How to Make
Add black patterned circles around the edge of your flower. Use sticky foam pads to attach the flower at the top of the stem – add them behind each petal and the flower centre.
Turn your circle punch upside down when making the funky two-colour petals – this makes it easier to see where the punch will cut and helps to avoid waste!
