Two enlarged flowers are made and fastened, front and back, to a slip-over foundation. The flowers themselves may be reinforced with wire of two thicknesses or the paper may be pasted or stitched together. The shading of the flowers may be made by cutting pieces of crepe of a contrasting color in the correct shape and pasting in place.
