Step 1: Finish Peacock.
  1. Cut strips of orange tissue and glue around the cup until it is all covered including the base(Which in our case will end up as the top).
  2. Glue row of ribbon or twine around the top of the cup (which in our case, will be the base))
  3. Using your Versa Mark watermark stamp pad, stamp all over an A4 sheet of paper. (We used one covered in tiny flowers). It gives texture to your work.
  4. Colour with purple FLIPTEZ.
  5. Take the A4 sheet of paper and fold in concertina fashion along the LONG edge of the paper. (We made our folds about 1cm wide).
  6. Once the pleating is finished fold the paper in half longwise and glue the two meeting edges together.
  7. Once dry, use scissors to cut out triangles from the paper giving the pointed finish as shown.
  8. Use coloured pencils to colour in the,' Downloaded', Peacock face  or if hesitant to draw the features just add a gem where the eye would be, having coloured the head in dark blue or purple.
  9. Add gems to the now dry tail of the Peacock.
  10. Using the pointed edge of the scissors, make an incision into the base of the cup. Insert the tail.
  11. Glue on the head and you have a magnificent peacock for your room.
