Step 9: On the paper or a cardboard draw a woman’s silhouette in a hat 5” (12.5 cm) in height. Cut it.

Step 10: Encircle the silhouette on the brown paper and cut it. Make small cuts on the dress hem.

Step 11: Stick the tape to the back side of the silhouette.

Step 12: Cut off 3” (7 cm) of the silver wire, get the glass beads and the silver bead.

Step 13: Thread the bead on the wire and twist the wire above it.

Step 37: Cut off 16” (40 cm) of the wire and fold it 4 times (the middle part should be shorter).

Step 38: Thread the glass beads on the center of the wire and on the ends. Bend the ends.



Step 39: Twist the ends of the wire.

Step 40: Twist the wire in the upper part leaving 0,4” (1 cm) from the glass beads.

Step 41: Insert the leaves between the wire, make a small fold and twist the wire over the leaves. The bottom of the bud fix with a separate wire, tightly twisting it.

Step 42: Make the concertina fold of a flower and wrap it around the wire so that the glass beads are seen from the bud.

Step 43: Spread the bud.

Step 44: Make two more flowers in the same way.

Step 45: Cut off 4” (10 cm) of the jute yarn and separate it into two parts.
