3. Shape each layer of flowers using the Tool 'n One and the Stylus Tips for Tool n' One
NOTE: A foam mat is recommended when shaping the flowers.

4. Layer the Cinch and Go Poinsettia flowers to create 3 flowers with assorted layers
5. Pop up each layer using 3D Foam Squares in the centre of each layer for extra dimension.
