    The video is helpful, although you have to wade through six minutes of absolutely unrelated discussion in a twelve minute video.

    Does anyone know where I can find the instructions to make the paper flowers Martha showed at the beginning of part 1?

    I wonder if this would also work with some type of fabric? I can't find double-sided crepe paper near me and ordering it for my daughter's class project appears to be cost-prohibitive. Any ideas?

    I am not very computer savvy. Is there particular software or a certain type of printer I need to print the templates?
