Repeat this process with the medium sized petals and then with the larger petals.The split circle shape on the die is used to create the base of the flower and should be cut from green felt. Stick this with hot glue to the underside of the assembled flower, bringing the split edges together to form a shallow cone. This will neaten the flower off.
