10. Then glue the two halves together with a skewer end sandwiched about 1-2 centimeters between the halves. Use paper clips to hold it all together until the glue dries if necessary.

Then use the green felt tip marker to draw the curve down the leaf like you see on the template. Now you can glue a leaf onto the skewer.

Repeat these steps for as many tulips as you like. The more, the merrier!
