Place your template on top of some white card. Place both on top of a cutting mat.
Tape the template down to the mat to avoid movement.
Using a sharp craft knife, follow the lines of the template. You may need to go over the lines a few times to cut through the paper and card.
When finished push the ‘petal shapes’ up away from the back card to create the 3d effect.
