Floral crown:

Use the wire to create a circle around your head that comfortably fits. Wrap the wire around four times to establish a sturdy headband. Next, take a flower of your choice and using a four-inch piece of wire, wrap it tightly around the headband using a plier. Continue to layer the flowers closely till 1/3 of the headband is left empty. Lastly, use the floral tape to wrap the exposed wire from one end to the other. Enjoy wearing the stylish piece you have created.

Geometric lanterns:

Use two pieces of tissue paper folded in half together and then fold them in ¾-inch increments the way you would when making a Chinese fan. Unfold and open the increments keeping both tissues layered over each other. Pinch one end of the tissue back together. Next, cut a 12-inch piece of fish wire and with a medium-sized needle, weave through the tissue, connecting the open ends and repeating the process on both sides. Finally, layer the two edges together in the centre with double-stick tape. Hang and enjoy your creation.
