Susan's Garden 3-D Wheelbarrow

I have another very fun and easy die from Susan's Garden to show you.  This is the  3-D Wheelbarrow.  I don't know how Susan does it, but her dies are always so easy to work with (assemble) and are very, very realistic.  The length from end of wheel to end of handle is about 7".  The easy instructions for assemble are in the die package.  You can use your imagination and come up with many great ways to color your wheelbarrow.  I used heavy brown card stock and because I liked the look, I added three brads to the sides.  You glue or tape these pieces together, but I went the extra step by adding the brads.  You could use many different fun things to "paint" it such as Distress Stains or Distress Crackle Paint. 

I created a bunch of the Susan's Garden "Mini Dasies" to fill my wheelbarrow.  I put a piece of Styrofoam in it and glue a piece of natural moss on top.  I made 12 mini daisies and some sprigs of "Ivy" created with the Susan's Garden "Fern & Ivy" leaves dies.  The ivy sprigs were very easy to create; I cut about a two inch piece of Panacea "Cloth Wire" (which is green) and after shaping and coloring the leaves, glued them to the wire. 

I know you will have fun creating this cute wheelbarrow and filling it with your favorite flowers from the Susan's Garden flower dies.   Yesterday someone asked me how large the birdhouse is.  The base is about 3" and it is about 6" tall.
