Jennifer Edwardson here with you today with this little Darice paper mâché flower pot that has been calling my name for a while now!  I LOVE the shimmer of the Gemstones cardstock and decided to create this entirely with all the fun colors I could. Plus, this is a GREAT way to use up scraps.

Supplies:

 Gemstones Cardstock: Opal, Moonstone, Tanzanite, Yellow Topaz, Quartz, Amethyst, Peridot, Garnet

Tim Holtz Kraft-Core

Misc flower punches and 1 1/2″ circle punch

Buttons and twine

1.) Start by punching out MANY 1 1/2″ circle of the Opal color and stared overlapping them all over the base of the pot using Mod Podge. I cut several in half for the rim as well.

2.) Put a styrofoam ball inside and covered it with kraft cut paper pieces that you can make on your own or buy at a local craft store.

3.) Punch multiple flowers using several colors and create flower picks using cut down wooden skewers.

    BEAUTIFUL!!!
    LOVE the shimmer on your flowers => YES, I really do NEED to get some Gemstones Cardstock!!!
    I LOVE making everlasting flower arrangements to give to sick family and friends, they’re also great for hospital patients too. I will definitely be looking out for some of these pots, until now I have been using recycled coffee jars and big vitamin bottles.
