This was fun to make! I used ranger ink to dab the board with and really like the ink. Hadn't used it much prior to this but I will be using this ink a lot now!
The flower is one I made. Cut layers with cricut and the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. Sprayed them with Tattered Angel's Glitter Mist and assembled.

1 (20”x30”) foam board
Exacto knife, metal ruler and cutting mat
Aleene’s Glue (I used Fast Grab Tacky Glue)
Flat-headed pins (“Satin” pins work well and are easy to find)
Pieces to cut:
Back cut 1 4”x12”
Sides cut 2 5 ¼”x 12”
Top cut 1 4”x5”
Bottom cut 1 4”x5”
Shelves cut 3 4”x5” (these 3 are notched - see pic below)
Top Front cut 1 2 ½”x3”
Bottom Front cut 1 1”x4”
Divider cut 1 2 ¼”x 8 ½” (this piece has 3 down-slanted notches for the shelves, and the bottom is slanted also - see pic below)
Lay the back down on a flat surface and stand the long end of one side against the long end of the back. Glue in place and pin. Do the same for the other side.
Glue and slide the notched shelves into the notched divider. Let dry.
While the glue is drying, go back to the sides and back. Add the top front piece to the sides that are attached to the back. Now add the top piece. This goes under the top front piece. Glue and pin.
Position the divider with shelves, glue and pin.
Place the bottom piece under the divider, glue and pin.
Add the bottom front under the bottom piece you just attached, glue and pin.
That’s it! Decorate as you choose or leave it white. Enjoy!
