A handmade spring project is the perfect fix for winter blues. This super trendy paper vase brings a touch of modern wonder to a colorful bouquet.

A bright palette of colorful flowers will compliment the contemporary design.
A 3D paper vase is a really awesome alternative to those expensive cards you come across in the store. When I go to buy a card for Mother's Day or birthday I sometimes dig the fancy cards with layers of paper and small embellishments but the prices are eye popping! With a little effort and determination you can put together this modern vase for a super personal card or just as a beautiful piece of art for your home.

Yes, I made the stamps used for the flowers in this project. I've mentioned before and I'll mention again that I love carving my own stamps. I use a Speedball Speedy-Carve Block, I get 'em at Michaels. They are pink rubber blocks just like the material you'd find on one of those fancy, expensive stamps in the craft store. Depending on the size of the block it could get pricey but totally worth it because you can make several of your own images instead of buying a bunch of over priced stamps which will cost you way more than buying the blank carving blocks.
I recommend carving your own stamps, it is a very satisfying technique and you'll love the results, give it a try. Remember that you'll need a lino cutter, which is the tool used to cut into these blocks!
Step 1. Print and cut out the vase with a scissor or craft knife.
Step 2. Score all of the lines including both solid and dotted. Use a craft knife or something like a credit card to score the lines.
Step 3. All of the solid lines get folded towards you while the dotted lines get folded away from you, imagine this vase is folded like an accordion.
Step 4. Fold the flaps back, add glue and gently press the vase to your background.
Add flowers to your vase how you'd like, could be real, dried or fresh, painted, made from tissue paper etc. Get creative and enjoy your modern spring vase!
