Paper Succulent Crate Display

I love the look of various succulents snuggled together in a worn container with lots of character. The colors and textures work so well together. This inspired me to create a display of paper succulents in a vintage, wooden crate.

I used a neutral color palette so that the shapes and textures would stand out.


For several of the succulents, I adhered old sheet music, old dictionary pages and an old map to copy paper then die cut the shapes using my Succulent 2D & 3D die by Sizzix. I die cut my Barrel Cactus 3D with neutral colors of scrapbooking paper.




I die cut a variety of materials including wood veneer, burlap, corrugated board and coffee filters to add texture. I used all Sizzix dies that I will list below unless they are no longer available.


I filled the sections of the wood crate with a styrofoam block and attached the various shapes with hot glue. To finish the piece, I filled the gaps with moss.

My original plan was to display this vertically. I had so much fun playing with all of these shapes. Enjoy!
