String an H8 on an eye pin from the flat side. Thread the flower through the cup which you have created and additionally string an R8. Shorten the pin with the pliers and create a loop (fig. no. 4). Complete all 25 flowers in this manner.
String an H6 on an eye pin from the flat side and 6x R10 and create a loop (fig. no. 5). You will need 26 of these pins.
Cut off ca 44 cm of memory wire and create a loop at one end. String 90x R8 on the wire. Begin alternately stringing the created pins and the flowers; pin, flower, etc. Then straighten everything (fig. nos. 6a and 6b).
