  1. Cut out the petal template on the next page. Draw around it twice on your yellow paper or card
  2. Cut out your 2 shapes
  3. Gentle crease the card along the middle of each petal to give them a 3D shape
  4. Using glue stick or double sided tape stick them together crossing the petals
  5. Cut out a strip of coloured card about 8cm by 3cm, give the top edge a crinkle cut
  6. Along the bottom edge snip along the length with 0.5cm cuts, to create a short frill
