1. With a permanent marker, sketch out your argyle pattern onto your white blank.
2. Score and cut four symmetrical squares from the Cotton Candy Pink Blocks. Arrange on your piece with a small amount of glue.
3. Trace the shape of the remaining white space onto the Sunflower Blocks. This insures a snug fit for your pattern. Score and cut the triangles, and arrange them on your piece. Secure with glue.
4. Place White Stringers diagonally across your piece. Snap the excess length with your fingers.
5. Create the turtle shell by tracing a half circle onto your Opaque Amazon Green Block. With your Pistol Grip Glass Cutter, carefully score and cut the shape.
6. Nip dots of Sunflower Opal Glass Rods into a nipping basket. Arrange on the turtle shell to create spots.
7. Now, using glass pieces leftover from your Sunflower and Amazon Green Blocks, finish your turtle with feet a head, and a face.
8. Let Dry. Contour fuse using the 6 segment program provided.
