irish
celebration St. Patrick's Day.
