    Step 3

    1. Trim your print out to 6" x 11" making sure the image falls at the 3" mark
    2. Cut 6” x 3/4” wide strips as you see in the photo. You will need 16 strips so save the extra pieces for filler
    3. With your safety pin, poke a hole on each end of each strip 1/4” up from the edge and right in the center
    4. Poke a hole in the center of the large sequins if you need to
    5. Cut the straw to 3"
    6. Bend a loop in the end of the wire
    7. Add a bead and then a sequin
    8. Line your strips in a stack in order
    9. Starting at the top of the stack, thread them on the wire FACE DOWN toward the sequin
    10. Add the straw
    11. Starting from the strip that touches the sequin, thread each strip on the wire one by one
    12. Add a sequin, then a bead, clip and bend a loop in the wire.
    Hand on a ribbon and you're done!
