Disclosure: This is post is part of Michael’s #createtoeducate campaign and I received a gift card for my supplies. All opinions are mine.
Here’s a cute little back to school gift that is completely applicable and useful for the classroom!
Americana Chalky Finish Paint
6″ Double-Sided Cardstock
Paint the jar with the the Americana Chalky Finish paint and while it is drying we’ll work on the flowers.
First, cut flowers out. I used a Cricut Explore and one of their 3D flowers. The hole is already in the middle and was the perfect size to fit over the eraser. I cut 5 layers that gradually get smaller from double sided cardstock. All 5 flowers fit perfectly on the 6″ cardstock, which was perfect! I love double sided cardstock because the colors always coordinate and you can get a different patterns without having to load and cut a ton of paper in the Cricut.
Once the flowers are cut, crumple them. This will give them dimension and texture.
See how they no longer lay flat and the petals go both up and down.
Then simply slide the petals over the eraser and arrange so that the edges alternate and you can see the scalloped edges.
Place flowers in the painted jar and tie up with baker’s twine.
