1. Cut out the upper part of your letters using the actu: 739781 cutter.
2. Curl the letters in gold, making sure to paint their entire outer surface. Leave to dry, then use the spray can to varnish them inside and out. For this step, do not hesitate to put yourself outside and remember to protect the ground with a tarp or old newspapers. Let it dry again.
3. Cut the Oasis foam using a knife to completely fill each letter.
4. Once all your pieces have been cut, sprinkle them or immerse them in water, then surround them with cellophane so as not to wet your cardboard letters. Then put all of your foam pieces back inside the letters. The humidified foam will keep your flowers for more than two days.
