3.) Repeat this step with any additional paper mache letters. Don't be concerned if your cuts are not perfect, they will be hidden by your fresh flowers!

7.) Next, select chosen flowers and cut them so you have the buds of the flower and a bit of the bud stem remaining. (Approximately ½ inch of stem)
