I have been coveting Concrete Geometric’s planters and vases since the second I saw them! They are totally my style. Plus they are made using molds, and you guys know how I feel about that!!! LOVE!
I think the only reason I haven’t purchased one yet is because I haven’t really purchased ANYTHING for myself lately. I kinda put myself on a personal spending freeze so I can save for upcoming trips and some new equipment.
However I must dream about these things. When I was going through the Silhouette Design store looking for files for an upcoming project I saw a 3D paper succulent cut file and my absolute first thought was Concrete Geometric’s planters. I mean it only took seconds to think of how to make a paper version.
- For the succulent I used thick textured cardstock and the 3D succulent plant cut file (which I reduced 75% in size).
- For the faux concrete planter I used Silhouette brand chipboard and the 3D Pentagon cut file (which I reduced to fit on an 8.5″x12″ piece of chipboard since I have the Portrait)
- I used super fast drying Tacky Glue for all the seams and for attaching all of the leaves. There may have been a better glue to use, but I’m still learning. I think it worked out pretty nice though since it has handled being dropped a few times by a toddler.
I absolutely adore how the little faux plant came out. I was planning on placing it on one of the shelves in my living room, but CT claimed it as her own and it’s now living in her bedroom. Which basically means I really need to get the real thing!!!!
