Hello Pebbles’ fans, Eva Pizarro here bringing you a quick tutorial for making cute geometric planters to decorate your home.
I love to have fresh flowers at our house, but sometimes I don’t have time to buy them. That’s why I prefer to have small pots with plants. I love succulents because they are easy to care for, and if I go away for a couple of days I know they are going to be fine.
I was inspired by this planter and thought I would use my Triangle Score Guide from We R Memory Keepers to make all the scoring. It is really easy. The tool comes with a booklet of basic instructions, and you just need to follow them to have your paper full of triangles.
Start with your 12×12 paper and score every 2 inches (I also did one scored every inch).
Place your Triangle Score Guide with side A facing up, rotate your paper 60 degrees counter clockwise and score again every two inches. You may have to move your Triangle Score Guide on your scoring board to be able to score all the paper.
Flip your Triangle Score Guide, rotate your paper 120 degrees clock wise and score again every 2 inches.
Score the horizontal lines in one direction. Flip your paper and score all the diagonal lines in the other one.
Trim your paper at the desired height using the horizontal lines as your guide and wrap your pot holders. If your paper is not wide enough just glue two pieces together making sure you match the scored lines.
You can also cut triangles and glue them to your planters to embellish them. I used the 6×6 paper pad from the Cottage Living line because the colors were perfect for my living room.
Use the metallic clips and a toothpick to make little signs and write your succulent’s name.
I loved how mine turned out! It is beautiful to have some green around the house.
Have a great week!
