Flower Pot Card

Another item from my recent dem day, this little plant pot makes a great card in it's own right.
The pot has a fold-in section which pulls out to make a base so it stands up,
but if you punch out or die cut some flowers and stick them on little sticks then add button centres......
they will pop into the top slot of the plant pot to make a super Spring or Easter Greeting.
It's also an excellent idea to give as a get well card to people who are ill as many hospitals no longer allow fresh flowers to be taken into the wards. The flowers could be tied in a bunch for the recipient to arrange into the pot.
I did also add a tag on a stick for a message but accidentally left it out of the photo.
A butterfly or two could be included but here I added a little bird.
This idea came from the slightly quirky one, below, that I made ages ago using PaperArtsy Stamps but in that one the flowers were not removable.
I'll make a template for the card, if anyone can't just figure it out, but it will have to be after I get home next week.

That is a great idea for a card Jo, I love the steam punk flowers as an alternative as well. I will try and work it out.
