  5. Scrunch a piece of red tissue paper up and twist at the end.
  6. Tape to the end of the arms to look like a bouquet of red flowers.

  3. Glue on the white triangle to the large rectangle to look like the groom's shirt.
  4. Draw on a bow tie using the red felt top pen.
  5. Scrunch up a piece of red tissue paper and glue to the side of the jacket to look like a flower.
  6. Cut the head of the groom from the photo.
