Succulent projects seem to be the latest DIY trend in the craft world. However if you're like me, you may worry more about keeping the plant alive than making the actually DIY project. Personally, I am one of those people who wasn't born with green bone (none the less a green thumb) in there body. So I've always been a fan of those DIY projects which give you that pretty plant look without the worry of whether it will die or not.
Recently, when I saw these Waffle Flower Die-Pots the thought of succulents came to my mind. I thought it would be cool to create little succulent-like plants out of paper and then incorporate the Waffle Flower Die-Pots in some way. Now for those of you who are not familiar with Waffle Flower, there die-cuts are made from metal and come connected together. They are designed to be cut apart, then run through your die cutting machine, in order to get your desire design (in this case a flower pot).
Now I don't have a die cutting machine but that shouldn't mean that we crafters should be deprived of the ''die cutting cuteness''. So in order to get around this ''problem'', I just treated the Waffle Flower Die-Pots as embellishments. By doing this, it gave my finished flower pot a more unique look and made it look more like 3D embellishment you would buy pre-made at the craft store!
Once I had all my pieces together I still needed to add them to something, then I remember how my friend Morena had used a shadow frame in one of her projects. I thought the shadow frame would act as a good base for a clock and thats essentially how this project was born!
