Potted Faux Flower Craft

DIY Faux Flower Craft Instructions

  1. Cut your vase using a mat board. Make a sizzix sandwich by doing cutting pad, dye, board, and the cutting pad on the top as well.  

  2. Now, cut your flower, using paper leather leather materials and whatever die cuts you would like.

  3. Make some notches in your flower layer that will be on the bottom of your flower to help it have a more 3D shape. Crinkle up every layer of your flower. 

  4. Take your ink and begin adding color your flowers. Do this to both sides of each layer of petals. Then spritz your flower with a little bit of water to give your flower a water color affect.

  5. Using a twist and style tool make your stem and embellish the tip of it with a button. Then, add your flower petals onto the back of your stem and push them all the way up. 

    Pro Tip: To get the petals to stay in place and not slide off, you can glue it in place, you could use a flower calli.

  6. Add your leaves using the same technique that you did for the petals, or glue the leaves right onto the back of your flower. 

  7. Assemble your vase by folding it on every score line. Then, tape the to ends of your your vase together. Add the bottom part to your vase. 

  8. Using a styrofoam ball, adapt the size of the ball by taking it and pressing it along the edges to make it a little smaller to help it fit into your vase. Then, add some fleece to the top of your ball and pin or glue it in place.

  9. ​Put that int your vase to act as the grass. Put your flower in place.
