Hello friends! It’s finally time to shop the March Release from My Favorite Things! I have some fun 3D flower pots to share with you today that feature the new Planted Blooms Die-namics. This technique is actually quite simple and I have included a step by step picture tutorial below if you are interested in trying this fun design yourself!

These little potted plants would make the perfect 3D card, party favor, or decorations! The best news is that they easily fold to fit into a standard A2 sized envelope or smaller.

If you decided that you wanted to ship this, make sure to add a piece of heavy card stock on each side of your plant to avoid bending/folding during transit.

To start, you will diecut 4 pots from the card stock of your choice. I used Persimmon Prestige for mine. Next, take one of the pots and stamp your sentiment. For all of my sentiments, I used the Little Love Notes Stamp Set.

To hold the pot together, you will want to trim 4 pieces of card stock (using the same color that you chose in the steps above) at 1″ x 1″ and score them all at 1/2″. Fold along the score lines as shown.

Take two of the potted base pieces and trim off the small overlay on the tabs as shown above. Next, start to glue the base together by attaching one whole pot to the trimmed pot as shown.

Repeat the process until you attach all 4 pieces together (as seen above).

Next, trim 2 pieces for your flower section and glue them together. This helps to provide extra strength so that the flowers can stand upright easily once the colored portions of the flowers are added. Once you have this double layer secured, trim to small strips of card stock (same color as above) as shown. They don’t need to be perfect, just make sure that they are slightly longer than the base of the floral piece.

Add some liquid adhesive to each side of the foral base and attach one of your strips on each side.

Manually fold the edge of each strip in the opposite direction so that the flowers can stand upright if placed on a flat surface.

You will then add some more liquid adhesive to the edge of each strip and attach this portion to the inside of the pot as shown.

Lastly, you just diecut the trim and pieces of leaves and flowers in the colors of your choice and attach them with liquid adhesive. Voila! It’s super easy to do and so much fun!

In case you missed it, here are some other projects that I created with this new release. Just click on each photo for more details!
