The Clovers Finger Puppet Printable!

Happy St. Patricks day everyone!

I know I'm not Irish and not celebrating this holiday but, hey, it's always nice to have an excuse to celebrate something! To celebrate the day (and feeling extra lucky today) I'm giving you a free printable of mr. and ms. Clover here, and boy, they love to dance, so print them while it's hot and slip them through your fingers (they are not on the net forever, boys and girls!).

I love to make finger puppets, it brings me back to my kindergarten days. I was always putting this and that to my puppets and I remember making a lion once, I put many color shredded papers for his mane, some ruffled strings (I can't fine straight one) for its whisker, some beads because it came from Africa (my logic was poor, I know), and finally dabbing my crayons all over the puppets to illustrate fur. My kindergarten teacher said to me, in a Simon Cowell kind of tone, "It's a little over the top, don't you think? Why don't you just color it with crayon like your friends?" Well, I'm glad I didn't.


So, if you're unfamiliar with finger puppets, try my Clover for your initiation, next time, you can make your own. Here's how to ...
  1. Cut along carefully until all white spaces are gone, yes, including 2 holes on each Cloverboy/girl.
  2. Slip your fingers (usually your pointer and middle one) and make them walk, run, or dance! If you think you have smaller or bigger finger diameter than the holes I provided, before you print remember to adjust the pdf files first.
  3. The hats and ribbons are their accessory. Slit the white line on top of their faces and slip the accessory's gray space behind. Voila.
As usual, if you play with mr. and ms. Clover please let me know. You don't have to blog about that, just put them on Flickr or something and let me know. I want to see their new feet.

If you need another clover craft head to Zakka life. She has the most utterly amazing clover craft tutorial.
