3. Cut two 1 inch sections from drinking straw. Tape the straw sections to the back of Caterina’s wings.
4. Tape penny to the back of Caterina’s bottom. (for weight)
5. String the yarn through the straw sections with the loop at the top.
6. Tape Flowers to the ends of each side of string about five inches apart.
7. Optional: if you are a perfectionist you may want to print another template and cut the extra set of flowers to double stick tape back-to-back over the string so that they have ‘finished’ look.
