Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.

Place your scrap paper on the table. Put a thin layer of craft glue on one side of both the Skinny Stick and the Mini Clothespin. Use the tip of the glue bottle to spread the glue out evenly.

Step 3.

Sprinkle with yellow glitter. Let dry.

Step 4.

Cut a foam ball in half. Insert the glittered Skinny Stick into the top of the foam ball. Press gently and make sure the Skinny Stick stays straight.

Step 5.

Cover the foam ball with a coiled Fuzzy stick. To do this, first press one end of a yellow Fuzzy stick into the foam ball.

Step 6.

Continue to coil it around the foam ball shape, inserting the other end into the foam and applying glue to secure. Repeat with additional Fuzzy Sticks until covered.

Step 7.

Glue the ball to the middle of the white card stock.

Step 8.

Glue Poms around the ball to look like the petals of a flower. Let Dry.

Step 9.

Cut out the flower.  Tip: Try and cut very close to the poms, so that when the flower is on the table, you won’t see a lot of the white card stock.

Step 10.

Glue the Mini Clothespin to the top of the Skinny Stick. The mouth of the clothespin should be facing up, as shown.

Step 11.

Use the Mini Clothespin to clip your favorite picture to display on your desk or bookshelf.
