Pop-Up Vase of Flowers

Step 1

Project and template designed by Sara Sandberg

Step 3

Ink the edges of your pieces! You can use the flowers provided or any shaped punch or die flowers.

Step 2

Fold the score lines on your vase and put glue on the folded in tab as shown. Fold the vase flat in half over on to the glued tab.

Now we are going to attach the strip. Of course, you don’t have to have the strip if you don’t want it!

Flatten your vase with the join centre front. Without sticking, wrap your strip round it, with the two ends meeting front centre.

Open one side out as shown, add glue and fold it back to stick. Repeat with the other side.

There is no need to add glue to the front of the vase strip, as it is secure now, and sticking it all the way round sometimes stops it opening and shutting freely.

Step 4

Stick a flower stem to a flower.

Step 5

Stick the front part of the flower over the stem.

Add the circle to the centre.

Repeat with the remaining flowers.

Use stems a lot longer than needed so that we can arrange them in the vase and cut to the right length in the next steps.
