3-D Watering Can

Paper Temptress papers are so wonderful and versatile, the papers add so much to cards and scrap book pages and of course paper projects.

Given that we are in the middle of “growing” season, I thought it would be fun to make a 3-D Watering Can, something you can make but do a number of cute things with.

I decided to light my “can” with a led candle light, but you could also add paper flowers or anything else that would fit inside the can.

First of all I decided to use the Star Dreams “Crystal” Card Stock for the project, added a background of alcohol inks, then stamped a Tim Holtz stamp over the entire sheet of paper and embossed the stamped images. After I was finished with the background I printed out the 3-D Watering Can template on the back of the paper, cut it out and then put the can together.

The Star Dreams paper takes alcohol ink so well, and it leaves a beautiful pattern that looks almost like marble, just amazing.

Here is the link to the template, and here is my can with a green led light inside:

And here is the can with the light turned off:

Hope you like the project! Have a great rest of the day and an even better tomorrow.
