Step 3.

Use scissors to cut along these lines. On the bottom edge of the plate, make (3) small cuts about ½ inch long. This will help keep the plate in place when inserted into the pine cone. Tip: Children, as young as preschool, can practice using scissors while cutting along a line drawn by an adult.
