I enjoyed making the 8” x 8” Valentine’s Day Sampler last month so much, I couldn’t wait to make one for St. Patrick’s Day. I like making the samplers because I get to use a lot of my Stampin’ Up products on one project. It’s fun trying to keep the same color scheme and theme going for 9 different boxes. If you don’t have the same products I do, you can adapt what you have to make a fabulous sampler too. You are only limited by your imagination.

The final squares are placed on a Whisper White 12 x 12 piece of card stock. They are placed ¾” from the edge. I placed all four corners first, then the center edges. There is ¾” between all the squares. The middle Shamrock was placed last.
