Don't have a green thumb? Neither do I! That's why I love these cute paper flowers that I  "planted! I thought these flowers in a painted terra cotta pot would make the perfect gift to brighten someone's day!

I made this planter out of a 3-inch terra cotta pot that I painted with some white acrylic paint and then wrapped with some Playful Plaid paper. I then selected 5 flowers and 3 leaves from the Odds and Ends.  I  trimmed some floral wire and glued the flowers to them. I added a few Sprinkles to the centers of some of the flowers and then add some green paper shreds to the pot to fill it in. There is a styrofoam piece in the center of the pot that the floral wire is sticking in.

 Close up picture of the flowers. I love those shiny Sprinkle centers!
I also whipped up a quick card to go with the flower pot. I made the card using one of the Create-A-Card bases. I  trimmed a 4x6 inch piece of the lined paper side of the Bloomin' Bugs paper. I trimmed the aqua plaid paper from the 6x6 paper pad and notched the end into a banner shape. I then added the cute scallop floral sticker from the This and That sticker sheet and added more of those cute Sprinkles to the flower centers for some dimension. I added a green heart ephemera from the Odds and Ends and the cute banner is from the Chit Chat ephemera pieces.

This was a fun little project to put together in an afternoon! Who wouldn't love a little flower pot to brighten their day and  BONUS - no watering! LOL!  Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! Happy Crafting!
