Helen's Glitter and Button Flower Pots

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Look at these really cute post it note holders that my friend Helen made for us today. Helen works for Blumenthal Lansing and I am visiting her this week in New Jersey. Here is Helen to tell you how to make them:

You need:
  • Creatology flower die cuts (get these at Michaels and they come in other flower shapes too)
  • scrapbook paper
  • ribbon
  • fine glitter, color of your choice
  • Mod Podge
  • flat paintbrush
  • glue of your choice
  • acrylic paint: color of your choice
  • small post it note
  • pencil
  • scissors
To make it:
1. Lay the die cut on the paper and trace the pot. Cut it out.
2. Paint flower and stem. Let dry.
3. Use glue or Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the pot.
4. Glue a piece of ribbon to trim the pot.
5. Brush a coat of Mod Podge on the flower head. While it is wet, sprinkle glitter over it. Shake off excess and recycle it.
6. Glue buttons across ribbon trim and wherever you like on the flower. You can layer some buttons or glue them individually.

7. Place the post it note pad where you like it.

You could add a magnet to the back and put it on the fridge, or sit it on your desk, or attach two together to make a card, or glue it to the front of your notebook to keep yourself organized. Be creative, I bet you can think up many good ideas for this cute project!

My thanks to Helen. Don't you just love cute button projects??
Glitter on!
