Terrarium and Cacti

Was planning on making these for Christmas gifts this year, but this one has took me so long I think I would still be making them in 2022!!!! Made from kraft card and acetate and Simply Made Craft dies. Unfortunately, even though I followed the instructions (which had some wrong size measurements for the acetate!), my lid did not fit correctly, on the larger version it hinges and sits flush but mine ending up being too big so have slotted it on like a green house. Also made the hexagonal pot and cacti from Simply Made Craft dies too. Will probably make some Cati in pots to give as gifts instead!! x

Thank you for your kind words Sue, you can make up the frames and use on cards, so will probably use them for that. Xx
