  1. Score the 10” x 6.2” light blue marbled cardstock to create a card sized 6.2” x 5”.
  2. With the fold at the left, centre and glue the navy blue cardstock to the front of the card.

  6. Glue a strip of crochet lace across the vase and cut off any protruding edges.
  7. Punch five flowers each from the pink pearlised and darker blue marbled cardstock.
  8. Cut the jem wires into smaller pieces, ranging from 4.2” and shorter. You will need five pieces of wire.
  9. Add glue to a blue flower. Put one jem wire on the blue flower before adding the pink flower on top of blue, and pressing down so that the glue will stick the two flowers together.
  10. Do the same with the rest of the flowers.

  11. Measure where the vase will be on the card. Add a small piece of poster tack to the card and stick the ends of the wires into the poster tack. The flowers should not all be on the same level. Add a drop of glue over the poster tack to keep the wires in place.
  12. Add glue to the vase and glue it to the card, making sure that all the wires come out of the top of the vase before pressing it down.

I like the idea the artisan has happening here! I can see this 3D Flower Vase changed up for every season. In autumn you can change up the color scheme to oranges, rusts and add a few leaves around the vase. In winter put in red Poinsettias with a deep green lace. In spring you can leave as is. In summer you can do yellow sunflowers and wheat stalks. Wow! This is really adaptable!
