As soon as this arrived I had to make one for my sister, she lives in a small coastal town and it just made me think of how it looks in the summer.

Flower Shop Finishing School Craft Box – Made Easy
Today, we are going to be creating a card with the Flower Shop Finishing School Craft Box. This is the second of this year’s Finishing School Craft Boxes, and we know that you will have the best time make these cards that create gorgeous flower shops that stand at attention. The Flower Shop Finishing School Craft Box is a hybrid product; it’s a card kit and die set that also includes step by step video instruction for 6 different projects. If you aren’t on the autoship, you can get the single ship a la carte on our website this week! Click here to get yours on sale on our website this week. Just think of all the store fronts that you could make for all occasions and even holidays. Wouldn’t a Halloween or Christmas flower shop be amazing?
Come create a flower shop with us!
First use the flower shop die to cut a piece of matte gold foil cardstock. Our matte foil cardstocks show off the detail of these dies beautifully!
Cut the Base to 5 x 7, and cut the shadow layer of the store and the easel mechanism.
Use double-sided adhesive to secure the easel mechanism to the top, back of the card base.
Then, add double-sided adhesive to the front of the easel mechanism and place the shadow layer on top.
Use stacked foam squares to add height to your awning and start to add the decorative pieces to the flower shop.
Inlay pieces in another color (we used the blue from the card kit) to make a beautiful store front.
The embellishments in the kit make such a wonderful scene.
Use the stopper diecut and signature card to create a stopper for your easel card.
Someone in your life needs fresh flowers; make this card and send it to them!
There are many interpretations of flower shops that can be made with the Flower Shop Finishing School Craft Box.
Round your awning to make your card more 3D.
Play with mixing different patterns to make a lovely card.
The flower shop cards are just the thing to celebrate birthdays.
Your gorgeous flower shops can also have a shop kitty! The options are endless!
What’s fun is that this tutorial will be available for one week before it is added to our long list of archived projects. We will also be doing a special May Finishing School Live completely on the Flower Shop Finishing School Craft Box tomorrow at noon Eastern. Be sure to join us on AGTV for a full hour on all things flower shop. We will have a beginner, intermediate and advanced project, so come ready to craft!
Lovely kit and cards so inspired 😍
I haven’t had time to play with my Flower Shop die set yet, so I certainly enjoyed this tutorial. I am looking forward to AGTV in a little bit so I can see more of this beautiful die set in action.
I LOVE the 3D dies and Anna’s Easel cards are the BEST, when put together they are magical.
Every beautiful love these craft boxes because they keep on giving once your products have been used we are able with the dies in each continue to create these beautiful cards with any paper we have available in our craft rooms. Thank you Anna and Team for sharing creative ideas with us and producing such fantastic items to make our projects to beautiful in the making. God bless everyone and have a great week. I will see you on AGTV later today.
I love this flower shop. My grandmother had a floral shop inside a 5 and dime store my grandparents owned and operated in the 50’s and 60’s. She would adore this today. I was not able to get on the a/s and tried and called HSN. I have this in my cart now and will have to watch the AGTV replay. I love these cards and saw a Christmas one on FB that someone made. Ideas are endless and what a beautiful way to scrapbook some old pictures of my grandparents and their storefront. Thank you for all the beautiful things you and your team design and create! LOVE.
Love, love this!
I LOVE this Flower Shop Craft Box!!! I’ve watched a couple of videos and made one card so far. The Finishing School videos are so easy to follow and I like that I can pause, rewind, and rewatch if I miss something! I have many Anna Griffin products but this series of Flower Craft Boxes are my favorite so far! Absolutely “beautiful in the making”! 🙂
Thank you for this extra video and example cards!
I will be working tomorrow but will watch the replay of the Live session after work.
I love this craft box. What’s so great is how versatile these dies are. I can make the flower shop or an old fashioned general store or any other type of shop. At Christmas, I can use this along with the houses & church to create a little village. What a wonderful addition!
Looking forward to using my kit.
GORGEOUS cards!🤩👏🏽👏🏽 This craft box is definitely on my wish list!🙌🏽🙏🏽
Just love this kit. I’ve made all the projects in finishing school and just keep going.The box makes a great cover for a tissue box.
I received my Flower Shop card kit last week, but been so busy with mother’s day last weekend and work I haven’t had a chance to work with it yet. Today’s post is inspirational, but can’t wait for tomorrow’s class that will include the intermediate and the advanced. I would love to see this as a 4 sided Flower Shop that would be wonderful, I may try to figure that one out.
Question will you be getting more of the Celebration Chest Kit in stock soon? I really would have loved to have one for Memorial day, but really, really want to get the kit for July 4th cards, my email has been on the waiting list for it to get back in-stock for a while now, so that is why I am inquiring or are you going to have something even more spectacular for July 4th coming out?
Thanks again for all these great ideas.
Love these inspiring cards! Such beautiful colors.
Lovely cards! Would love to see this in a card kit.
It is in a kit for those that did the auto-ship on the Flower Cart, the autoship this month was the Flower Shop, then we still have the 3D Wishing Well in August and the 3D Fountain in Nov. However, I think I heard Anna say that the Flower Shop Card Kit will be coming out just a little later for purchase separately after those of us that got it with Auto-Ship.
I just saw this in the Finishing School for the Flower Shop, stating you can buy it ala carte this week at this website link below – good-luck and enjoy
I have the Flower shop (and flower cart) and I have made it with the rectangular awning but not the round awning…so will keep on making these cards to send to friends in so many different looks…so much fun! (made many with the Flower cart)!
Everything is lovely💕
Well, that definitely is a must-have (card kit) just lovely Anna
I ordered this and I am so excited to start making them! UPS says the delivery is “pending”! AHHH! What the heck?! (Yes, I’m that hooked on AG’s cards!)
I would love to see an Autumn or Christmas embellishment kit❗️I can’t think of any of your past “holiday” kits that would have the right size flowers, etc. that would work as well.
Love, love, love the Flower Shoppe …. Always wanted to own one‼️
Love the idea of Autumn and Christmas, and well, all the Holiday embellishments. I suggested that for the fireplace dies….may work there too! And the Garden Arch and Gazebo😊
Gorgeous kit! Can’t wait to use it.
Flower market die is very cool.
I absolutely love the flower market! I can’t wait for tomorrow to see what beautiful projects we can make from AGTV!
So very pretty !!
Mine just arrived and I cannot wait to get started. Thank you for creating such a fun and beautiful concept. Love the Autoship selection from HSN, looking forward to ALL to come.
Oh I love this! I would love to have this craft post.
You have outdone yourself!
CANNOT wait until tomorrow! I loved Flower Cart and this is promising to be a winner as well. I always wait for Anna to teach us the new product because I don’t want to mess them up. See everyone tomorrow, and Thank You Anna again for all you teach us.
Another great production of cards! The inspiration never ends and so thankful for that
Could you , would you. Make a die set with the benches, wicker chairs, lamp posts, window frames, and all the extras from flower cart too. ? Maybe with a wheel barrow and wagon. I think it would sell like hot cakes
I agree because once I’ve used all the things you provide, I’m likely to shelve the kit for lack of inventory. Do you happen to have a refill kit available? That would help, too. Providing only 2 samples of each piece limits my creativity, so please consider including more in each kit.
The refill kit has same amount of items as original kit. Nothing extra
Absolutely lovely 🌹
Oh I LOVE this die set, it is just beautiful! I will keep my fingers crossed to see if I WIN!!!! 🙂 ::) THANK YOU!!!!
Loved all the pictures!
I LOVE this kit! Gorgeous!
I love my flower shop dies! One request though, please make an add on die set for the lamppost and the window mullions. Thanks Anna for all your beautiful creations.
Great idea Margaret! 😊
Happy Terrific Tuesday everyone! I have received my Flower Shop Box; but haven’t had the opportunity to create yet. I’m glad I waited – love the tutorial and all the stunning examples! Waiting with anticipation for tomorrow’s AGTV. Hope everyone enjoys a safe and blessed day.
Love the sweet little awnings over the doors or windows. Also, I love the flower shop kitty! My eyes are drawn to the door wreaths because I am a wreath lover❣️
