Cut two petal cones from Basic Black card stock. TIP: Cut them separately or some of the score lines might be cut through. Remove 1 triangle—NOT the one with the flap, from ONE of the pieces.
Snip the edges of the of the flaps as shown in Photo above.
Use the cut off triangle (remove 'cone' part) as a template to cut three DSP triangles from the Designer Series Paper. Before using this piece as a template and tracing the shape onto the DSP, mark 1/8" from each edge with a pencil and then remove 1/8” from each edge. Then each triangle will layer nicely on the card stock. Attach the DSP triangles to the Basic Black card stock piece before shaping into the vase.
Form the vase by attaching the remaining triangles. See photo for adhesive placement.
Fold the piece with the ‘loose’ flap first when constructing your triangle.
Remove about 1/2” from the top of the vase. (You will be inverting the petal die from its "normal" position.)
Set the vase aside and make the Daffodils.........
Using the Fun Flowers die and the Big Shot, die cut 2 sets of flowers using the medium and small 'larger' flowers and the scalloped edged small center.
Large flower: score it as shown in the photo above, from the petal points to the center. Pinch along the scored lines.
Middle flower: Apply Snail to center of the back center of flower and attach to larger flower. Bend up the petals, resembling a daffodil center.
Small center: Sponge the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink. Attach to Middle flower with Dimensional.
Stems: Cut 6 pieces, 1/4" wide and at least 9" long from Old Olive card stock.
Working on scrap paper (snail packaging for example), apply Snail adhesive all along 4 of the long Old Olive strips. “Sandwich” the unsnailed (new word) strip between the 2 snailed strips to create the stem.
Attach stems to back of the two flowers and determine what length you would like your stems to be. Snip accordingly. Insert in vase. Cut some very narrow strips of Old Olive card stock, drag them gently along the edge of a table to break some of the fibers and give the piece a gentle curve, and place them in the vase. I haven't done that yet so you don't see those pieces in my vase. :)
Ribbon: Tie the 12” piece of 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon around the stems/top of vase. DONE!
