Bucket ‘o Flowers Greeting Card

March 29, 2012

Roof flashing has officially become my new favorite crafty supply. After using it to make some Cuttlebug art, I decided to see what I could make manipulating it with my two hands. This leads me to the greeting card I made for my MIL for her birthday. I wanted a dimensional pot to go with my silk flowers, so I cut a bit of the roof flashing (with my utility scissors) into a bucket shape and then rolled it over a dowel (a pen would work too) until I got an acceptable arc. I used a craft awl (a small nail would work too) to poke a  hole on each side of the bucket, and then I threaded fine-gauge wire through the holes to fashion a handle. As far as the picnic table goes, that’s just some hard cardboard bent into shape. Both were attached with foam tape.
