I have a real treat for you today. Pretty Paper Succulents! Succulent gardens have been showing up everywhere, especially here in California where so many people have changed out their green lawns for drought tolerant landscaping. Besides outdoor succulent gardens, miniature succulent gardens have made their way indoors in a variety of home decorating trends. I find them very intriguing, but the real thing would probably not do very well in my home because there just isn't enough sunlight that comes in. Ask me how I know this. Uhh...yeah, I was given a beautiful succulent garden a couple of years ago from my students and it ended up outside on the porch. It did not like living inside my townhome. They actually outgrew their container and are now happily planted in the ground outside my front door.
With that little story told, and the abundance of succulent gardens popping up everywhere, and all of the ideas on Pinterest, and the fact that several stamp companies were now making succulent stamp sets, and even Stampin' Up! came out with a set with coordinating dies this month - which I ordered, but have yet to receive - led me to do what I do a lot of...make my own. (Okay, that right there was the second grade teacher's nightmare. A run-on sentence! The horrors!)
I am extremely patient with a lot of things, but NOT when it comes to something that is tugging at my creative senses and screaming at me. I have to make it NOW!
So, make it now I did and I'd like to share the files with you. There are four different "varieties" of succulents included in the file that you can mix and match to create endless succulents for creating your own little garden that does not need sunlight and you won't even risk the chance of it dying because you forget to water it or you over watered it.
As with all of my files, I include SVG files for electronic cutting machines and PDFs for those of you that don't own electronic cutting machines and would like to print them out and cut them by hand. Also included is a full-color tutorial with step-by-step instructions on creating these little beauties.
You know you can't wait to get gardening!
Please allow me up to 48 hours to e-mail you the files once your payment has been verified. In most cases you will receive an e-mail from me much sooner.
