2. Use the toothpick to cut a small rectangle out of the flatten plasticine. 

3. Roll with your fingers the rectangle to shape the heart of the flower. 

4. Using the rolling pin flatten another piece of plasticine. Cut using the toothpick the first petal. Place the petal around the heart of the flower. Press gently the bottom of the petal to join it to the heart. 

5. Cut one more petal and wrap the flower. Press the bottom to join the petal to the flower. 

6. Continue in this manner. As the flower grows bigger you need to cut larger petals.
