Assembling the Christmas Cactus

Join the leaves as shown in the diagrams. To stiffen the branches use metal wire and glue the leaves on them. Add the flowers also to the wires.

Then you can bend the wires and form the branches.

To assemble the total cactus you may stick the wire ends in a polystyrene block.

The sizes of the (square) sheets used are:

   40   Leaves    6.0  cm      2.7"
   10   Flowers   7.5  cm      3.0"
    3   Buds      3.75 cm      1.5"
