Step 3:

– Divide the cut flowers evenly into 2 parts, each part is glued to the inner wall of half of the vase. 

– Small tip: You should put scratch paper under the vase-shaped cover to avoid sticking it to the cover.

Step 4: 

– Then, you combine the two vase parts together, they will intersect at the side wall of the vase. At this point, you need to line up the two parts’ mouths before gluing the outermost small paper edges of the walls together.

– When the glue is stable, fold the card and open it several times to make the folds smoother.

– Decorate the card as you like and you’re done.
