Plan and prep. Make sure you have all of your items ready and accessible to start the project.
Have fun. This project is about expressing your personal style and to create patterns that thrill you (that’s right, let your inner-child express its creativity). There aren’t many rules for this one, but feel free to replicate the patterns as shown in the picture below. We layered squares, circles and triangles to create a cohesive look!
Create the squares. Select your desired tape, and cut squares using your scissors or sharp knife on the cutting board. We suggest cutting them in advance and position along the way.
Create the triangles. Select your desired tape, and cut angled lines using the sharp knife on the cutting board. We suggest cutting them in advance and setting aside. Use along the way as you figure out your patterns.
Create the circles. Select your desired tape, and adhere strips to a piece of wax paper. Use your circle punch to punch multiple circles on this strip. To adhere the circles to your mug, simply separate the wax paper from the tape, and position on your mug.
Design time. Use all your pre-cut shapes to create designs around all your mugs. You can overlap, re-position and play to express yourself and create the design that works best for you.
Background display. Position your shelves as indicated on their package instructions. Place your chalkboards between shelving as you desire, and display your garden on shelves with a chalkboard background and use your chalk to label.
Finished! It’s a beautiful area in your home to display your gardening skills through an indoor herb garden.
