Directions

STEP 1

  • Read Avatrex Flower Attitude package instructions. Use computer to type Spring words in large font (i.e. Lilies, Spring, Flowers, Breeze, Rain, Sun, Dew, Plants, Nests, Eggs, Grass, Lilacs, Seedlings, Birds, Tulips, Buds, Garden, Daffodils, Clouds, Rainbows, Honeysuckle, Blossoms, Bugs, Soil, etc.). (Note: Allow extra space around each word for trimming.) Print mirror image of words onto glossy side of Attitude sheet.

STEP 2

  • Use 5" scissors to cut about 1" around each word to remove excess. Cut about 1/8" beyond edge of words following shape of letters, keeping backing paper in place.

STEP 3

  • Working on clean copy paper, apply glue stick to word. Pick up and flip over on pot. Press and smooth. Remove backing paper. Use damp paper towel to remove excess glue from pot. Repeat to attach other words around pot rim. Repeat process for other pots.

STEP 4

  • Place Green Half Ball in one pot. Hot glue to secure. Use wire cutter to trim flower sprigs from one stem. Refer to photo to insert each sprig into foam. Apply hot glue to top of foam and spread handful of Spanish Moss to cover. Repeat with other pots.
