3Use paper punch to make hole in center of six 1-1/2 inch diameter flowers. Refer to photo to arrange and use glue spots to attach six flowers to top of ball. Carefully insert pointed end of one pencil vertically into center of one flower. Then insert remaining pencils at slight angles into remaining flowers.
