What sentiments are included in this Build-A-Garden set?

  • may all your dreams come true
  • cherish every moment
  • every day is a gift
  • with deepest sympathy
  • thinking of you
  • thank you
  • sending a bouquet of hugs
  • happy birthday
  • sending smiles across the miles
  • wishing you happiness

Designer's Tips

1. The C3 layer in the stencil is optional. Without it, you will have a perfectly smooth vase. With it, your vase will have elegant textured grooves!

2. Ink the vase in gray tones to give it a stone look.

3. Tulips bloom in many different colors. Have fun experimenting with your own palette!

Why Are Tulip Designs Beloved by Crafters and Artists?

Tulip designs are a beloved theme in arts and crafts for several reasons. For one, the tulip is a symbol of spring and represents perfect or true love. It is admired in various cultures for its beauty and elegance.

Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama herself often uses the tulip motif in her artwork, and one of her notable depictions of tulips can be found in the piece titled With All My Love for the Tulips, I Pray Forever (2011).

For another, they're just downright charming. With those graceful petals and elegant shapes, they're essentially nature's little poetry in flower form! Plus, as stated above, tulips come in a whole rainbow of colors, so they're super versatile. Whether you're going for a soft pastel vibe or a bold burst of color, there's a tulip for every occasion.

Finally, let's not forget how timeless they are, too. Tulips never go out of style, so you can bet your bottom dollar that your card or craft will still look amazing years down the line.
