For the tulips I used the Oval1 on page 22 cut at 3/4 inch and I cut 3 per tulip. I used some retired patterned paper and inked the edges all the way around the ovals before gluing them together. I cut the stems from from scrap New England Ivy as well as the leaves (just elongated leaf with point at end).
Here is a great tutorial for how to make a Flower Pot card with pictures to show you how the pot is cut.Thank you Stephanie Luman for posting this terrific tutorial. I changed the dimensions a bit. My Autumn Terracotta cardstock was cut 3 1/2 x 8 " , I scored @ 1" and 3 1/2". I also embossed the bottom of the pot with a cuttlebug folder for character.
These cards are longer than a standard size invitation card, the height is about 7 inches, and the width 4 1/4.
As always if you have any questions, I will be happy to try and answer them.
I'd love to know what you think, so please leave me a comment. Thanks and have a wonderful Day!

The base is an open tray made from a piece of 12x8 inch cardstock. Score 2 inches from all 4 edges and fold on score lines. I mitered the corners bringing the fold to the inside and glued securely with liquid glass and clamped with clothes pins to dry. Then I cut a 1 inch by 6 x 4 piece of Styrofoam of the inside of the tray to stick the tulips into. Cover Styrofoam with Easter grass and my planter box of tulips is done to make me smile.
