*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.
Instructions:

Note:  It is helpful to arrange this piece on a champagne glass stem as you are working with it, so you can see how the bells and pearls hang down.

1.  Carefully cut out the wedding bell design from the dried paper casting. Apply a coat of varnish to both sides and edges and let dry thoroughly.
2.  Using the center of the ribbon as your "base," wrap the wire stems of the 2" flowers around the ribbon, and secure them in place with glue.
3.  Glue on the pearl strings.
4.  Put the two pieces of tulle together to make a double layer 3" x 12"; gather the long 12" edge with needle and thread and draw it tight; then tie it off. Glue the tulle into place.
5.  Glue on the wedding bells cut-out.
6.  This piece will be seen from both sides, so tuck in the rough edges, and cover them up by gluing on the 3/4" flowers.
