Last summer when I went to the Stampin’ Up! conference, I received a beautiful swap. I knew right away I’d be making my own version. Just looking at it made me smile. See my version below!
The flowers come up and you can write a little sentiment in the card.
I made this for my sweet mother-in-law. Then I realized it was teacher appreciation week. So you guessed it. I made 15 more of them . . . In less then two days. I’m crazy like that — and I know I’m not the only one. I typed little notes on the computer and glued them to the card so that I could fit in all the thanks I wanted to say to the amazing teachers.
Here’s a version with in light brown:
Since I knew you’d love to make one yourself, I made a tutorial on how to do them.
Stamp Set: Flower Patch and Flower Fair framelits
Colors: Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, So Saffron, Marina Mist, Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride
Paper: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake
- Cut Crumb Cake 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 (You can get 3 pots from one piece of card stock!)
- Score at 3 1/2 and 7
- Using your scallop punch, scallop the small side (as shown below)
- Fold as shown below.
- Angle the folded pot in your cutter diagonally, whit the folded side on top. Put one corner at the 3 inch mark and angle to the bottom score line (as shown below).
- After cutting, flip over and line up with the 2 1/2 inch mark and angle to the bottom score line.
- Your finished project should look something like this.
- Cut green card stock to 2 1/2 x 4 3/4 and white 2 1/4 x 4 1/2.
- Stamp flowers in assorted colors and cut out. *Use dimensionals when putting the flowers onto the rectangular card stock.* This will ensure that the card rests nicely over the flower pot.
- Use ribbon, tie a knot around the flower pot.
If you make one, be sure to send me a picture! This is SUCH a fun project.
