piece of ribbon, glue ends together to make a loop and then glue the center together to make a
box. Glue to center of ribbon on the box.
3. Roll out 1/8” thick sheet of clay onto the work surface. Use the craft knife to cut sixteen ¼” X
3’4” strips of clay for the daisy petal. Apply a dot of glue to the center of the bow. Place 8 petals
