Here's a great Mother's Day Project to make with the kids! With a few punches, wide popsicle sticks and a small flower pot these are not only a cinch to make, but they're economical. These would be great on your Mother's Day table as place cards as well.
For this project you need the following:__________________________________________
Card Stock: 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" pieces of card stock ( I used Pumpkin Pie, Primrose Petals and Wisteria Wonder)
Punches: Stampin' Up! Blossom Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, Blossom Petals Builder Punch (For Leaves), 3/4" Circle Punch
Embellishments: Soda Pop Tops, 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon, In-Color Dahlias
Non-Stampin' Up! :
3-1/2" Clay Flower Pot, Styrofoam Ball, Paper Grass and Wide Popsicle Sticks
Here's what to do:____________________________________________________________
1. Punch six flowers out of card stock. You need two of each color using the same punch. You want three pairs of flowers for the front and back of the popsicle sticks.
2. Run the punched flowers through the BIG Shot with an embossing folder.
3. Adhere the flowers on the popsicle sticks with All-Purpose White Glue.
4. For each flower center punch a 3/4" Circle out of Designer Series Paper, (I used Summer Smoochies) and adhere them to the flower centers.
5. On the top of the 3/4" flower centers, place a small Soda Pop Top and in the center of the pop top adhere an In-Color Dahlia with a Glue Dot.
6. With the Blossom Petals Builder Punch, punch out 12 leaves, Use a designer series paper with a green pattern. Glue the leaves together around the popsicle sticks.
7. Cut the styrofoam ball in half and glue it into the flower pot. Stick the popicile sticks through the styrofoam ball, then glue the top of the styrofoam ball and place some of the paper grass on it.
8. Around the top rim of the flower pot, cut a 12" x 1/2' strip of designer series paper. Over the seam place a pretty whit bow made from the Whisper White Organza Ribbon.
And there you have a darling flower pot to give as a gift just in time for Mother's Day!
