Project Instructions

Step: 1

Rub the knife across the wax candle for ease of cutting and cut the cone of STYROFOAM brand foam approximately 5-1/2” from the larger side.


Step: 2

Carefully roll the sides of the trimmed cone base across the scrapbook paper and trace the top and bottom edges using the pencil. Use scissors to cut the traced paper piece.


Step: 3

Trace around the smaller end of the cone onto the paper and cut out the traced circle.


Step: 4

Use the Tombow glue to cover the sides and bottom of the cone base with the paper.


Step: 5

Trim the gerberas to 12” and 7” and insert them into the center of the larger top end of the paper covered cone base, using the picture as a guide.


Step: 6

Insert the tulip leaf between the gerberas. Trim the eucalyptus to different lengths between 12” and 7” and insert them around the sides and behind the gerberas.


Step: 7

Trim the rose stems to approximately 4” to 5” and insert them around the bottom of the gerberas. Leaving space on one side for adding the geranium leaves.


Step: 8

Insert the geranium leaves on one side and use hot glue to secure all of the leaves and stems.


Tips

Keep your designs simple and elegant by using only two daisies and a grouping of smaller flowers or roses around the base. Cover the base with coordinating colors of scrapbook paper to tie everything all together.
