This wrapped decor piece was really fun to make. I am using a tall vase from the Dollar Tree and wrapping it with Stardream Metallic Bronze cardstock. My initial plan was just to do the wrap but when I saw the pieces that were weeded out of the cardstock, they looked like petals to me and I just couldn’t let those go to waste. And I am glad I didn’t because the addition of the flowers really adds to the vase.
I used this beautiful Stardream Metallic Bronze cardstock. The cardstock is smooth and metallic. The base of the cardstock is black with a mica pearlescent coating on both sides. It really is beautiful and shimmery in person.
This cardstock is thick, it’s 105#. I tend to use washi tape to make sure it doesn’t slip or move while cutting. I used a setting of 100# cardstock. Cutting it twice would definitely help.
I couldn’t waste those petal shapes. Making a double-layered flower, I added a center of gold and a green metallic embellishment dot. Plus I have more petal shapes I can use for another project.
Here you can see a close-up of the flower as well as the wrap around the vase. The pattern the wrap projects with a light inside is beautiful. I chose to add an electric tea light into the vase, I am not sure about a real candle with paper on the outside.
