Petite Pocket Vase Tutorial

I have been experimenting with the Petite Pocket Big Shot Die and I have a few fun things to show over the next few days.  First is a three sided vase made by combining the die cuts side by side and then curving the upper portion.
Here is the vase without the flowers to get a better feel for the shape.
And a close-up view.
Here is how to make it:
1. Using the Petite Pocket Die, cut three pieces of DSP.
2. Fold side flaps in on each piece.
3. Apply sticky strip to the side flaps and adhere all three together side-by-side.
4.  Adhere each of the flaps to one side.  This helps make a prettier finished project as there are no flaps sticking out on the inside.
5.  Cut the bottom flaps on an angle as shown.  
6. Adhere the sides together to form a triangle shaped tube.
7. Fold the bottom flaps in and adhere.
8.  Using a pencil lightly curve the upper sections.
9. Cut a variety of flowers using the Fun Flowers Die and the Five Petal punch and mount on skewers.
10.  Add leaves cut from the DSP.
Because this is light-weight and therefor a bit top heavy, I put glass pebbles inside to help it stand upright.

I have more ideas to share stop back tomorrow!
