Welcome Home Succulent Four

When opening your Welcome Home Wreath Kit, you will notice that each “plant” is labeled. Today, I will be showing you a few tips for making Succulent Four.  You will follow the same instructions to make two of these succulents. Below the instructions is a list of the products I used to create these paper succulents.

Purchase this kit to attend my FREE  Workshop  and receive one-on-one instructions to create this beautiful home decor project. 

I wanted each of my paper succulents to look like a real plant, so, once again, I “googled” succulent plants.  This succulent with the grey leaves and purple edges was perfect and I decided to use it as an example for creating Succulent Four. Related image

Using our Round Sponge and Raspberry Exclusive Ink Pad, I inked the edges of each of the Succulent Four pieces.

To curl the leaves of the smaller pieces, I used the rounded end of our Piercing and Embossing Tool . I placed the mat under my leaves and gently rubbed the rounded end on the inner part of each leaf to create the curl.

I found it much easier to layer each of the sizes together first.  I used our Bonding Memories Glue Pen to assemble each layer. This glue also gave me a little time to rotate the pieces if needed before it dried.

Once each of the layers had dried, I stacked them from largest to smallest. Once again, I used our Bonding Memories Glue Pen and rotated each until it looked like the real plant. I wanted the top two layers to be a little higher, so I used our Thin 3D Foam Tape to adhere these last two layers.

To add curl to each leaf, I used our Tweezers . They also allowed me to add a fold to the center of a few leaves.

The kit comes with Gold Dot stickers. I took a rolled Micro Glue Dot and placed it under each sticker to give it a three-dimensional look. You can add more gold embellishment by edging the leaves with our New Gold Shimmer Brush. succulentfour
