Succulents, the paper kind

I love creating with paper, and though I don’t do it very often,
I find the end result very rewarding whenever I do.
Sometimes I have a clear idea of what I want to create, but not a
clear idea of how I will execute such ideas, so I end up putting it aside.
But the ideas will keep nagging and nagging me, until I just have to try.
And it’s kinda cool when it turns out how you envisioned it in your mind.
When I set out to make these paper succulents, I wasn’t sure
how they would turn out, but I think they turned out pretty cute.
I used Canvas Corp chipboard handmade white
paper (here), my water colors and a little bit of creativity.
These paper succulents were actually very easy
to make and I’ll share the tutorial (next week).

In the mean time, don’t forget The Inspiration Gallery
will be up tonight at 7:00pm.  I hope to see you then!

much love,
Don’t forget to follow along, to get sneak
 peeks of upcoming projects, or just to keep in touch:

    Oh I can’t wait for the tutorial! I have some tin buckets I want to hang on my wall with succulents, but I really didn’t want to have to water them since they would be staying on my wall for a while. ; )

    I’m so glad that nagging feeling propelled you to action. Your plants are super cute. I had to look twice to realize they are handmade. I will be waiting for the tutorial but you should know, the suspense will be unbearable!

    Lucy…I love these imposter succulents! I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to keep my porch succulents alive inside during the winter months. This is a great idea and I love the white washed pots :)
