Carrot Shamrock Stamping for St. Patrick’s Day

Carrots you say?! Yes! We tried making shamrocks from baby carrots today! It actually worked very well and they turned out adorable! You must use a knife/peeler so you might want to prep this craft before hand. It is great for a St. Patrick’s Day craft!
