Hello again! I’m just popping in to show you all what we made in class today – a framed paper succulent picture! The inspiration for our frame came from a number of sources on Pinterest, but this one from Rebecca at The Crafted Sparrow, was the one that pushed me to create this frame.

IMG_0197-editedWe used a few different punches and Big Shot cutting accessories to achieve these succulents. The biggest ones were made from Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla cardstock, using the Fun Flower punch.

The little bundle of stamens next to the big succulent was made from Mint Macaron cardstock, using the Bouquet Bigz L die. Some leaf strands were also cut from this die, using Mossy Meadow cardstock. Smaller succulents were cut from Blackberry Bliss and Sahara Sand cardstock, using Petite Petals punch, and Flower Fair Framelits.

After all the succulents were assembled, they were hot glued to a sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock, which was placed inside the picture frame. And here it is, the finished product:

I hope this has inspired you to create your own succulent picture! ‘Til next time x

      Thankyou Christine! We didn’t sponge around the edges due to the time constraints with a 2hr class, but it would certainly make the succulents ‘pop’ more, with some sponging :) x
