3D Watering Can

Today’s post is a little gift I have made for my KS4 manager, Joan, who is putting on a BBQ tomorrow for some of us as a thank you for our hard work this term. We haven’t been asked to take anything but I just cannot be invited anywhere without taking a gift, no matter how small it may be.
I found a template for this cute little watering can (which can found here) and decided to have a go, it’s made with River Rock cardstock randomly stamped with the small leaf from 'Lovely as a Tree' in River Rock, added tags from Tiny Tags, cut with the Jewelry Tag punch, again in River Rock and I embossed just the spout with the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder. The daisies were made in Whisper White and River Rock, using the Flower Daisies die, and the centres are a punched circle covered with Crystal Effects and a sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds. The empty one, made with Soft Suede, was my first practise attempt but, as it’s empty, shows the watering can to better effect.This would make a perfect gift for someone in hospital now that so many do not allow fresh flowers (and you wouldn't have the bother of making sure they're kept watered!)
Let’s just hope the rain stays away tomorrow!!


  1. An absolutely beautiful gift Margaret! Everything you make looks so professional. This is going to be so well received and the talk of the BBQ I think! xx
