  10. Take the small flower and turn it upside down onto a foam mat. Use a ball tool and go around each petal in a circular motion. With your fingers gently squeeze one of the petals together to create a small triangle. Bring the opposite petal and glue it so that it sits around the first one.

  11. Add some glue to the other petals and bring them up to the main bud squeezing gently as you do it and hold for just a few minutes.

  12. Take the other 3 flowers that you coloured and this time using the ball tool and with the flowers the right way up go around each petal in circular motions. Then again in the centre of each flower. Glue the flowers together starting with the bud then the next size flower working your way to the larger one until you have one large flower.
