We made these great Topiaries at Stamp Camp yesterday. They are gorgeous. Katie Ford, my downline was the demonstrator for this gorgeous project. We used the razzleberry lemonade dsp to make them. They are made with 2 Styrofoam spheres attached to a dowel that is inserted into the clay pots and covered with moss. She used the 5 petal punch to make the base flower, the boho blossom punch to make the middle flower and the three flower punch to make the center - all punches and paper by SU! They are attached to the Styrofoam spheres with pins that have white heads. These look great, and everyone agreed that they loved the project.
Here Amanda is in the foreground with her topiary and Katie Ford is in the background. Each of the topiaries had a slightly different look because each person got a different paper from the pack and since the paper is double sided, you could use either side. Some were more pink, some more purple, some more orange and some more yellow in color.

This is Hsiao-hui putting the finishing touches on her topiary. Don't you love how her outfit is all the new IN COLORS?

Sharon and Lori are working on their topiaries. They are using a bone folder to curl the 5 petal punched flowers. In the foreground you can see the topiary bases.
Katie put all of these together for us and I think we determined that
she punched just over 2400 flowers for everyone!
You go girl! You rock!

More stamp camp photos and projects tomorrow!


  1. Hi Maria,

    I'm not sure if my last question made it, for some reason it's coming up an error using my google account.

    I absolutely love your BEAUTIFUL topiaries!

    First, what are the sizes of the clay pots & the styrofoam spheres?

    Second, what do you have in the pot for the base to hold it straight?

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful project!

  2. Oh I just love these... They are just BEAUTIFUL!!! How many sheets of DSP does it take to make one of these. I would also like to know the size of the clay pots and the styrofoam balls.

  3. I love these too. I would like to know all the info too please ...
