HOW TO: mini flower pot

I wanted to share the process for creating the cover of the mini flower pot in the set shown HERE.

Here are the materials that inspired the set:

I removed the cover from the flower pot and traced the outside of the cover as well as the two inner areas that were open. Then, I cut it out. I used a craft knife to cut out the inner areas. I used a new craft knife by Fiskars that makes it so much easier to do (Michaels, $5.99). See the picture after this one for a shot of it. It is the orange handled tool. You can see my score measurements below. Yes, I have written 5 7/8 minus one line. LOL It is an exact science ya know? LOL

Here is the piece cut out along with the Fiskars craft knife that makes cutting much easier.

Here is the pot cover, on the pot.

Here is the finished, decorated cover.

Above is the completed set!
