I made this flower box for my daughters teacher who is retiring. He said he would like to garden more so I thought a flower box would be great!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Glue Dots
  • Black Vinyl 12x24
  • White Vinyl 12x24
  • Suckers
  • Flower Box
  • styrofoam for dry flowers

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut saying out on black vinyl. This is so it looks like a black board. Make sure to center it on vinyl. My box was 15in x 4 in. You will be using the vinyl sheet and not the letters. Save the middle of the letters to add detail. You can save the letters for the other side of the box or for another gift.
Put the black vinyl on top of the white vinyl carefully. This takes some time so it doesn't have bubbles. Add the middle black pieces of the letters. Now it looks like white chalk on the blackboard.
Add styrofoam ( you can find them at the dollar store, they are green) you can use a glue dot to keep them in place. If the box is deep stack 2 on top of each other. Just puch a sucker all the way through both pices to keep in place.
Add suckers, flowers or any other embellishments.
