Project Instructions

  • 1
    Download and print the project templates before starting. Use the templates to cut out the flower shapes from assorted solid color and decorative cardstocks.
  • 2
    Curl the edges of the petals by running your fingers across the petal and bringing them up at the tips.
  • 3
    Attach layers of flowers together with adhesive foam circles.
  • 4
    Push a straight pin through the center of a flower and then through the eraser of a pencil. Push all the way through and cut off the back of the pin with the wire cutters. You can ask a adult to do this part. After the pin is cut off, press what is showing of the pin on a table top so there is no sharp point showing. Glue a rhinestone to the front center of the flower over the pin.
  • 5
    Repeat to make as many flowers as you would like.
  • 6
    Cut six inch pieces of ribbon and tie each one around a pencil for leaves. Trim the ends.
  • 7
    Print out the tag on snowcap cardstock and cut out. Punch out the hole.
  • 8
    Cut a 26 inch piece of ribbon and tie around the top edge of the pot, threading on the tag. Tie a bow in the front. Trim the ends. You have just created a great thank you gift!
