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!
