Celebrating Spring in a Flower Pot…

DSC_0398

Hello, Lakeside Stampers and welcome back!  This project is the last one from my Easter/Spring Class. I alway like to show how versatile Stampin’ Up! products can be. This small flower pot was purchased at a local store. You can use any stamp set you want depending on a theme, holiday or occasion. For this particular one obviously we chose an Easter Spring theme.

I first cut a template in a conical shape by rolling the flower pot onto a manila file folder and tracing the bottom part of the rim and the bottom of the pot.  Once I had the template I then traced that onto the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper. I cut a 3/4″ x 12″ stripe to go around the rim and cut off the access.

For the images I stamped them from the Picnic Parade Stamp Set in Basic Black onto Whisper White Card Stock. I stamped each image about 10 times, one for each class attendee, and brought my original to the copy center and had a reverse copy made for the backs of the images. After hand coloring the images with my  Stampin’ Up! Markers, I cut both the front and back out, glued them together with the Tombow All-Purpose Adhesive, which by the way is terrific, and stuck a toothpick in between the front and back as shown to the left. 

 

 

For the “Spring” banner I used computer generated type, cut close to the letters and glued it to the bunny’s banner.

 

 

The basket was done in a similar manner to the bunny and I added Easter eggs cut from Card Stock in Springtime colors. A bow was made out of Pretty-in-Pink Satan Ribbon.

The stamp of the mailbox in this set inspired me to make teeny-tiny mail boxes. Don’t ask me what I was thinking! After a lot of playing around this is what I came up with:

You can make these any size just play around with proportions I added real tiny branches gathered in my yard for the mailbox posts.
