1 Use the di­a­gram on p88 as a guide. Make a tight coil with a whole strip. Use half strips to make six loose coils the same size and at­tach. Use 170mm lengths to make six 20mm rings. Pinch at each end to make a pe­tal shape. Stick be­tween the loose coils to make a flower. 2 Stick three 50mm strips on top of each other and fold in half. Curve into an arch and stick be­tween two petals to fill gaps. Re­peat five times. Wrap strips around the out­side to cre­ate three lay­ers and form the shape. 3 Use quar­ter strips to make six eye shapes to go in each pe­tal. Cut twelve 70mm strips and fold in half. Coil each end out and fill in the gaps on the petals and outer edge. Use a 130mm strip for a semi cir­cle shape and a 60mm strip for a loop to hang. Stick to top of bauble and add pink and red gems. Hang us­ing a length of glit­ter cord, to fin­ish.
