Flower Pot Card

I found this really cute idea on Stephanie Sluman's blog and came up with my own version to teach at Stamp Club Tuesday night. Everyone really enjoyed it... although it can be a bit tedious.

The pot is made with Chocolate Chip cardstock 4 inches by9 1/2 inches and scored long way at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2 inches. Fold the small flap over and punch with the Scallop Edge punch and pierce holes in each scallop. Then I tied the wide Olive grosgrain ribbon around the pot and added the tag made with the BigShot Lots of Tags die and stamped "For You" from the Great Friend set. The pot is only held together with the ribbon... there is no sticky strip or other adhesive along the sides.The card part that inserts into the pot is made with Ivory Naturals carstock, cut at 3 3/4 inches and then the sides are cut to fit the pot. The flowers come from the Die Cut Blooms set and the leaves are made with the Five Petal Punch. I just arranged the flowers until I was happy and then added some olive flower middles using the 1/2" and 3/4 " circle punches and added a few gold brads to bling it up a bit. I hope you like it.
