Flower Pot Card

Well I just had to give it a try...the flower pot card! I have seen them on other people's blogs and thought about making these with my students for mother's day cards. Whew!! Way too much work. I had thought they would be easy - what was I thinking? It's not that it wasn't, but way too much cutting even with my Expressions.

I had planned to make 3 of them for Administrative Professionals Day and give them to the admins in the school. Well that's not happening - they just get a homemade card.

My flower pot managed to evolve into a birthday card for the school's Assistant Principal. I decided to not have the card pull out. I didn't want to write a personal message in the card, so I glued it in to hold the top heavy flowers. She can tack the card to her bulletin board.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my creation.
