Flower Pot Card Tutorial

Hi this is Sara, I am back today with a tutorial for you! Its finally May and that means flowers so lets brighten someones day with a Flower Pot Card.



Lets get started!

http://www.4shared.com/document/xwG6US2c/sara_flower_pot.html

Here is a PDF of the template. You will need to click on link, download image, and print PDF. Next, trace the image onto your cardstock and cut it out. The dotted lines are for folds.

NOTE: You will need to choose a double sided piece of paper for your pot as part of it will fold down and be seen.

I have traced the pot template and cut it out. (The yellow is the inside of my pot)
Score across where the dotted lines appear in the template for an easier fold.


Using a boarder punch of your choice and punch the longer end.


Then fold the bottom of the pot up (the brown side is the outside of my pot)


Then fold the punched end down.


Use a piece of coordinating ribbon and tie it around the top of the card to hold it together (no adhesive needed!)

Next cut the card piece from the template and make 3 flowers of your choice. Be creative here, mix and match some different punches and add layers to your flowers with pot dots!


To get the right placing for your flowers, put the card inside your flower pot and put pop-dots along the top part of the card that is sticking out. This will allow you to arrange your flowers so that they look like they are hanging over the pot.



Done! Its that easy! Have fun creating!
