Jill demonstrates how to make a rainbow layout using horizontal stripes, diagonal stripes, and fringe stripes.

She also shares how to make shamrocks using 3-D strips, a fun shamrock layout, a shamrock shaker, and a shamrock banner.

All of these can be done with any cardstock or construction paper, but for an extra shine on your project, Jill recommends glossy UV-coating.
