1) Using two different sized scallop circle punches, punch enough circles to make (3) three layered flowers (so six medium circles, three small circles).
AC-12) Using either your trimmer or scissors, cut some small strips of green cardstock (this will be your grass). The cut doesn’t have to be perfect.
AC - 23) Crinkle your small strips of cardstock.
AC - 34) Place the crinkled strips inside the watering can as grass. You can use glue if you want to make sure it will stay in place.
AC - 45) Crinkle up your flowers - this will give them a fun dimensional effect.
