Crate Paper Topiary
Designer: Lindsay Wahl

Adhesive: GlueArts Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac, Glue Gun, Extreme Squares
Patterned paper, chipboard, borders & stickers: Crate Paper
Buttons: Bo Bunny
Die Cut: Sizzix
Punch: Marvy
Topiary kit: Oriental Trading (you can also use a 4” Styrofoam ball, 12” wooden dowel and 3 ½” diameter flower pot to create your own kit)
Twine: The Twinery

1. Wrap twine around wooden dowel. Use glue gun to add small amount of hot glue to the dowel, and then wrap the twine around the glue. Repeat until you have covered the entire dowel. This will secure the twine. Once the adhesive has set, insert the dowel into the top part of the topiary.
2. Die cut 10 scalloped circles from 3 different patterned papers. Use extreme squares to adhere the scalloped circles to the foam ball. Use extreme squares to adhere the buttons to the scalloped circles.
3. For the flower pot, you will need to cut a piece of patterned paper into 10 strips that measure 1”x 2.” You will also need to cut a 3 ½” circle from the same patterned paper. Punch a 3” scalloped circle from another sheet of patterned paper.
4. Begin by adhering the strips, using the Pro, around the bottom of the pot. Overlap them slightly. You will have to soften the paper slightly by rubbing it with your fingertips. This allows it to wrap around the pot.
5. Use the Pro to adhere the two large circles onto the top of the flower pot. Add a border sticker around the top border of the pot.
6. Insert the dowel into the flower pot to complete the topiary. Enjoy!
