DIY: How to Make A Sweet Succulent Garden Planter

“Oh So Succulent?”  I think the name of this stamp set and coordinating Big Shot dies should be “Oh So Realistic!”  The first time I saw one of these planters in person, I couldn’t believe how much they look like the real thing.  In fact, I had to come up with a top 5 reasons to LOVE the Oh So Succulent stamps – part of the Succulent Garden suite from the Occasions Catalog.  So here goes…

Top 5 Reasons to Love the Succulent Garden Suite

  1. AMAZINGLY realistic when they die cuts are curved and sponged!  (And I’ll show you how to do that in the video tutorial.)
  2. The die cutting is SO easy – just put all the dies for the large plant on a single run through the Big Shot.  Ta-da!  (In the video I’ll also show you how they fit on a 3″ strip of card stock.)
  3. Cupping the flower layers is so rewarding – they just jump right up for a big ‘wow’ every time. (Yup, also in the video.)
  4. The dies coordinate with the Oh So Succulent stamp set, which includes a Mother’s Day sentiment – along with a ton of stamp & cut elements that make for great projects.
  5. I’m in love with the color scheme.  I’ll probably tell you in the video, but this one didn’t jump out at me.  In fact, I didn’t even like it.  I DISliked it.  Until I saw it in person.  Yeah, and here it is…featured in a whole bunch of blog posts.  As a woman, I’m perfectly entitled to change my mind, right??

This project is actually included with my March Stamps in the Mail Club kits.  I do still have a couple on hand, but be sure to request yours before they run out!  You can make your own sweet succulent gift box – can’t wait to hear what you’d put inside as the bonus treat!  (Because we all know that the box is a treat all by iteself!)

  1. Hi Meg, I followed your video enough to very very closely resemble your box and my customers loved it!! They wanted to know how I did it so I’ll be sending them to your video! Thanks so much for sharing! (I used it as favors for my ladies for my annual Sale-a-bration Celebration this evening!)
