Let's get crafting!
Step 1: Cut a piece of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper 12” x 7”, score at 6” along the long side and fold to create a base card 6” x 7”. Cut a piece of silver cardstock 6” x 7” and adhere to the front of the card. Cut a piece of pattern paper 5 7/8” x 6 7/8” and adhere to the front of the card.

Step 7: Shape the leaves and flowers in the HCFB1-5005 3D Magnolia Shaping Mold. Have the small flowers and leaves with the stamped side down and the larger flowers with the stamped side up.
Step 8: Assemble Magnolias using two of each size flowers. For the small buds use a hot glue gun to shape the petals into a bud. Shape the flowers to show the flowers in different stages from opening into a full open flower. Add the green petals to the bud and the small flowers.
