    Step-by-step guide

    Cut the cardboard.

    1) Carefully remove the back of your box frame by bending the metal tabs up. Take out the cardboard inside and draw around it on the reverse of the dotty paper. Cut out.

    Arrange the flowers.

    2) Using small pliers, snip off two flowers
    with leaves from your long stem. Place in the centre of the dotty paper
    and glue in place, using small amounts under each petal and leaf that
    is touching the paper. Leave to dry for at least six hours or

    Reassemble your frame.

    3) Stick your paper with the flower to the card backing board with a
    dab of glue to stop it sliding around and leave to dry. Reassemble your
    frame, bending the tabs flat to hold the back in place. Finally give
    the glass a quick wipe to remove any fingerprints.
