Then, alternately, each petal must be processed three times. First, draw a rod with streaks along the entire length of the petals. Next we take the yellow paint and slightly cover the front side, and the crushed stripes will be clearly visible. And for the third treatment, take the lighter.It is necessary to warm up small portions of the edges of the petals and direct the arms of the edge to the face of the petal at once with their hands.

Next we glue the upper petal and only then place the two lower side lobes. All the details are glued to the bent bottom edges and placed around the wire. All petals should not be tightly pressed against each other. But if on the wrong side get an ugly edge, then it is better to close it with a small circle of suede.

Do not forget that the branch will be two flowers. And go to making one bud. Cut off the yellow suede strip 1 cm wide and six cm long. Divide into 3 parts and round two corners on one side. We get three long forms of petals. Then tint the top of these blanks in green. We wrap a small piece of wire with tape and attach a small foil ball from above. Petals should be slightly above the foil parts.
