Flower

1. Pull a flower off the stem/bush.

First Flower Done

15. Your first flower is done!

 

Second Flower

16. This flower made two new flowers. Here is the layout of the second flower. Notice there is no fancy button on this one. The heart button was too small to add another, so a bead was just placed instead. Follow all the previous steps.
