  5. Prepare fabric to create flowers and leaves by fusing fusible web to fabric.  Follow directions on fusible web packaging.  Use Sissix Die Cutter to create flowers.  To create leaves, use scissors to cut fabric in shape of leaves.

Attach Universal Point.  Follow directions as before.  Create flower stems by holding tool with Universal Point and draw a line from the top of where the flower will start down to the flower pot.  Hold the tool as if holding a pencil.  Go slowly and do not press hard.  Make as many stems as you have flowers.  Unplug tool.  Let cool.
