DAISY TIPS: 1. Hold each Daisy Petal about 1/4″ from the flower center. Curl with your Bone Folder to the tip of the Petal. Do this for all Petals. If you do it right, the flower will stand up like a spider. (Luckily this isn’t creepy or crawly!) 2. The easiest way to put the flowers together is to put Glue Dots behind the center of the top flower. Light lay each of the Petals in the top flower so they are between the Petals on the bottom flower. Whe they are positioned how you like them, press the flower centers together to attach them with the Glue Dots.
