Posy Assembly Instructionsf

  • It is best to use hot glue. This will make the flower hold together better.
  • To make a beautiful bouquet you can use green wire for stems.
  • Chalking or inking the petals before glueing gives the flowers a more finished realistic look.
  • This flower starts with a flat base.
  • Base: (Optional) curl one end of your wire around to make a loop. insert other end of wire through the hole in the base. The loop of the wire should end up inside the cone. Add a little glue for security.
  • 1st and 2nd Row of Petals: Cut 2 of the bigger flowers. Crease along the dashed line to make the petals lift up. Glue them onto the base one inside of the other and alternating the petals. You well end up covering up the hole (which is only for the optional wire).
  • Glue them onto the base, one inside of the other, and alternating the petals. You well end up covering up the hole (which is only for the optional wire). 
  • 3rd and 4th Row of Petals: Cut 2 of the smaller flowers. Crease along the dashed line to make the petals lift up. Glue them onto the 2nd row of petals, one inside of the other, and alternating the petals. 
  • Glue them onto the base one inside of the other and alternating the petals. You well end up covering up the hole (which is only for the optional wire). 
  • Center: Crease the center flowers along the dashed lines (accordion style). It doesn't have to be perfect. Cut as many of these as you would like to fill the center of the flower. 
  • Add a dot of glue to the inside of the 4th row of petals and insert the crumpled flowers. Don't let them lie flat ... let the petals pop up.
