Echo Park Mother's Day Cactus Gift Set

Hello Echo Park Fans! It's Tya and I am up on the blog today sharing with you a fun Mother's Day gift set that was entirely inspired by all the adorable cactus elements in the Just Be You collection! I LOVED this collection so much! From the color palate to all the amazing icons - I couldn't wait to design this gift set using some of my favorite pieces.

Now if your mom is anything like me and born without a green thumb - then this little gift set will be just what she needs. These 3D cactus and plants that I made need absolutely no watering! :) Here are a few close ups of the plants. I used several Silhouette cut files to make the plants. The exact ones I used I will link in the supply list below. The plants were cut from cardstock and some of the Solid Cardstock sheets that go with this collection.

I used a yellow tin bucket from my local craft store to hold the plants. I added some Styrofoam pieces to the inside and then add the paper plants into the Styrofoam using skewers to hold them. I then added some mint paper shreds to fill the planter and cover the foam up. I hot glued the flowers to the tops of the cactus.

I also made a card to go with the planter set. Here are some close ups of the card:

Hopefully I have inspired you to try you hand at making some 3 dimensional plants - they really pack a lot of punch and are super low maintenance to take care of. Thank you so much for stopping by today! Happy Mother's Day!
