Instructions

Girl Vase
Step 1
Lay the vase on its side on top of scrapbook paper. The scrapbook paper should be face down.

Step 2
Mark the width using bottom of vase and roll the paper around the vase to determine the length needed. Overlap by 1.3 cm (½").

Step 3
Secure paper to the vase with double sided tape. (Hint: Thinner paper works best, but if you use heavier paper, place small pieces of double-sided tape in multiple places around vase to ensure attachment.)

Repeat process, positioning the remainder of daisies around the middle flower as shown.
