The Terrarium that never dies!

by Lisa Lahiff | 5 years ago

Hello wonderful blogging friends!  It's Lisa Lahiff here today from the DCWV Social Media Design Team and I am so excited to share a project that is new for me with you all today.  When I first saw the DIY Project Stack® Paper Plants I was super giddy! (This stack is available at your local Jo-Ann Store).  I have been wanting a terrarium of sorts as of late, and when I saw I could make my own with one stack... it was a match made in heaven!  Take a peek…





All of the directions are in the stack itself, along with the paper and templates you will need.  Other items you will need include: strong double sided adhesive or hot glue gun, scissors, marker and dowel rod/pencil.  Here are a peek at what my Succulent started out as…



I choose three colors to give it a gradient effect, you can go as funky or as realistic as you would like when choosing your colors.  I then traced the stencils, trimmed them and adhered them all together.  At this point I used  a pencil to help curl the edges of my succulent.  Finally, I added a rhinestone to the center.


I also have some tips for creating the terrarium itself.  Make sure you draw the additional parts with your marker a little larger than the actual lines; this way you can cut on the inside so your marks will not be on the final project.  I also found it helpful to use a score blade on my paper trimmer to make the score lines easy to fold at the end.  Ta-da!
