Pop-Up Paper Bouquet How-To
1. Remove cardboard backing from both sides of each bell, and snip off the two tabs that have staples. Cut bell into petal shapes
2. Rub a glue stick along the straight edge of the petal (indicated in the photo by the dotted lines) to create a thick layer of glue; glue petal to floral wire.
3. While glue is still wet, open up the petal to create a full bloom and secure flower shut with glue. Continue to make tissue flowers in various shapes and sizes until you have enough for a full bouquet. Let dry before arranging. Our bouquet has about 20 blooms.
