Cut the image from various shades of yellow and teal cardstock as shown by the 'cutting mat' colour on the cutting screens. TOP TIP: Use the scraper tool to apply the cardstock to the cutting mat to ensure good contact and no air bubbles. Use the spatula tool to carefully remove the cut images, minimising damage to both the image and the cutting mat

Carefully glue the daffodils together. Each flower comprises an inner circle of stamens (dark yellow cardstock) surrounded by a cylindrical fluted shape (light yellow) and an outer three petal flower (dark yellow).

Wrap teal washi tape around skewers, then glue the flowers onto them. Place the flowers in a vase and embellish with the assembled bow.
