I had so much fun designing this vase. In my head, I was going to create something with organic patterns; but, once I got going, I must have been in an art deco mood, because this took shape!

3D Vase

Supplies

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the 3D vase pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully, that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

2. Start by layering all the ornamental pieces to the front of each side piece.

Note: It helps to curl both the longer white pieces as well as the top portion of the side pieces before attaching.

 

3. Next, fold along all the score lines, and begin attaching each of the pieces to the hexagon base, gluing the tabs to the inside. Only do the base tabs and bottom section tabs to start.

Once each section is attached to the base, glue each side together using the tabs provided—one or two tabs at a time, and work your way up to the top.

 

4. Glue your small, white pieces to the inside of the small, top section of the vase. Then, add any gems or embellishments that you’d like in order to give the whole thing some more pizzaz.

That’s it! This project may look really fancy, but it’s actually one of my simplest 3D projects to date. And it’s functional too—double win!

3D Vase

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other 3D freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making your very own, 3D vase! I hope you have as much fun putting it together as I did. Be sure to share your stunning results with me on Instagram!

    Looks fabulous Mandee. I’ve been wanting to ask you from a long long time, would you create a 3D bell, that has minimum peices and is easy to create in any size. I’ve seen square bell files but I always wanted a round bell like brass temple bells we find in temples in India.

      I don’t make my own flowers very often; but, when I do, I just use floral wire and floral tape to make the stems. 🙂
