My orchid died the other day (so sad) and left me with a perfectly empty pot, which I thought was impeccable timing to make a stamped Valentine treat flower pot since I, just received some fun items to design with.
The idea had been brewing for several days, but when I received my new Hero Arts Tag Collage stamp set and Bo Bunny Love Letters 6×6″ pad, I immediately started in on making a small mess in my craft room. Really, I just can’t seem to not make a mess when I get going, even if I hardly use any supplies at all! Do you happen to know anyone like that?
I love both of these products even though I was not expecting the tag set to be so large! I was actually expecting it to be about half the size, but I am really pleased with how large it is, because I have LOTS of ideas for it now!
I measured both bottom and rim of pot (Haha, that’s a joke for those of you who know I can’t measure) by putting the paper where I wanted it and made a dent with my finger so I would know where to cut. Then I cut the bottom paper approximately every inch to allow for overlapping, since the bottom tapers more than the rim. I adhered both top and bottom with my ATG adhesive. If you are new to ATG, you want to make sure you place the paper EXACTLY where you want it before setting it down, because it will not move once you’ve placed it!
I stamped three flowers and one tag using Tim Holtz Distress Inks, then freehand cut around each of them. I glued one to the tag and matched the other two up as best as I could over a long wood pick, which I had also inked as well as the leaves, glued Hershey Kisses for the centers of the flowers, and placed some in the pot, tied raffia to the tag and I was finished! Easy!
