HOW TO

    1. Using a yardstick, measure and mark poster board per template below. Cut full circles and then half circles. Fold each and then cut again until you have 12 quarter pieces.

  1. Next fold and cut three doilies into quarter pieces.
  2. Apply glue on one side of each poster board piece using glue sticks, and attach onto a doily, aligning the pointed edges. Trim away excess paper.
  3. Overlap the two straight edges of each poster-board piece, forming a cone. Run a bead of hot glue (on the lowest heat setting) along one side to hold the cone in shape.
  4. Using the single-hole punch, make a hole on either side of the cone, near the top edge, and feed a 2-foot-long piece of ribbon through the holes.
  5. Place a piece of moist fl oral foam in the corner of a plastic bag, and insert it in the cone.
  6. Begin your bouquet by adding flowers from the center out. Tie the ribbon at the top for hanging on a doorknob.
